Jean Hubbard

jean hubbard (a.k.a. Boss Bean) v.v.g.s.o.h, she makes us laugh (a lot!)


Have a look at Bean's charms in our online shop!!!

It had never crossed Jeans mind to become a jeweller when she was younger. These are just a few of the careers she considered: circus performer, ventriloquist, ice skater, Mrs Elvis Presley, Mrs Scott Walker and Mrs Captain Scarlet. When Jean is not at the bench she can be found in a corner filling in the Saturdays Independent Sudoku puzzle.
