If you hanker for quirky jewellery and leather accessories, retro-style bags and clothes made from unusual prints, head on down to Twickenham. Monica Boxley can be found in the shop that bears her name and she will be more than happy to show you her ranges of silver jewellery (produced in her Isleworth studio), her Marianne bags (inspired by her mother's '60s handbags), her range of clothes, using unusual and retro prints, and her silk blouses reclaimed from vintage scarves. What else would you expect from a trained jeweller inspired by a milliner mother?

Monica also exhibits her goods at various trade shows, accepts commissions for bags and jewellery, and exports some of her products to countries around the world. 90% of the items sold in her Church Street shop are handmade by her and others, in the UK wherever possible, and by small communities. If she can't accept your jewellery commission, she probably knows somebody else who could design what you want.

As an example of her work, this is a British coin bracelet, made from coins, recast in silver. What a perfectly patriotic gift in this year of the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
