People often ask me "how did you get into bee jewelry?". Well the truth is I'd been making jewelry for over 15 years before Bee Amour came into being. It wasn't until the spring of 2011 when I had my own hive of bees that these two passions came together.
Fast forward a few years and I was elbow deep in 15 hives with more bees to manage than I knew what to do with! In 2015 Bee Amour partnered with milk + honey spa to create our very own apiary and beekeeping apprenticeship program. Check out our write up in Edible Austin!
After four years of caring for a lot of bees the time finally came to downsize. So now it's back to just me and a few 100'000 bees buzzing together in the peaceful hills of the Barton Creek Greenbelt. All of the bees I use in my jewelry are collected after death and the health and happiness of my hives is my number one priority!
