Beehive Handmade is made up of husband and wife team Jim Dowd and Sandra Bonazoli. Inspired by the design of old kitchenware and home decor items that they found at estate sales and flea markets, they are dedicated to making functional items lasting and decorative. Their collections now includes baby products, holiday ornaments, jewelry, and ceramics, as well as kitchenware. The Beehive Handmade name is meant to connote domesticity and industry.
Both Jim and Sandra hold MFA degrees in jewelry and metals from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. They have been producing their unique collection of pewter home decor items since 1999. Beehive Handmade's metalsmith pieces are handcrafted in Bristol, Rhode Island.
