I love wood and I love my wife (not in that order). That is how I arrived at creating wooden jewelry. My wife loves interesting jewelry so I made snowflake earrings as Christmas presents this past year and the response was gratifying and motivating. That motivation resulted in the line of 2Puggles earrings I’ve created.
I live in Greensboro, NC with my wife and our two puggles Roxie and Marty Feldman. I teach marketing at Eastern Alamance High School in Mebane, NC. Part of the inspiration for 2Puggles jewelry and woodworking is to share the experience of starting a small business from the spark of an idea to the work and considerations necessary to be successful. I share my experiences daily with my students. It creates improved engagement and has made me a better teacher.
Creating from wood is a rewarding challenge. I am fascinated by the variety of woods and by the variety of wood grain and color within a given wood. It’s been a fun adventure selecting wood and turning that wood into something that is appreciated. I enjoy the experience of sharing my one of a kind wood creations and I hope you enjoy them as well!
