Taking my decades of time plus the talent acquired from building show winning hot rods and motorcycles
and race & championship winning race cars and now applying that to the fine detail fabrication of jewelry.
All starting at age of 14 with my first purchase of a 57 Chevy in 1963 and continues on today. Never had
a lot of money to just go buy some fancy parts so had to do a lot of "making it myself" and
wouldn't have had it any other way.
Let us design something together that I can fabricate for you !!!!
"Made In USA"

Examples of my decades building show winning street rods and motorcycles
and race winning race cars .............
