    The custom sign Nicky created for a friend's birthday present is absolutely fantastic! Nicky came up with a bright, colourful design based on my budget and her communication throughout the process was first class. The item was very well packaged and arrived quickly. Nicky is really talented and translated my requirements into a beautiful and fun piece. I can't recommend her highly enough!

    Agreed the design. Delivered looking exactly as expected, well packaged. Hanging instructions clear. Really great!

    I’m not particularly creative so I approached Nicky with only a very vague idea of what I was after. I really appreciated Nicky’s help and advice in turning this vague idea into something stylish and unique and a perfect retirement gift for a colleague. The sign itself arrived promptly and is fantastic quality. My colleague will adore it.

    Really couldn’t recommend the seller more highly, thank you Nicky!

Handcrafted with time and care.

Nicky Adkins Handmade is an accumulation of many years of people telling me that I should sell what I make. Yes folks, it's all your fault.

My shop is very much a cottage industry, with all items handmade in our lovely little cottage in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
