Alex describes the intricate detail work in his jewelry as universal with a focus on basic forms, structures and textures. I stopped making sketches years ago, he said. I imagine the piece I want to make in my head, and the hands work by themselves. Sometimes I get surprised at what comes out.
Alex begins with a wax model, which is eventually cast in 18kt gold, or platinum and then hand-finished. “I have no technical secrets,” says Sepkus. “The main trick is in the very intricate manual work that goes into the process. I can explain the process to everybody. But at the same time, I don’t think that I have ever seen a copy of my work somewhere. It is just so labor intensive.” In fact, Sepkus has developed his own specialized tools to achieve the textures that make his pieces so recognizable.
Alex’s jewelry is now available in our online shop. Special Orders also available.
