    As usual life at AM HQ is non-stop!  Alex is currently pedaling away on his epic voyage from Land’s End to John O’Groats whilst Emma is taking a well deserved break in sunny Spain…..

    But I don’t mind because this weekend I will be heading to the Seaside myself!!!

    Our next fabulous Trunk Show Event will be hitting Silverado’s gorgeous Flagship Store in the heart of Brighton this Saturday 10th July!!!

    The event will not only allow you to have a sneeky peek at our latest collection ‘The Peacock and The Crow’ but most importantly a chance to grab yourselves an exciting ‘one-off’ piece from our exclusive Trunk Show Collection.

    Here is a little teaser of some of the pieces we will be taking along……….

    Ooh Argh Captain!

    Remember, each Trunk Show piece is a complete ‘one-off’ so when they are gone, they’re gone!!

    And if there is something that catches your eye, you not only get the chance to win a cute Gold Baby Bee Necklace but walk away with a fantastic goody bag full of treats!!

    Come along to 31 Bond Street, Brighton. I will be there helping out so please come and join me for a glass of champagne and a delicious cupcake or two……!

    Look forward to seeing you there!

    I had to show you this….
    I share an allotment in Dulwich and I popped in after work on Friday, with my youngest Libby. She always wants to come along and help. Libby had her Sylvanians and I was going to dig a bed or two… But the bee lady arrived! I knew someone kept bees in the woods behind us, but I had never met her. Anyway, her name is Karin and she’s lovely! Even though the light was fading she spent ages with us. She found a couple of bee-suit things and taught us all about what she was doing and let Libby help and even let us taste the honey. As you know I’m really fond of bees and they’re having a really tough time at the moment. She said she might let us help more in the spring! She was the loveliest most generous person you could meet. Made us sooo happy. Libby absolutely loved it. Thanks Karin!

  • New Stockists and Deliveries…..


    We’ve all been so busy recently there hasn’t been much time to update you on where you can get you hands on the jewellery, so here we go!

    Excitingly, Alex Monroe pieces are going to be much more readily available around the UK thanks to John Lewis….we have launched with everyone’s favourite department store in four locations, which means that our jewellery is now available in Edinburgh, Cardiff, Cheadle and Bluewater.

    John Lewis are updating their image, and it looks like they’re really going to town….check out the Bluewater jewellery department below:

    Of course, we still love selling to cute little boutiques too, fans in the West Country should head to Qetty Bang Bang, who recently opened in Tetbury – I can’t wait to visit when I’m back visiting my Mum & Dad!

    Another new stockist is The Hambledon Gallery in Blandford, Dorset. We already sell to The Hambledon in Winchester, but the Gallery is the ‘Mother’ shop – both look like they have a gorgeous range of products – and I’m not just talking about Alex Monroe!!

    But just to update you, other deliveries we’ve made in the last few weeks are, in London: Charles Fish, EcOne, Matches and Mitsukoshi.

    And around the UK: Jason Charles, Pearl & Queenie and Ruby & Tallulah.

    Overseas, we’ve covered quite a few continents: Masscob in Spain….Cord Three, Lisette and Tomorrowland in Japan….Herta and Kit of Elsinore in Sweden….Syrup, Quincy and mico-mico.com in Australia….and, last but not least Creme in Bahrain.

    For customers in desperate need of a Bumblebee, head to Fenwick or Fortnum & Mason in London, Silverado in Brighton and Chapmans in Durham.  Better be quick though, we’ve only sent them in the last couple of days and they never last long!!

    For further details on any of the shops mentioned, just check our ‘Stockists’ page.

    Bye for now, Emma x
