Holidays - Advent Wreath

Hello! Today was the first Sunday of Advent, so I brought out our Advent Wreath to light tonight at dinnertime. Here's what it looks like:

As you can see, we'll be needing more candles soon - we've used these for several years now and they're beginning to get rather low. 

Here's a close-up of a candeholder section:

I'm not sure what the decorative inlay is called, but it's pretty. The wreath was made in India and was purchased at the Ten Thousand Villages shop in Champaign, IL ten years ago. The wreath frame is actually a plain, solid gold so I wound the artificial greenery around it to make it seem more like the Advent Wreath at church (the latter a much larger example, of course!)
