  • Star spangled update!

    Leave a Comment

    Lots going on here at AMHQ as always, we have our third ‘An Evening with….’ event tonight and last weekend saw something of a roadblock at our bi-annual Iliffe Yard sample sale!

    Check out that queue.....!

    Some crazy Twitter action had led to a much bigger turnout than we expected, so thank you to everyone who came, and for your patience.

    We often get asked if we can tell people what will be in the sale, or if customers can purchase over the telephone, or even if we can do the sale on-line…..  We like to pride ourselves on being a ‘yes’ kinda company, but unfortunately the answer to all of those questions is no!!

    Firstly, the pieces are sorted out by different members of the team, so we don’t always know exactly what will be in there…plus we like to remain a little bit mysterious!

    Our strict quality control means that we end up with a quantity of pieces that wee deem to be ‘second’ quality, and this is the bulk of what is sold at our sample sale. Therefore the pieces have to be strictly sold-as-seen, so that customers are fully aware of what they are purchasing.  This of course would not work with mail order or on-line.

    The next sale will be in December, so keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) for details.

    Back in May, we spotted Louise Redknapp wearing our Black Chrysanthemum Stud Earrings to complete her very glamorous BAFTAs look:

    And here’s a close up from Louise’s personal Twitter account….

    We love an under-stated touch of glamour….

    And spotted again! Louise wears some small Lily Leaf Stud Earrings from our ‘Summer’s Embrace’ collection in the Wild About Beauty ‘Safari Nights’ campaign. These are not available on our website, so please call our boutique with any enquiries:  o20 3117 0640

    From the other side of the pond, the very cute Australian tv presenter Faustina Agolley has been wearing lots of our pieces on the Australian version of The Voice…..here’s a lovely snap from her Instagram account.

    Faustina is also wearing earrings from our ‘Summer’s Embrace’ collection – the Large Curled Lily Leaf Stud Earrings.  Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what a piece of jewellery will look like when it is worn just from a product shot, and these earrings really come alive when they are worn – Faustina looks amazing in them!

    And finally, we love this beautiful shot from the lovely Oh Comely magazine…..

    'Wear this Silver Key Lightly' - they even seem to have named the whole shoot after our bracelet!

    This piece is our Extra Fine Key Bracelet.

    As always, let us know if you spot Alex Monroe jewellery out and about, in a magazine, or on a celeb – it’s always great to hear from you!

  • Two dates for the diary – Pullens Open Studios & Primrose Hill Designer Sale

    Leave a Comment

    That time of year has come around again for our open studio sale over at Pullens Yards (our studio is located at number 9a Illife Yard). Our summer open studio sale saw people queuing outside before the we had even opened and we are pretty sure it will be super busy again! The studio will be open this Friday (30th Nov) from 6.30pm till 9pm, Saturday 1st December 11am – 6pm and Sunday 2nd December 11am till 6pm.

     

    Now here’s the formal part:

    We accept CASH and card (expect for AMEX). There will be only one card machine on site and it will be quite busy, so it maybe worth visiting a cash machine beforehand to avoid queuing!

    We do not accept gift vouchers. All sales are none refundable.

    If you cannot make the Pullens Yards open studio sale, fear not, we have another on the 8th December from 10am till 6pm at the Primrose Hill Designer Sale located at St Mary-the-Virgin, Elsworthy Rd, Primrose Hill, London, NW3 3DJ.

     

    We hope to see you there!

    We were really pleased when Silverado told us about their new shop in Lewes – they’ve been trying to buy a property there for ages, but it looks well worth the wait!

    Look at the lovely collection of hand mirrors on the wall!

    So…..Susie will be heading down on Saturday the 12th of June for a Trunk Show!  As usual there will be lots of one-offs, plus a raffle prize, and yes, they will have a delivery of ‘Peacock and the Crow’ too!

    On Saturday the 10th of July we will be back down in Sussex to visit Silverado’s Brighton store with a Trunk Show – lots of dates for your diaries!

    So there is a LOT of jewellery being made at the moment, lots of parcels to pack, emails to answer…..I need a lie down just thinking about it!

    But it’s all going to be lots of fun so come and say hello!
