Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Pueng Kunpiya Ragon, owner, designer, maker and everything else at Abeille Handmade Jewelry. I was born and raised in southern Thailand and currently resides on the beautiful island of Koh Tao with my husband and our 6 year old boy. I started my silversmith journey in May 2017. My love toward the ocean is easily seen in every piece I have made.
What’s the best thing about Abeille Handmade Jewelry?
Abeille Handmade Jewelry is my happy place where I can use my creativity to make a different in everyday life to show love through my craft. One of many of my favorite thing though out this journey is to see my customer faces light up when they put on my jewelries. To know that what I have created can brighten up their day even just a little is the best feeling ever.
What’s coming up that we should be excited about?
I am currently working on lunching new jewelry collection and I would love to lunch my official website this year.
What are you most proud of?
I have spent most of my adult life as an oceanic scuba diver. It was then that I have come to learn the sense of responsibility and concern for oceanic awareness and impact. I donate a portion of the profits from Ocean Fantasy Collection to aid in local reef conservation and restoration programs, the topic that I am passionate about since my professional scuba diver days. To be able to give back to my local community is very important to me. It gave me an extra purpose to make a change through what I do daily.
Any advice for anyone starting their own business?
Share your love of your business, it is super contagious. When you love what you do it is much easier to keep it fresh, exciting and everyone will notice that too. Your mind set is everything stay positive, set a realistic goal it definitely helps me to stay right on the track. Lastly make sure to rest it is very important to keep the so call “burn out” under control. No one what to fall out of love from their business right?
