Unlike most big-wig jewelry makers who boast of centuries’ old traditions, renegade designer Alex Sepkus holds on to none. It is what sets him apart from the rest of the crowd and he considers it his valuable asset. Outlandish and evocative, his creations draw to mind images of gold-laden oriental princesses and unheard-of sci-fi machines. This hat-wearing eccentric is also a fanatic, whose attention to details wows even the best of his contemporaries. His works are so decked out in minute and intricate features that his artists often have to work under a microscope, as he himself have mastered to do so. Instead of jewelry, Alex Septus prefers to call his gem-decked designs as “tiny, wearable art” and his extensive fan base couldn’t agree more.
