Two Turtle Doves: A Memoir of Making Things

Two Turtle Doves is the story of a life spent making things. Whether it was go-carts and guns, cross-bows and booby-traps, boats, bikes or scooters. And then, it was jewellery. Alex’s book traces the intimate journey of how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite piece of jewellery. It is about where we find our creativity and why we make the things we do.

'A charming, whimsical read'
Glamour magazine
Join Alex in our little Boutique in London's Bermondsey for a chance to have your book signed and chat about his jewellery and the book.

Alex will be happy to write special personalised messages in your copy of his book, plus we'll have copies available to purchase on the night.

Come and join us from 5pm to 8pm.
No RSVP required but do bear with us as our shop is very small and it may get busy.

'Those expecting a polite, perhaps even genteel stroll through a high-end world of necklaces, earrings, lockets and so forth will be taken aback….  I imagine its being rediscovered with delight in some dusty bookcase a century hence and hailed as a classic.

Two Turtle Doves is a good deal more than a memoir. It is difficult to think of a text that better describes the way in which lived experience is translated by high craftsmanship into art.'

Wynn Wheldon. The Spectator
