Kew Gardens Locket
To help celebrate the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens turning 250 years old, Alex created an exclusive collection for the historical gardens. '
'When I was approached by Kew Gardens, I knew that that I would have no trouble finding inspiration within the plethora of botanical treats they have. With sketchbook in hand I headed straight to one of my favourite places - the Palm House. The Palm House is a fascinating piece of Victorian architecture. Constructed from iron and glass, it is home to every kind of Palm plant species imaginable. It truly is a national treasure and could spend days on end sitting in the lush greenery sketching'.
The locket features a palm leaf texture on both sides of the locket. The inside of the locket contains an orchid.
The locket measures approximately 3cm from top to bottom and approximately 2.5 cm at it's widest point.
The locket comes on a fixed 22 inch chain. The necklace is available in sterling silver and 22ct gold plate.
All Alex Monroe jewellery is handmade in the UK.
