The brand was founded by Hedi Sersoub, a long-time lover of classic cars, who’s efforts have resulted in the creation in the form of bracelets that are strikingly aesthetic. These bracelets are made of handcrafted, miniature 14K gold or sterling silver steering wheels and silk chords that embody the inexplicable beauty of cars. Hedi grew up around classic cars and enjoyed watching his father fix cars and tackle issues that arose, thus spending a great deal of time in their garage. It is no surprise that today, he enjoys driving a variety of cars, from pick-ups to sports and vintage cars although the classics hold a special place in his heart, stirs his emotions and reminds him of how beauty can be created.
