Bermudian artist Alexandra Mosher is a model of local success. Taking inspiration from the island’s natural flora and fauna, Mosher launched her jewellery design business in 2004, offering sculptural jewellery for romantics who want to take a piece of Bermuda with them everywhere they go.
With a background in jewellery design, wax carving and fabrication, Mosher expertly hand-sculpts her designs in wax before casting them in metal. Her team of 20 Bermudian women finishes the pieces in the Front Street studio, adding Mosher’s signature touch of pink sand. “I’ve recently started playing with Bermuda textured pieces in 14K gold,” says Mosher. “I’m particularly proud of my technique for the fine jewellery collection; it’s an elegant way of wearing organic elements of Bermuda’s beauty in textures, like The Unfinished Church, Southampton Sea Urchin and Longtail Feathers.”
One of her many accomplishments, including Best of Bermuda awards too numerous to count, is a nod from the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “We are one of the first companies in Bermuda to receive a National Service Standards certification from the BTA,” says Mosher. The accolade dubs Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery as an impactful, diverse and unique business, delivering a consistent standard of product and customer service. Indeed, Mosher prides herself on her brand’s customer service, saying that helping her clients find the perfect piece is always a delightful experience. “We engage with our customers like they are new friends,” says Mosher. “If they’re visiting, we pride ourselves on being their Bermuda tourism ambassadors. We love our local friends too, who check back in to see what we’re sculpting each season.
“We also custom-design jewellery and have special surprises for brides and grooms who choose a collection of wedding day jewellery or gifts with us. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a special appointment or just pop in to our flagship store and studio; we’re open seven days a week.”
