Alex Monroe in Bath

We’re pleased to announce a lovely art event in May to coincide with Bath in Fashion.

The craftsman responsible for all those exquisite Hummingbird pieces, jewellery designer Alex Monroe has been designing and making jewellery for over 25 years. Strongly inspired by nature and British eccentricity, Alex’s jewellery is elegant with a whimsical charm that makes it very much his own.

Growing up in 1970s Suffolk in a crumbling giant of a house with wild, tangled gardens, Alex Monroe was left to wreak havoc by invention. His “wild childhood”, “melting down piano keys into cross bolts and 50ps for cigarette machines” led to his career creating bespoke jewellery and pieces for high-end brands such as Coco De Mer and the V&A. Two Turtle Doves is his story of a life spent making things.
