Beeswax light bulb candles, fueled by irony

Designer Harry Allen has come up with a pair of beeswax light-bulb candles to set the perfect mood at your next eco-party. Each set includes one old-school incandescent bulb and one trendier compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb.

Made of cast-molded natural wax, both bulbs are about 6 inches tall, and can be detached from their beeswax "sockets," too.

The candles sell for $25 a set. They come in four colors — white, gray, green and natural-beeswax beige — and will be ready to ship in late March. No word on whether art will imitate life, with the CFL version lasting 10 times as long as the incandescent.
