Nick Hazel, the designer behind Nikolas Alan Jewelers located in the former Harrison Jewelers Lakeway location as of November 2021. Robert Harrison retired in 2021 and asked Nick to buy his business. With 25 years under Nick's carreer already it was a natural progression to own and operate the full retail store operations. Along with his many years of designing and making high end jewelry the stage is set to make great quality jewelry for the local community. Nick started his jewelry career more than 25 years ago as a Geologist, a Gemologist and a Jeweler. As a Geologist, Nick was inspired at an early age with an interest in rocks and minerals, he spent many hours searching and collecting crystals and colorful stones, gaining a passion for all the precious material that he could pull directly from the earth. In conjunction, he always felt the need to work with his hands to create and invent new things. The two came together in college as he stumbled onto a course in Geology specifically about gems and minerals that included hands on stone cutting. His passion kept him cutting stones and practicing Geology and Gemology until he made the leap to complete his path by attending Jewelry school, embarking on his journey making beautiful jewelry.
Traveling around Europe and different countries around the world with his wife Lee of 25 years, an Artist and old world oil painter, he was inspired by the history and architecture, landscapes and crystal formations of nature, and by the unique patterns, colors and textures that define other cultures, often using materials and minerals from his travels to include in specific designs.
After years of designing and manufacturing for others he finally realized his dream of creating his own designer jewelry which can be found through out the store.
Nick Hazel resides in Lakeway, Texas where he is the owner and operator of his first brick and morter location in Lakeway Texas creating special custom design bridal engagement rings, gemstone rings, fine jewelry and pretty much anything you can dream up!
