"I love the process of making jewellery. I always have. I love the tools, the workshop, the highs and lows... and when you really love something it's a pleasure to share it with others. Jewellery School is really just a way of sharing the fun! And when you teach other people you always get back so much more than you give. It's a real privilege and I can’t wait to get started.”

About Jewellery School

It’s been in the works for a while as a top secret project…and we are now delighted to welcome you to the Alex Monroe Jewellery School, a series of jewellery-making experiences conducted by Alex and our expert team of craftspeople in our Bermondsey Workshop.

From the traditional craftsmanship skills of shaping, soldering and texturing to experimenting with design and composition, each class we do will be a day full of hands on fun.

"It was such a big treat to spend a day learning a new craft in such an inspiring setting!

I haven't stopped buzzing since I left on Saturday – it's sparked my making mojo at last!"

About the Maker

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's Inspiration

Alex’s love for the natural world continues to provide a key source of inspiration…while a fondness for the eccentricities of Englishness provides a touch of humour and nostalgia.  All of Alex's collections begin life as a flickers of ideas, captured in his trusty sketchbook.

Above all though, it's the journey a piece of jewellery goes on after it's left our workshop and the stories we hear from generations of wearers, that inspires Alex to keep pushing his craft 30 years on.
