I have been wanting to write a post about Alex Monroe (jewellery designer) for a while and now I think it is the right time as I have just been given the first piece of his jewellery that I have ever owned in the form of an engagement ring. (!!:))
I have loved this jewellery designer for years because he creates each of his pieces based on something from nature. I have always been a nature baby and spent my childhood playing outside in gardens and parks. There is such beauty in the outdoors like the rainbow shine on the back of a beetle shell or the tiny velvety inside of pea pod and hundreds of other things that you don't see until you look.
Alex Monroe takes unconventional things like bumblebees and sticks of asparagus and casts them in silver and gold to create some really gorgeous jewellery. I pretty much want to buy everything on his website but it hasn't quite been in my price bracket until now....
I love this ring because aquamarine has always been one of my favourite stones. It reminds me of a tiny perfect drop of rain and I like that it literally seems like water in the form of a jewel. I am a huge fan of gold jewellery and never really wear silver so this band is perfect and you have to look really closely to see the secret texturing of the metal in the style of wood bark.
Here are some of my favourite necklaces from the collection. This one is a bunch of asparagus, then a little sailing ship and finally a pea pod (my favourite)
I also really like these two rings- the craftmanship is so delicate on the bottom one!
