If there’s one area I feel I know quite a lot about, it’s jewellery and accessories. I spent over three years working in PR & Marketing for a successful High Street jewellery retailer, therefore many a day have I spent researching into the world of jewellery and accessory designers. I’m lucky to have met such talented jewellers during my days in the jewellery industry, and I do miss working with such a lovely product everyday.
However, although I have many loves, one of my very favourite jewellery designers is Alex Monroe. I adore fine, pretty jewellery, therefore his collections of delicate pendant chains are an absolute dream. Good news for other Alex Monrow fans out there – the popular designer has launched the book ‘Two Turtle Doves – A Memoir Of Making Things’ with Bloomsbury Books,
The book is a beautiful journey focusing on Alex Monroe and his passion of making things. Two Turtle Doves traces the intimate adventure of how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite piece of jewellery. It is based on where we find our creativity, how we remember and why we make the things we do. Take a look at some reviews of this book, and read a little more about the story here. I am fascinated with his love for gathering inspiration from the great outdoors and nature, creating the basis of his collections built upon the sweetest designed bumblebees, hummingbirds, flowers and butterflies.
To celebrate this fantastic little book, I am giving away x10 copies to x10 of my readers! All you have to do is head over to Twitter and retweet my tweet which is an entry to win, with myself and @BloomsburyBooks
It’s the perfect book if you love the art of designing, making things, and the lovely world of jewellery, but it’s also the nicest little gift to give to someone too. Good luck!
