Beautiful thoughtfully made with a personal touch

Welcome!

Beautiful candles and calligraphy gifts for all the family, made especially for you at the edge of the tranquil English Lake District

Every gift from By Moon & Tide is lovingly made by hand in a tiny craft studio on the edge of the Lake District. I’m Claire - I’ve been a calligrapher since 2005, and over the winter months I make scented candles.

My tools are calligraphy pens with metal nibs and jars of ink or coloured paints. They live in glass jars on shelves around my quirky - you might call it messy - calligraphy studio. I use these to create family trees and to write personalised poems and song lyrics in the most beautiful lettering.

Every family tree has a story behind it: some I’ve written have been for grandparents’ milestone birthdays, and others for families spread across continents.

My candles are soy, hand poured, full of character and a delight to unwrap. Every candle is gift wrapped with feel-good extras to create moments of joy. My candle kitchen - you might call it a normal kitchen - smells incredible from September as I spend my days in there mixing wax and oils to create the loveliest gifts!

About By Moon & Tide

A brand inspired by nature

I remember writing a bunch of words on my hand, sat right on the end of the pier in my village, looking out to the sea and the mountains. My business started out as 'The Wedding Calligrapher' but I needed a name with a character I could fall in love with. Scribbled on my hand were 'coastal', 'calligraphy', and all the words I could think of relating to the beach and fells and sunrise... and 'Moon' and 'Tide'. The sea is 5 minutes from my door, and the wild Cumbrian coast is my favourite place in the world - so By Moon & Tide was born.

I began my calligraphy work after leaving a corporate job in Manchester. In my thirties I came home to Cumbria and needed some healing time. I walked along the beaches at 5am. I explored the mountains, lakes and woodlands and I fell in love. My creativity soared. I began teaching calligraphy workshops, developed a collection of alternative family trees and evolved my calligraphy style and offering.
