After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex Monroe created his first collection in 1987 to critical acclaim. His intention was to produce excellent quality jewelry, which was originally designed, hand made and well priced. This was jewelry made to be worn and made to be loved and these values remain unchanged to this day. Alex’s love for the natural world continues to provide a key source of inspiration…while a fondness for the eccentricities of Englishness provides a touch of humour and nostalgia. All of Alex's collections begin life as flickers of ideas, captured in his trusty sketchbook.
