Josh and Georgia Lamborn are the creators of Hive Artisan Collective (HAC). We are a husband and wife team who complement each other's strengths. Head to the bottom of the page to meet the team and get to know each of us.
We live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
We are currently making handmade metal jewellery and metal roses/flowers.
The earrings are elegant and we ensure each piece is made to our best standard. The metal roses/flowers will look stunning wherever you have them. They can be included in a natural flower arrangement or be displayed by themselves. We put an emphasis on a quality that will last for all of our products.
The products we sell are unique and we hope they will leave you feeling happy whenever you look at them.
Our vision is to have various artisans with unique skills working with us in the coming years. We plan to start a workshop in the Adelaide Hills where the general public will be able to learn from skilled artisans, participate and embrace their creative side. Each sale we make will go towards this vision. These artisans can work collaboratively to create beautiful pieces as well as conducting workshops of their chosen skill.
If you would like to find out more about our business, subscribe to our mailing list where we will be sending out updates. We look forward to going on the journey with you.
