Alex Sepkus website
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, 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 works was ultimately in jewelry design. With a strong understanding and respect for precision and balance, personified by his father, a well-respected architect, 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. Within a few years, he met a talented young entrepreneur and jeweler, Jeffrey Feero, whose business savvy was a perfect compliment to Alex’s creative genius. Quickly garnering the attention and respect of his peers, Alex Sepkus’ efforts earned him the Jewelers of America New Designer of the Year Award within his first 5 years. Gaining national and international recognition, Alex’s designs are coveted masterpieces and are showcased in over 120 of the finest specialty stores around the country from Fox’s in Seattle to Bergdorf Goodman in New York.
