Meet your new favorite photo frame - now available on our website!

by Shopify API May 29, 2014

Simple. Beautiful. Functional. Hand-crafted. Modern. These are some of our favorite qualities at Queen Bee, which is why we love Plywerk’s Maggie Frames - you can find them at our Portland shop & on our website too. Read on to learn more about this kindred Portland business.

Plywerk began when Portland-based photojournalist Kim Oanh Nguyen-van Zoen and her husband Kjell van Zoen mounted her photograph on a piece of discarded plywood. Since then, they’ve moved their basement workshop into a riverside industrial space just down the road from Queen Bee. Much like Queen Bee Creations, these clever Plywerk frames are handmade by real humans and their materials are sourced from local suppliers with a similar business ethos. Maggie frames are made from sustainably harvested bamboo.

We are excited to offer Plywerk photo frames on our website! Because the photo floats on the surface of the frame, you can swap out your memories whenever the mood strikes. Crazy-strong neodymium magnets and ball-bearings hold your photos in place on beautiful, hand-sanded bamboo. Easily mount the frame to a wall or use the bamboo stand that slots into back keyholes to prop your favorite photos on your desk or table.
These frames make a thoughtful gift to newlyweds, new parents, grandparents - or anyone, really.
Available in 2 sizes - find them on our website HERE.
