QUErful honey

Honey is one of Malta’s natural resources. It keeps for many centuries, as was proven recently in an archaeological find in Egypt where nectar dating back to the time of the pharaohs was recovered from a tomb. The ancient Egyptians even used it as a type currency for the payment of taxes; like the golden liquid that it is.

As a neighboring Mediterranean country with an ancient history of civilization, it is quite understandable that Malta has long been a haven for honey producing bees. The bees of Malta are mostly attracted to thyme (which is known as sagħtar in Maltese) but they are also known to feed on other flowering plants, of course.

The honeycombs in particular are a work of art in their own right. It’s as if the bees are nature’s own little architects. They are capable of naturally designing very intricate patters that work really well for cultivating the honey they gather. Natural honeycombs have also been emulated in the creation of artificial beehives that are so perfect to make the mood necklaces as a master piece. It is indeed these natural habitats for honey bees that have directly inspired the hand-made exclusive necklaces in the QUE line of body ornaments.

Show your deep appreciation for this ancient culture by donning a unique contemporary touch in the Honeycomb collection from the QUE apiary.

Happy birthday to us!

It’s been quite a momentous week at the QUE Design Studio. This is mostly because we have been celebrating the first year since the studio was established on St Edward Street in Qormi.

We started the week by landing a rather prestigious design commission for an event taking place during the CHOGM 2015. (More about this in the coming weeks.) We then proceeded to introduce a new line for sale through the QUE.com.mt website; Honeycomb was previously featured in our portfolio but you can now also buy these body ornaments online. And to top it off Bernice baked a lovely gluten-free QUErot cake to mark the occasion.

To round off the week rather nicely, we’re also raising a glass to the singers and musicians you voted as your top pick in the MMI 2014 Listeners’ Picks poll by Toni Sant, which we also supported. The results were announced on Saturday evening and so we congratulate Ruth Abela (TroffaHamra y los mechones), Dana McKeon, Rachel Fabri, and the band Footprints.

So now on to our second year at the QUE Design Studio. If the first year is anything to go by, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a very exciting time for us, we hope you share in our thrills whenever the spirit moves you. We’re always just a click or two away at QUE.com.mt.
