LUCAS JACK was created in 2006 by Nick Bartley, taking the name from his 3 year old nephew and best friend, Lucas Jack Bartley, he launched the brand with one very simple objective; to create consistently beautiful, wearable and affordable jewellery.
Nick went to Central St. Martin’s College of Art in London. But only once when he was passing by and needed directions. He is a self-taught jewellery designer and with each collection he painstakingly sets about creating jewellery that is of the highest quality and yet easily affordable; jewellery that stands out for its colour and uniqueness but is highly wearable; and jewellery that is so beautiful and tactile that you cant help but fall in love with it. Unfortunately he hasn’t been inspired by travels in Africa, he didn’t collect sea-shells as a child, and he doesn’t find inspiration in the way the branches of a tree move in the wind.
All Lucas Jack jewellery is plated with 18 Karat gold and then brushed to give it a rich satin finish. None of this gold is mined but is sourced from recycled scraps. No scraps are bought from Africa where mining conditions are often very poor.
