Jill Smith

Seminar Speaker

Jill Smith has been a professional ballet dancer and a music industry veteran before devoting herself full-time to the art and business of chandlery.  Her training as a dancer – rhythm, timing, movement, and discipline - transfers well to the demands of candle-making with its attention to detail, temperature and patience.

As the owner of Bees Wax Works on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Jill is an accomplished artisan making beautiful, fragrant hand-dipped candles and growing her business with customers and retailers throughout BC, Alberta, Ontario and the Yukon.
