It’s Friday Treat time! This week we’ve teamed up with Alex Monroe who are offering 5 lucky readers the chance to win a beautiful ‘Two Turtle Doves’ Necklace and a copy of Alex’s book Two Turtle Doves: A Memoir of Making Things.
The Hare with Amber Eyes meets Toast in this memoir of a life spent making things. Growing up in 1970s Suffolk in a crumbling giant of a house with wild gardens, Alex Monroe was left to wreak havoc by invention. Without visible parental influence, but with sisters to love him and brothers to fight for him, he made nature into his world. Creation became a compulsion, whether it was go-carts and guns, booby-traps, boats, bikes or scooters. And then, of course, it was jewellery. From full-out warfare waged against the local schoolboys to the most intricate designs for necklaces and earrings, Two Turtle Doves is about where we find our creativity, how we remember and why we make the things we do.
Alex Monroe grew up in rural Suffolk and showed a keen interest in art and design from an early age. Alex trained at Sir John Cass School of Art in Whitechapel. He set up his business in South London in 1986 and Alex Monroe Jewellery is now an iconic and internationally successful brand.
