All pieces are made using high quality materials and rare medals so the recipient is not just wearing or displaying their faith, but has a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
About the Artist
Artist Holly Block Klock believes our sweet Mary and all the Saints and Angels have the ability to intercede for us to God, in such a powerful way that miracles can happen.
Holly is a native of Lafayette, LA. She graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor in fashion apparel, design and merchandising with a minor in business. She worked in retail for seven years, beginning as an assistant to a jewelry designer and lead to merchandising and buying for several boutiques.
After getting married and having 3 children, the journey took her down a very different path in dentistry for over 8 years. During that time she always yearned to go back to what she truly loved to do, but in the meantime she made pieces as gifts for friends and family. In 2010 she joined Theresians International in the Live Oak District. As a Theresian, she grew in her faith even more than she ever had and in 2017, she hesitantly agreed to mentor a new group forming. During a meeting, she spoke on vocation. Vocation comes from the Latin word "vocare" which means "to call". It felt like a wave went over her on that day during that meeting. She knew without a shadow of a doubt it was time to listen to the call. She took a leap of faith, trusting in God's call, resigned from her job and went right into creating unique jewelry with different religious medals, mostly rare antique medals sourced worldwide.
Lovingly referred to as “Holly Bee” by friends and “Bee Bee” by her nieces, she chose to play on words with her favorite quote, “Be Still, and know that I am God”(Psalm 46:10) and name her business BeeStill. In addition, there is a lot of religious symbolism between the Honey Bee and Jesus. She found it appropriate to not only personalize the business but to incorporate so much meaning behind everything that is done. In particular, quatrefoils are used in most designs. Quatrefoils were used in ancient Christian art and architecture to represent the 4 evangelists—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. BeeStill is more than just jewelry. It is meaningful pieces that educate and inspire.
