    Alex Sepkus: A native of Kaunas, Lithuania, Alex received his graduate degree in industrial design from the Lithuanian Academy of Arts in Vilnius. His studies included interior design, glass making, sculpture and painting, with a graduate work 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 young jeweler, Jeffrey Feero, whose intuitive knowledge of running a business was a 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, which caused him to gain national and international recognition. Today Alex Sepkus employs a dozen craftsmen who work side by side with him to execute the difficult hand finishing that makes his jewelry so distinct. A microscope is mounted on each craftsman’s bench in order to insure the fineness and delicacy required of each piece. Admirers are encouraged to inspect the intricacies of each piece of art and to appreciate the fine detail that raises the standard of excellence of all work that carries the Alex Sepkus name.
