The Heart Spatula Story

As many of you may know, Beehive is a husband-and-wife family company. It all started (although we didn't know it at the time) one Valentine's Day before we were married.

2022 Holiday Ornaments

2022 Holiday Ornaments

Our newest holiday ornaments are inspired by two essential elements of nature - mushrooms and honeybees. Mushrooms are humble and earthy, but we've given ours a touch of holiday magic in shiny, satiny pewter. They're a perfect holiday gift for foragers, gourmands, and outdoorsy types.
Inspired by our namesake, the hardworking honey-bee, our bee ornament is a thoughtful gift for gardeners, bee-keepers, as well as all your industrious, hardworking friends. Kinda can't believe it took us this long to make a Bee ornament!
Each ornament began as an original hand fabricated out of copper and brass sheet stock. The finished pieces are cast in our Rhode Island studio from fine pewter.
