Meet Our Team

As Rustic and Main has grown over the years, we've been blessed to have some incredibly talented people join our team. Everyone here plays a big part in the success of our small business. While we may refer to them as "Team Rustic", they are all family.

Mike Yarbrough -  Founder

Mike is a creative spirit! He loves stories and creating new businesses and products that remind us all of the bigger picture of which we’re all a part. He was the first ring maker and designer of many of our rings, but now spends his time focusing on new product releases and marketing efforts. You can find out more about Mike at his other project Wolf & Iron.

Summer Yarbrough - 
Co-Founder

Summer has been a key part of Rustic and Main from the very start. While she is also a creative spirit, she brings a unique perspective on structure and organization to the business. She has a heart for the team members of Rustic as well as our customers and keeps tabs on everything from finances, marketing and customer service...but most importantly snacks. Got to keep those craftsmen happy!

Pippin -
Shop Dog 

Lord of the Rings fans will be familiar with her name! If you stop by the shop, there's a good chance you'll meet Pippin. She's basically Summer's dog, but loves everyone -- especially if you have a treat. Though she may be skittish towards hardwood floors, she is not hesitant to show how much she cares with her hugs.

Tyler -
Customer Service Lead

Tyler is a bag of surprises. He seems to be a mild mannered book and board game lover-- then BAM! you find out he also fights MMA. Most of the time you can find him working with a customer at the shop or reading a book when he manages to fit in a lunch. Tyler also has a side kick cat named Yoda, who is beloved for his doggish qualities. Fun Friend Fact: Tyler was recommended by Chelsie as Tyler is a frequent board game player at her home and surrogate uncle to her little boy.

Kassie - Ring Crafter

We wanted to list out all of the crazy, amazing and funny things Kassie does and brings to the shop, but we thought we'd just share this picture and let you get the idea! Kassie quit a corporate job to come make rings with us. She's a talented craftswoman, and also assists with our social media efforts.

Beasley - Ring Crafter

Beasley, a US Navy vet, came to us to fill in for one of our deployed teammate as Supply Sargent. We loved him so much we decided to keep him and he is now one of our ring craftsmen. Though he may look like a Samoan Thor, he has a big heart for his girls and his family. His description of his youth in Hawaii has inspired many of us to travel to Hawaii ourselves. Fun Friend Fact: Eric T. recommended Beasley to work here.

Zach - Ring Crafter

Zack spent several years serving as a marine before coming back home to Minnesota. He left his job in law enforcement to come and serve beside his friend and fellow marine Eric. He is experiencing a whole new life down south. As the 2nd youngest of six it was tough for him to leave his family, but he was relieved to step into such a family orientated environment. Zack and his dog Charlie are enjoying the warmer temperatures! Fun Friend Fact: Eric recommended Zack for the position.

Brad - Ring Crafter

Brad is North Carolina through and through. He grew up in Concord and his high school is right down the street from the shop. After playing football for Western Carolina he settled down with his wife Jamie and they have a daughter named Parker Raine. Both ladies are the loves of his life. Brad is a shoe fanatic too! Fun Friend Fact: Beasley and Eric T recommended Brad for the job!

Eric T. - Ring Crafter

A Marine Corp vet, Eric brings a lot of discipline and structure to his ring crafting, and as a result, produces some amazing rings. So amazing that we put him in charge of QC. He's always willing to take on a task, no matter what, and looks forward to working with our line of metal rings. He is very close to his mom and siblings, and loves to travel.

Phoebe - Ring Crafter

Phoebe has been with R&M for several years working as a ring wrapper and now as a crafter. When not at work, she enjoys catching up on politics and debating theology. Two of her biggest joys are attending home church, and spending time with her meerkat-like cat. Fun Family Fact: Jeffrey is her dad.

Jeffrey - Ring Crafter/Prod. Assistant

A ring maker with a serious passion (and talent) for drumming. Jeffrey was our first hire and probably the most patient student of ring crafting (because we were still figuring things out). Some fine rings have passed through his hands over the years. He's referred to as our "Shop Pop" not only for his time at Rustic, but also for the wisdom he brings. The wisdom and crafting combined helps in his role as Assistant Production Manager. Fun Family Fact: Phoebe is his daughter and Kevin his other daughter's husband.

Elisha - Ring Crafter

Tyler is a bag of surprises. He seems to be a mild mannered book and board game lover-- then BAM! you find out he also fights MMA. Most of the time you can find him working with a customer at the shop or reading a book when he manages to fit in a lunch. Tyler also has a side kick cat named Yoda, who is beloved for his doggish qualities. Fun Friend Fact: Tyler was recommended by Chelsie as Tyler is a frequent board game player at her home and surrogate uncle to her little boy.

Ricki - Shipping and Receiving Lead

Ricki runs the Shipping and Receiving Department of Rustic and Main. She is one of the original gang that endured working out of Mike and Summer's home before moving to our current location. Ricki has a big heart for serving, and being outside. She also is a beast at cycle class and can dance! Fun Family Fact: She is David's mom and her husband Tim guest stars at Rustic and Main with his OT skills.
