A master of design and a true original in today's world, Alex Sepkus, is a craftsman whose priority is beauty. Alex's insight and passion for his work are the driving forces in his life; "I do not keep my technique a secret. It's simply the things that I do with my fingers that transfer the idea from my head to the material."
A voracious reader, Alex's greatest inspiration comes from engrossing himself within the pages of great literary works. He gets lost in a world that brings him thousands of different ideas. "When I design a piece of jewelry it is as if I am writing a book. Each design is a chapter, not in words, but in shapes and textures. I make precious stones and cold metal speak."
A native of Vilnius, Lithuania, Alex received his graduate degree in industrial design from the Lithuanian Academy of Arts. His studies included interiors, glass making, sculpture, etchings and graphics and his graduate work was ultimately in jewelry design. Alex developed a great passion for the intricacies of his craft, creating a world that can be truly appreciated only under a microscope.
Alex immigrated to the United States in 1988. Quickly garnering the attention and respect of his peers, Alex Sepkus' efforts earned him the Jewelers of American New Designer of the Year within his first 5 years.
Today Alex Sepkus employs seventeen craftsman who work at benches with microscope mounted to swing in and out to insure the fineness and delicacy required of each piece. His signature fine detail raises the standard of excellence of all work that carries the Alex Sepkus name.
