Born in 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.
Alex immigrated to the United States in 1988. Today he employs a dozen craftspeople 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.
