  • Goldcrests!

    Hey all!  It’s been a while since I last blogged, so I thought it was about time I updated you with what’s been happening at AMHQ.

    As you all know, Alex is a super keen nature lover and takes his inspiration directly from the gardens and hedgerows around the UK.  A few weeks ago, Liz Haresnape sent us this wonderful image of a tiny Goldcrest that landed in her parents garden.  Brian and Janet Haresnape found this amazing creature after it bumped its’ head on their window.  Temporarily stunned, they were able to cradle it before it flew off on it’s journey!

    You can see where our Alex Monroe Goldcrest gets it’s cute rounded tummy from!

    Nicky Ranger has also been in touch, to let us know about the decline of Goldcrests around the UK (down 56%).  If you’re interested in finding out more about wild birds in your area then you should definitely check out the British Trust for Ornithology.  If any of you have cute snaps of animals or insects that Alex has used as inspiration, then please send them to us.  You can e-mail them to me on info@alexmonroe.com

    Oh, and I have to share these new photo’s with you – taken this morning, just because I had to!

    We’ve been busy making lots of these stunning Posy Bangles, don’t they look gorgeous stacked up together?!!  It’s making me want ALL of them :)

    Best,
