Since an early age, Alex has always had a great love for the natural world. Growing up in the Suffolk countryside, he was surrounded by all manner of plants and animals. From this, nature has become a strong theme throughout his work. He has the wonderful ability to take precious metals and imbue them with the attributes of delicate objects such as light and floaty feathers, dainty flowers or the glossy fur of a curious woodland creature.
Having trained at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex started making his own jewellery in 1986 out of a small workshop in a picturesque, Victorian cobbled yard in south London. To this day, all of his jewellery is still hand made by a team of highly skilled jewellers in that same studio.
