More About Two Turtle Doves by Alex Monroe
 
 
 
Overview
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, but with sisters to love him and brothers to fight for him, he made nature into his world. Creation became a compulsion, whether it was go-karts and guns, crossbows and booby traps, boats, bikes, or scooters. And then, it was jewelry. From full-out warfare waged against the local schoolboys to the freedom found in daredevil bike antics to the delicacies of dressmaking and the most intricate designs for jewelry, "Two Turtle Doves" traces the intimate journey of how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite design. It is about where we find our creativity, how we remember, and why we make the things we do.
