Jewellery by Hand in the 21st Century
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
Go into the deep with London-based jewellery designer Alex Monroe. Discuss the craft of making jewellery by hand in the 21st century, as well as the inspiration behind his new ‘Beyond The Sea’ nautical collection launched at Liberty this year.
Strongly inspired by nature and British eccentricity, Alex Monroe has been designing and making jewellery for over 25 years. Growing up in the Suffolk countryside, since an early age Alex Monroe has had a great love for the natural world. Nature is a strong theme throughout his work and creations such as the bumble bee necklace have earned iconic status. Working with precious materials, his designs are elegant with a whimsical charm and the new nautical collection reflects this unmistakable style, with gold-plated ships, anchors and entwining ropes reminiscent of the seaside.
