Attracted to Bermuda’s pink sand, Alexandra Mosher initiated a
trend that swept the island. each of her Bermuda sand pieces is hand
cast, polished and finished in her Bermuda studio. Mosher and her
team create the wax mould, cast in silver or gold, and then set each
minute piece of sand into jewellery-grade resin. mosher launched
her jewellery line in 2005 and since then has established a name for
herself and her uniquely recognisable Bermuda sand jewellery.
“[mosher] has managed to create something that not only speaks to
tourists, but also to our local clientele,” said judge Kate dunmore. “she
has built her business from the ground up and continues to display
new ideas in her collections. each piece that she creates exudes a high
level of creativity and innovation.” Judges noted that she created a
product that did not previously exist and “put Bermuda’s pink sand on
the map.” Judges were also intrigued by the process of Mosher’s new
line of men’s bands. once again, mosher turned to the microscopic
microcosms that are an integral part of Bermuda’s beauty. she found
inspiration in the minutia of her surroundings and began to take moulds
of palm berry stems, rusty boat chains, driftwood knots and salty rocks.
Judge Megan pitman stated her appreciation of the artist’s “clever
plays with Bermuda materials and inspiration, as well as a diverse and
clever business model which appeals and caters to to the gift, tourist
and local markets.” not only has mosher led the way for her original
pink sand collection to become an islandwide phenomenon, but she
continues to innovate uniquely Bermudian products.

ASTWOOD DICKINSON: ORIGINAL BERMUDA COLLECTION
The astwood dickinson Bermuda collection has been a part of
Bermuda’s jewellery scene for more than three decades, with the
first designs emerging almost 50 years ago. the Bermuda Collection is inspired by the island’s unique flora, fauna and landmarks
such as Bermuda cedar, Bermudianas, longtails, and the Bermuda
fitted dinghy. the timeless creations are handcrafted in the Astwood
dickinson store out of 18 karat gold. the judges wanted to recognise the Bermuda collection for paving the way in Bermuda jewellery, and for its classic look that has become a Bermudian staple.
one judge stated, “the company is over 100 years old and was the
innovator in Bermuda jewellery design. These are timeless pieces
that are cherished through Bermudian generations.”
The Bermuda Collection is available at Astwood Dickinson’s main store (Orbis House), Astwood
Dickinson’s arcade store and A.S. Cooper’s main store.

CORAL COAST CLOTHING
coral coast clothing was started by two young Bermudians who
saw an un-tapped area in the Bermuda market for more stylish office wear. the judges noted the high quality of the shirts with their
signature blue buttons in addition to their innovative presentation
and packaging. coral coast is “one to watch,” as they steadily meet
the demands of Bermuda’s young professionals with their intrinsically Bermuda-inspired designs.
Coral Coast shirts are available at the Coral Beach Club and rosewood Tucker’s Point gift shops, or by
appointment in their Bermudiana Arcade showroom or online at www.coralcoastclothing.com
