Absolutely wonderful rings! My husband and I purchased these for our anniversary. He is not a big "jewelry person," yet he loves this one! We have not taken them off since we received them. They stay on, stacked on top of our original wedding bands. Beautiful craftsmanship, excellent communication, and an all-around nice and sincere person to do business with. THANK YOU!

About

A huge letdown in Las Vegas led to a thunderbolt of inspiration that became Motel66.

I have been in the jewellery trade for about 15 years. As the industry changed and old traditional jewellery designs faded, I looked to my large collection of Victorian mourning jewellery I owned, my box of 'Lost Souls'. I found wonderful inspiration in my macabre Victorian collection. But it was modern Rock'n'Roll jewellery in a Renaissance style on a small scale via the store I worked in, making for musicians, bikers and wannabes that paid my bills. A chance meeting in The Rainbow Bar when I was in L.A. on vacation led to a frantic drive to Las Vegas the very same day to meet a designer/clothing giant who was intrigued by my cheeky email and ideas and designs of Rock'n'Roll jewellery to complement his clothing range, this would have led to my designs being in every Hard Rock cafe! Lets just say little ol' me and the giant designer had egos of a different nature. I excused myself to go to the bathroom and didn't return.

All the money I had left allowed me to get a room in downtown Las Vegas with the buzzing neon sign outside my window. Stood in the shower I went from 100% deflated and miserable to 100% inspiration as I looked out the window and I hit the street taking photos of the jaded neon of 1950's Vegas. These silver designs are heavy solid and hopefully capture a little bit of the dusty backroads of a fading American era, a time where you could check in to Motel66.

    I love Americana architecture. 1950's rockabilly diners, drive ins, cheap motels. The colours and the ambiance of the era inspired me to design this range of solid 925 silver pieces of jewellery.
