World-famous jewellery designer Alex Monroe reveals how he grew from being a small, curious boy in the Suffolk coutryside to the owner of one of the most successful and iconic jewellery brands. Monroe grew up in the 1970s in a giant, crumbling house without visible parental influence but with sisters and brothers to love him and look out for him. Creativity became a compulsion for him, whether he was designing go-carts, crossbows, guns, boats, bikes or scooters. In Two Turtle Doves, he traces how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite piece of jewellery.

Monroe trained at Sir John Cass School of Art in Whitechapel. He set up his business, Alex Monroe Jewellery, in London in 1986. His work is strongly inspired by nature and British eccentricity.
