Engraved Shell Necklace
This poetic silver Shell Necklace was imagined when Alex Monroe took a late summer walk along Suffolk’s Aldeburgh Beach. It is engraved with the words ‘'I Must Go Down to the Sea Again, To the Lonely Sea and the Sky' by the poet John Mansfield.
About the Maker
Alex Monroe established his London studios in 1987 and his work now sells throughout Asia, Europe and America. Celebrity fans include Emma Watson, Sienna Miller, Carey Mulligan and Emilia Fox. Alex's love for gardening and the simple beauty of nature is apparent, with roses and wildflowers being recurrent motifs. His work takes a sentimental, tongue-in-cheek look at Englishness. Alex says about his work: "The most important thing is to maintain quality at all times. Although I am interested in fashion I hope that I am using a design language that defies time". He continues to make all of his jewellery on site at his London studio.
