Alexandra Mor to Lead Protagonist Exhibition at Salon Art + Design

As a leader in the field of fine jewellery design and production, Alexandra Mor’s limited-edition and one-of-a-kind collections are sought out by collectors the world over.

Acknowledging the weight of her role as a leader in her industry, Alexandra Mor (lead photo) has consistently used conflict-free fine gems in her designs.

In recent years, she has taken this practice further and evolved her role as an advocate for sustainability and mindful design. She has embraced her motto, ‘Designers Are the New Activists’ as a mission to educate others about the benefits of low impact practices and effectively rebrand sustainable materials in the field of fine jewellery.

Unveiled in 2017, her Journey’s collection featuring the tagua seed spurred interest from fellow leaders in the field of Haute jewellery. She was named Creative Director of Vogue Italia’s annual Protagonist Exhibition and has since grown the event year over year, bringing together like-minded designers, artists, brands and collectors who believe in the ability of fine jewellery to make positive contributions to the fields of sustainability and preservation.

For the 2019 edition of the Protagonist held at the Salon of Art + Design on Park Avenue Armory, November 14-18, Alexandra presents a curated selection of her work from past and current partnerships that embrace exceptional craftsmanship and fair, low-impact practices.

Through her work in public speaking and events, she has inspired her field and affected real, positive change in the movement towards mindful design. She is the recipient of several awards honouring her efforts in the sustainable luxury field.

Alexandra Mor’s path to embracing mindful design began when she felt the need for a creative boost. After six years of managing her brand in New York City, Alexandra took a leap and moved to the island of Bali with her family.

It was in Bali that she found the space to focus on new ideas centred around the preservation and celebration of the natural world and its rich cultures of people. Enlisting the work of traditional Balinese carvers and fine metal artisans, Mor created her tagua seed capsule collection with the goal to elevate the tagua seed as a luxury material and effective replacement for elephant ivory.

As Mor continued to learn about the horrors of elephant poaching and illegal harvesting of ivory, her discovery of the tagua seed was an obvious choice to contribute her talents toward a very worthy cause.
