Alexandra takes commissions for exclusive bespoke British made backgammon boards, games sets and games tables.
These unique one-offs are created in close conversation with the client to reflect their lives and tastes. Working with master British craftsmen with hand-selected woods to build the games and furniture, each piece is then individually designed, printed or painted by Alexandra, laced with narrative and provenance. Every detail carries significance: compartments lined with leather and embossed with messages and dates, playing pieces crafted from metals, woods or semi-precious stones, subtle marquetry disclosing hidden meanings. The finished product is a glorious practical conversation piece that makes the most intimate of luxury gifts, a truly thoughtful present.
Alexandra has created such one-off creations for the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Elle Macpherson, Jacquetta Wheeler, American Vogue and for Links of London founder Annoushka Dukas.
Alexandra says that 'Just as a leather bound biography tells a verbal life story so I like to think my pieces tell a visual history; a story etched forever onto a game for future generations to play.'
