Our 25th Year!

Our 25th Year!

This is a big year for us, as we mark the start of the 25th year of Beehive. Way back when, shortly after we got married, we had the idea to create a collection of functional metalwork that would be not only practical, but decorative and fun. We wanted to make special, useful things that would add a little joy to everyday life.

It's funny to think about how little we knew about manufacturing or running a businesses -(oh,  if those spoons could talk!), but we received so much encouragement from our customers and all the creative people we met along the way. People believed in us and that made it easier to believe in ourselves.

If you're not already familiar, you can read more about our story on our website.

Our Commitment to the Environment

Our Commitment to the Environment

April is Earth Month, a time to celebrate our world and take action to protect it. As makers, we often struggle with the challenges of creating objects that are produced responsibly with a minimal carbon footprint. How can we create objects that bring joy to people's homes while being committed to the environment? Over the years, we've made a commitment to ourselves and to the greater good to consciously make business decisions to reduce our impact on the environment. Because, as Thoreau said, "What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?"

Our Studio Practices:

  • Recycle all metal used in making our products, models and dies.
  • Use recyclable and compostable packaging and shipping materials.
  • Commit to working with 80% of our vendors and suppliers within a 20 mile radius.*
  • Cast products with nearly zero-waste.
  • Renovate and maintain our studio building using green technologies.
  • Use carbon-neutral shipping alternatives on all retail orders.
  • Design timeless products not based on trends, that will be passed down and enjoyed for generations.

*In fact, we located our business here in Rhode Island to be close to our suppliers and manufacturing partners.
