Meet your chandlers

Meet Beverly and Dennis Mecum, the chandlers of Southern Oak Artisan. When Dennis and Beverly retired, they decided to live their dream of moving to the North Carolina mountains and start a business crafting handmade candles that are safe to breathe and sustainably made. Southern Oak Artisan was born! 

The intricate detail in each candle they make is a testament to their collective care for those who purchase their products. Drawing inspiration from nature and the surrounding area, their products bring functionality, charm, and a hygge feel to any home. With their exceptional craftsmanship, the Mecums are proud to provide artisan items to those who appreciate them.

We are most proud of being a female-founded, and Veteran-founded small business. We thrive in supporting other entrepreneurs. We love being creative and enjoy providing the best Southern hospitality anyone can offer through our business, Southern Oak Artisan.
