About Jim Dowd & Sandra Bonazoli, Beehive Handmade

Our studio makes thoughtfully designed, handcrafted metalwork inspired by the past but at home in the present. Our metal housewares are crafted using traditional metalsmithing techniques including sheet metal work, fabrication, casting, and spinning. It is our mission to transform useful humble objects into meaningful things by elevating the experience of everyday tasks. By employing nostalgic motifs in conjunction with simple utilitarian forms we aim to rekindle feelings of joy and pleasure in daily life and evoke memories of the user's personal history.
