What is Fordite?
Fordite, also known as Motor Agate, is a unique automotive enamel material with an interesting history. Fordite doesn’t come from the earth like copper or silver; In fact, this material may be even be more rare than diamonds! It is created from over-spray of Vintage and Classic vehicles that were painted the old fashion way. These many layers were repeatedly baked in the bays and then removed when the paint bays were cleaned. When this technique of painting cars stopped, so did the production of Fordite, which is in limited supply!
They may not make it anymore, but for now you can buy this material in amazing and unique pendants while supplies last. Come check us out, and get your hands on some of the most exciting new jewelry items in the industry!

Sister Bees began their journey in Ludington Michigan as two best friends wanting to provide the very best for their family. The all natural skin care products are made with local beeswax and local honey. From their hives, as well as other local beekeepers, they have developed an all-natural skin care product line which includes the amazing benefits of beeswax. They look forward to bringing skin care products “from their hive to your home”.
The Sister Bees Lip Balm is made with all natural flavorings and ingredients including beeswax. It feels smooth going on and refreshes your lips for hours. Enjoy such flavors as Coffee Vanilla, Chai, Cherry Pie, Orange Vanilla, Apple Cider, Vanilla Brandy and more!
The Sister Bees Butter has the texture of butter and is made with all natural ingredients including beeswax. The Worker Bee Butter for rough overworked skin provides the same benefits, but with a manly scent. Use Bee Butter for Dry skin, Bug Bites, Cuts, Burns, Diaper Rash, Eczema, Make-Up Remover, Shiny Hair, Fine Lines, Puffy Eyes and Psoriasis. Beeswax is an excellent addition to cosmetic products for many reasons:
- When used in lotions and creams, beeswax creates a barrier which helps to seal moisture into the skin. This is especially beneficial in lip chap during the dry winter months.
- This barrier also helps to protect the skin from environmental toxins and irritants.
- Unlike petroleum jelly, which is used in a large variety of beauty products, beeswax will not “suffocate” the skin, but rather, allow it to breathe while still providing a protective barrier.
- Beeswax helps to thicken homemade cosmetics and lotions because it is solid at room temperature and has a relatively high melting point of 147 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Beeswax has Vitamin A, which improves hydration to the skin and promotes cell regeneration.
- Beeswax helps heal minor skin cuts, abrasions, scrapes and wounds.
Sister Bees All Natural Bee’s Beard Balm provides great moisture for men’s beards and gives it a slight hold. It is made of all natural ingredients including beeswax, Shea butter, olive oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, frankincense, tea tree, carrot and cedar wood essential oils.
Not leaving our fine furry friends out, the Sister Bees All Natural Paw Putty is an amazing paw wax that soothes, protects, heals and nourishes your pets paws and snout. This beeswax paw wax helps to heal dry, cracked paws that have been damaged by the elements.
Because this Beeswax Butter is made with all natural ingredients and no preservatives, we recommend storing the all natural butter in a cool place to prevent melting. For best results, use product within six months of purchase.

Business owner Jessica VanderVere believes Bee Joyful isn’t just a business name, it’s a mindset, a way of thinking, and a way of living at peace.
Jessica was raised in a cabin deep in the forest near Allegan, Michigan. Her parents were big believers in being earth-friendly, self-sufficient, and living simply, so her roots in sustainability runs deep.
They lived their lives “off the grid,” meaning no electricity and no running water. Jessica learned a lot about being resourceful. When you grow up without modern amenities, you discover your true creativity – something she is thankful has stuck with her through the years.
Fast forward to today. As a single mom, raising five children, she no longer lives in a cabin in the woods. She does have electricity, but the same lessons about creativity that she learned from a simple childhood lives on. Sustainability, being Earth-friendly, leaving things better than how you found them, are all lessons she is teaching her children who are active participants in the Bee Joyful Shop.
Jessica may not wear her faith on her sleeve, but she does take words of encouragement from the Bible. One verse that has resonated in her life over and over that she thinks about often is Romans 12:12: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.” To Jessica, that verse encourages us to always be joyful, no matter your situation. “Bee Joyful” isn’t just a business name, it’s a mindset, a way of thinking, and a way of living at peace.
The Bee Joyful Shop started as a simple idea. Creating and using sustainable, Earth-friendly materials to store food, instead of harmful plastic wraps, isn’t new. In fact, Jessica’s grandmother used beeswax wraps as a way of sealing food long before plastic wrap was invented. Jessica thought that what would be a good thing for her family and may be something her friends and neighbors would want to use too. After a little research, a few notes, and a trip to the fabric store, Jessica started made her first food wraps. They worked just like she thought they would! Soon after, she opened her Bee Joyful Shop not knowing if anyone would be interested in buying them. Four months later, Bee Joyful Shop proudly sources beeswax from a local, generational beekeeper, making each piece by hand, using fabrics made in the USA. They strive to keep packaging material to a minimum, using 100% recycled materials. Their goal is to be a zero waste business.
From Bee Joy Shop’s simple beginnings, their wraps are sold all over the world. The three pack combo Bubbly Bee pattern are best sellers. We also take special orders. If you have a theme or pattern in mind, let us know and Bee Joy will do their best to create it just for you. We also do bulk orders with special pricing for stores.
The Bee Joyful Shop is proud to be a family business, helping people make Earth-friendly, sustainable choices, founded on the principle of being joyful in your circumstances.

The Kooty Key is the brain child of Ken Kolb of Clinton Township Michigan. Ken is a champion bodybuilder and an auto parts salesperson. Since he was on the road most of the day he routinely accessed public restrooms, restaurants, banks, stores, etc. Over the years he noticed how air blowers in restrooms were becoming more prevalent do to the focus on ecology. Restrooms that have air blowers usually do not supply paper toweling as an alternative drying method. In the past many people concerned with proper hygiene would dry their hands with the paper towel and then use it to grab the door handle of the restroom upon exiting. One day—during the peak of the flu season he was standing at the sink washing his hands, watching people use the facilities and then immediately exit the restroom without hand washing or cleanup of any kind. He thought about how often he had struggled to find a method of grabbing the handle upon his exit without re-contaminating himself with the millions of germs residing on the door handle. At that moment as he reached for his car keys a thought was born — the Kooty Key!
The Kooty Key comes equipped with an opening to attach to a key ring, belt loop, retractable badge, or add a carbine clip and hang it from your purse. The Kooty Key is an easy to use hands-free, germ-free utility tool!
