- JEWELLERY CARE
Alex grew up in the countryside, in the wilds of Suffolk in a big old house surrounded by nature. He lived a life of adventure in rivers and forests, roaming freely in nature’s playground. After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex created his first collection in 1987 to critical acclaim. His intention was to produce excellent quality jewellery, which was originally designed, hand made and well priced. This was jewellery made to be worn and made to be loved and these values remain unchanged to this day.
Alex and his design team create all original Alex Monroe components by hand in sterling silver, allowing them to achieve our signature detail. When our jewellery goes into production, it is still hand-finished by skilled craftspeople in our London workshops and Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
As a brand inspired by nature we are committed to making sure our work has little impact on the environment and its people. We use recycled materials as much as possible including, gold, silver, paper and plastics. Alex’s creations are not designed with high-fashion seasons in mind; our pieces are special and made to last for decades to come.
The treasures of ancient and natural worlds have captivated Anat since girlhood and are her inspirations for Anouk creations still today. Moscow-born, Israel-raised and now Toronto-based, Anat solders myriad modern-day cultures with ancient mythology, crafting jewelry a Roman goddess might wear. Or an advertising manager. Or a mermaid.
Wherever Ayala Bar goes, her surroundings inspire her. For this creative artist, the universe is indeed in the details. Insights and ideas are collected from sights that, to the average person, may seem mundane.
Ayala's creations draw on over 25 years of experience as a costume jeweler. Today, Ayala is a mature designer, cognizant of the trends in the fashion world but always true to her inner vision. This precious integrity creates the radiance that is Ayala's own signature.
Ayala produces two collections a year in the Spring and Fall that are complimentary to current fashion trends and seasonal colors.
