As part of Craft Cubed 2011, Lord Coconut is participating in the Open Studio event this Saturday. The store will be open from 10am to 4pm and we will have free Ginger Beer and selected sweet treats available throughout the day.

Jeweller A.l.i.Alexander will be creating one of her Thesis rings in wax for a client on the day whose thesis was titled ‘The effects of Thyroxine on regeneration of peripheral nerves in the axolotl, Amblystoma mexicanum’. Ali says “I have always been intrigued by thesis titles and I’m thrilled that I have found a way to help celebrate the completion of a thesis”.

Ali will also be creating by hand a special lapel pin in wax throughout the day which will be cast in sterling silver and finished the following week. The completed lapel pin will be given away to a lucky store visitor as part of our involvement with the Craft Cubed Open Studio program.

Pop in on the day and become one of the first explorers to experience the amazing range of cufflinks, necklaces, tie pins, lapel pins, brooches, bracelets and rings which have found a retail home at Lord Coconut.
