Honey and Joy is an online store on Etsy.com that offers a variety of handmade greeting cards and treasure and kids’ gift boxes. The shop, started in 2016, is gaining steady popularity and received great feedback from the customers worldwide. Talking about a treasure box that Lauren Okagu ordered for her little daughter she says in her review, “Not only was it prettily wrapped up like a present, but there was an extra treasure box and beautiful cards, including one with a sweet note to my daughter. It was a magical experience for her and very much worth the short wait. She has already placed her most treasured items inside. Thank you both so much, big hugs!!”
Honey and Joy is the online shop of the family studio ‘Bodo Art’, Offenbach am Main, Germany. The shop is owned by husband and wife, Bodo and Zoya who take inspirations from Europe’s culture and monument heritage to design pieces of art in forms of treasure gift boxes for kids and teenagers, greeting cards and other products.
Using materials like pearls, lace, embroidery, beads, rhinestones, natural shells, velvet, beads and ornamented pearl papers they create beautiful art that makes the perfect gift for loved ones.
One of the bestselling and popular items in their shop are the pressed flower greeting cards that use dried flowers along with other semi-precious stones and craft material. They use the most beautiful dried flowers including lilies and roses as well as fabric flowers to decorate the birthday, anniversary and other cards. The cards come with beautifully embellished, colored envelopes to make the best impression of care and deep attitude.
Zoya is fascinated with creativity since her childhood and takes inspiration from anything that catches her eyes. She developed every product in her shop as if it were a fairy tale come alive. Her husband Bodo is a photographer and story teller and they both live in Germany.
All the items are packed creatively in colored, hand embellished cardboard boxes with pearls and silk ribbons before sending it to the customer so that receiving and opening the item is a pure delight. All the products can be seen on Honey and joy Etsy shop.
