Since we opened Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery nearly three years ago, designing our Christmas Window has been one of the most exciting projects of each year! For this year's window we wanted to explore the secret worlds that we imagined were living INSIDE the beautiful boxes under the tree.
Our phenomenal trio comprised of Hannah Emmerson, our metalsmith and jeweller by day, Eileen Frith, our studio production manager by day, and I. These ladies are some of the most dedicated, talented, loyal and fun gals I have ever met. I am so very grateful to have you on our team!
To celebrate the season, we designed and made a HUGE Christmas tree that grows both inside and outside the shop windows. Special permission was sought and granted from the lovely folks at the Washington Mall to let us "grow outside the box", and for that we are ever so thankful!
Under the lower tree bows at the top of the window, we built up a huge stack of pink presents, carefully wrapped and tied with glee. Floating at eye level, eight of these boxes reveal the secret world going on inside the presents! Artfully hand cut shadowboxes display our most celebrated jewellery, set within the magical happenings we imagined were taking place inside those boxes.

We hope that our window has inspired a sense of wonder in you.

Behind the Scenes
Prepping at the Workshop
Everything in our window is handmade, mostly recycled, and pretty much all sourced from supplies in our own workshop.
For the supplies we did purchase, many thanks to our pals at DNA Creative Shoppe, the Gorham's Lumber dudes, Rowe Spurling Paint, Qui-Ja Fabrics, and the Phoenix.
No kittens were harmed in the making... no humans took naps. ;)
