“For nearly forty years, our family-run business has been making jewellery known for its craftsmanship and story telling. Citing influences from comic art, literature, music and nature, Nick’s work has led the way for fine jewellery featuring figurative detail and mechanized parts.
After graduating from Birmingham School of Jewellery in 1978, husband and wife team, Nick (the Brick) and Jean (the Bean) established their business from a small workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. After working for several years as a silversmith for the trade, Nick continued his love of miniaturisation to produce his first collection in the early 1990s and so the magical world of Nick Hubbard Jewellery began! Nick’s jewellery has since become highly collectible and can be easily identified as the original article by a small engraving of a ‘brick and bean’ on each piece.
Since losing our beloved Nick in 2013, we (the ‘Brick and Bean team’: wife Jean, daughters Philippa and Elizabeth and a wonderful team of talented jewellers who worked closely with Nick) have been dedicated to preserving and continuing his creative legacy. We continue to lovingly handcraft jewellery from our workshop in Staffordshire using traditional jewellery-making methods. Working with Nick’s drawings, designs and processes ensures that every piece is imbued with his distinctive style and skill that has set the standard for finely crafted, playful contemporary jewellery.”
