Revv'd up Handmade Sterling Silver Jewelry for the Hot Rod Car Enthusiast.

Tell us about your business.

We design and manufacture custom hot rod jewelry. Most of our designs are designed with vintage automobiles incorporated into them. We take the front end or "grille" of classic cars and put them onto rings and bracelets. We design and manufacture all of our pieces ourselves. Most of our jewelry is produced in Sterling Silver and White Bronze. Occasionally we get orders for gold an platinum. All of our jewelry is created by using the lost wax casting method. We carve our designs in wax then cast our designs in metal. We also mold our designs and create multiple quantities and sizes by wax injecting our molds. We also create custom wedding rings and other custom designs for gear heads and auto enthusiasts.

What makes your business stand out?

We cater to the Vintage Car Niche
