Two Turtle Doves

A Memoir of Making Things

Large Print
Rate this:
Growing up in 1970s Suffolk, in a crumbling giant of a house with wild, tangled gardens, Alex Monroe was left to wreak havoc by invention. Without visible parental influence, he made nature into his world. Creation became a compulsion, whether it was go-carts and guns, crossbows and booby-traps, boats, bikes or scooters. And then it was jewellery... From daredevil Raleigh bike antics and inter-schoolboy warfare, to the delicacies of dress-making and the most intricate metalsmithery, TWO TURTLE DOVES traces the intimate journey of how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite piece of jewellery.
