Welcome to the hive!
My name is Liz and I'm the owner of Crystal Hive.
Crystals have always been a passion of mine since childhood, I have very fond memories of cave trips and visits to crystal shops that my mum could never get me out of..I had a nice little collection that I still have today.
It was only recently, in 2018, that I was drawn to start making bracelets, so I bought some strands of crystal chips and charms and off I went. I remember being so nervous to share my designs, but that soon faded away when you loved them and orders started to come in! I decided to give my little venture a name-Crystal Creations by Liz, and that is how it all began..
You may not know but I also work in a grammar school as a cover supervisor. When covid hit in 2019 I was at school less, so I had more time to put in to my business which has led to a massive expansion and rebrand in the summer of 2020 and Crystal Hive was born.
It took me a while to decide on a new name, but I got there and it's perfect, every part is meaningful to me. I love bees, I live in Manchester and they are my city's symbol. The hive part means bringing people together, which is important to me, it feels like a little club. The rose Quartz hexagon is the most frequent and efficient shape found in nature, bees use it to pack as much honey in to a space as possible! If you look at the bottom profile of a crystal tower, you'll see a hexagon! Armed with all this knowledge I went to my daughter who created my logo and I couldn't be happier with it!
So here we are in 2021, I offer a subscription service, attend regular events and have made improvements to my website; I'm feeling very excited about the future for Crystal Hive!
Thank you for being a part of the hive, it means so much to me!
