Nick Hubbard Jewellery

Staffordshire, UK

Nick Hubbard created his first jewellery collection back in 1996, taking inspiration from his love of miniaturisation. A tall, quiet and gentle man with a warmth and compassion that radiated on to everyone around him, Nick sadly passed away in 2013. However his devoted wife, Jean, and his two daughters, Philippa and Elizabeth, have continued the business in honour of their beloved Nick using his sketchbooks full of designs, ideas and drawings as their jewellery inspiration. Today, Nick’s charming and intricate designs are handcrafted in a converted old bakery overlooking the Staffordshire countryside.
