Tracey-Renee Hubbard founded Scotchbonnet! fueled by her passion for making cheerful culturally infused items. She is a multifaceted designer who believes that accessories should be fun conversation starters. As a self-taught jewelry designer, Tracey-Renee started making earrings for herself as a hobby. Her hobby blossomed into a business as she began receiving requests to make jewelry from family members, friends, co-workers, and even complete strangers. Bolstered by her academic background and professional experiences, Tracey-Renee took her creative pursuits to a new level by launching an online boutique and branding her accessories under the aptly spicy moniker Scotchbonnet! Named after the distinctively potent Caribbean pepper, Scotchbonnet! accessories are known for vibrant hues, bold shapes and eye-catching patterns. The brand’s founder, Tracey-Renee Hubbard, is equally influenced by the flashiness of 90’s hip hop culture and the understated simplicity of modern luxury labels. She also has a special place in her heart for Caribbean culture and a deep respect for artisan crafts, particularly those created throughout the African Diaspora. Scotchbonnet! accessories are infused with all these elements to spice up any outfit with a potent pop of color.
