We are Simon and Sarah, from Northland, New Zealand and we love crafting beautiful creations in wood and wax.
We enjoy working together to find new ideas, products and designs.
We were commercial beekeepers from 1999 to 2020 - raising queen bees, pollinating avocado and kiwifruit orchards and producing beautiful Northland honey from stunning locations around Whangarei.
At the peak (with the help of some wonderful staff) we ran about 1100 hives, which was exciting, exhausting and, eventually, caused a bunch of back problems. We've sold all but a few of our hives to concentrate on turning wood and making luminaries, candles and other wax items.
All our wax comes from our own hives.
Simon gets huge enjoyment from tramping or simply being in the native forests that abound in Northland. He's fascinated in the shapes and designs that come from nature.
Occasionally he gets to go scuba diving. The all time favourite is diving on the Poor Knights off the east coast of Northland.
Sarah sings like an angel (yeah ok, that's her biased husband speaking!) with a community choir and is loving the creativity involved in the luminaries and other wax products. When she isn't oohing and aahing over the latest creation, she loves to cook, especially Indian.
We enjoy the privilege of living amongst the extraordinary beauty of God's creation in Northland.
