The BEL uses fire, gravity, and sound to measure time. Left alone the BEL is a beautiful object for your home, but when the candle is lit, the wax will melt and, eventually, a pin will fall, releasing a soft bell sound to signify the passing of time. For meditation, you can fix your gaze on the flame or listen for the drop of a pin to signify the end of your session.

We’re currently accepting pre-orders for the holidays, but if you need your BEL sooner you can pick one up at

Pre-orders are expected to ship by December 14th.
