I'm Nick Bartley, founder of Lucas Jack Jewellery. Here at Lucas Jack we're all very excited to be working with QVC.
It's fantastic to have a new way in which we can make our jewellery available to the British public, and so far we have been very impressed with the standards set by QVC and by the quality of the products they sell. We're delighted to be a part of that and hope that this is the start of a long relationship!
I set up Lucas Jack in 2006 with a very clear vision – to offer sleek, sophisticated and fashion-forward jewellery with a value for money ethos. It was important to me that all Lucas Jack jewellery was designed to be worn, to be bought and to be enjoyed, and so far the combination of a luxurious and directional style together with an affordable price point has been a winning formula.
As is the case with most men, they would be nowhere without the support of their wife behind them! This is certainly the case with me, as my wife Mena is heavily involved with creating the look and feel of the jewellery. Her sense of fashion and fun has heavily influenced my designs, and I'm happy to say she will even be presenting the jewellery during our launch show on Monday 28th February. And I don't even have to pay her!!
At Lucas Jack we have a strong moral and ethical sense as well, and all our jewellery is plated with 18 carat recycled gold scraps; we don't use any gold which is mined and we don't purchase scraps from Africa where mining conditions are often poor. We also make regular donations to a children's charity in Bangkok; we're involved in sponsoring street children and orphans which allows them to receive care, housing and education.
For our launch show we've selected a range of pretty pastel pieces, including minimalistic cuffs, statement rings and earrings, stylish necklaces and sleek bangles. All are chic, colourful and endlessly wearable, and perfect for the new spring season.
My top three picks would have to be the Ribbed Half Moon Hoop Earrings in either Turquoise or Jet Black resin (as worn by Cheryl Cole during The X Factor live show), the large statement Smooth Square Domed Ring in a choice of Lilac or Jet Black resin, and the fab Black Faceted Dome Resin Cuff with the choice of a Pink or Gold resin stone. Wear any of these and be sure to never go unnoticed again!
Hope you can join Mena for the show, and let us know what you think of our jewellery – we'd love to hear from you!
All the best,
Tune in for the Lucas Jack Fashion Jewellery premiere at 7pm on Monday 28th February
