“British jewellery designer Alex Monroe grew up in Suffolk surrounded by fields, rivers and the plants and creatures which inhabit them. He trained at Sir John Cass School of Art in London, and uses nature to inspire his whimsical, intricately beautiful jewellery.
Established in 1986, his core aspirations remain unchanged; to make great quality, wearable jewellery, which is originally designed and well priced.
Nature has always been Alex’s greatest inspiration. Whether from travels in Pakistan, walks along the hedgerows of Suffolk or even the Tuscan hills, his designs always remain inherently English. Alex always makes the original by hand in sterling silver, which gives his work its distinctive signature of such exquisite detail. He uses his skills to craft jewellery that is slightly quirky, sometimes cute, but always very feminine. The jewellery is both pretty and humorous, but consistently wearable.” Source – Alex Monroe website
We decided to stock Alex Monroe having seen his jewellery at the International Jewellery Fair in London and were drawn to his original ideas using naturally inspired designs. Since we have been selling his pieces, we have seen an increase in his popularity nationwide, partly due to his well made jewellery and his policy of using English jewellers to hand make and recreate his unique designs.
