Wine-Marked Maker Glass Products

Wine-Marked Maker Hand-etched Glassware and Décor

Wine-Marked Maker began locally in the Bennetts Creek area of Suffolk where I have been located with my family for over 20 years. I began designing digital art and by chance someone mentioned one of my designs would look really great on a glass. That quickly turned into designing for glassware and teaching my self how to make my designs transferable to glass by hand etching every single piece. I design things I love and am constantly working on new and seasonal art. The glass I work with ranges from everyday glassware to glass art pieces that can be featured in your home or business. In additon to designing for myself, I have begun to work with individuals and businesses for special occasions, events, and a wide variety of personal gift ideas.

Breezy Hill Meadworks Breezy Hill

Originally established in 2019, we’re a farm meadery located in Smithfield, VA. We’re considered a “farm meadery” because we produce and harvest at least 51% of the honey from our own hives to make our meads. Our hives are strategically placed throughout Isle of Wight County based upon the winds and what nectar sources are located nearby. Farmers like to have our hives on their properties because having bees nearby to germinate the crops can almost double the yield of crops produced. This kind of makes it a symbolic relationship, as we get nectar collected from crops and plants on our property (which ultimately becomes honey) and they get more crops. We also use beehives byproducts, such as beeswax, burr bomb, etc. to make other products such as candles and soaps.
