Alexandra takes commissions for bespoke games, games tables and luxury gifts. Alexandra's imagination, realised by the best of British craftsmanship, ensures that every detail is created in close conversation with the client, delivering a truly original way to commemorate memories and life achievements; works of art that will be enjoyed for generations to come.'
Working with Alexandra from concept to creation, you will be guided through the process of making your bespoke commission come to life. Alexandra works with a team of master craftsman in the UK who each specialises in different techniques and materials – marquetry, woods, leathers, semi-precious stones, printing, hand-painting and engraving.
Alexandra’s favourite medium is the ancient technique of marquetry. She will translate your design, utilizing the grain, figure and colours of the many different woods to describe each element. A butterfly may be composed of over one hundred pieces of individually cut veneer, masterly configured and sealed with lacquer.
“Like a leather-bound biography or photograph album, my designs tell your life story in a game to be enjoyed for generations to come.”
