There is no platform too small, no pattern too tedious and no simple things too dull for the prolific Lithuanian artist Alex Sepkus. The award-winning fine jewelry designer listens repeatedly to Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” on his IPod and immerses himself with great literary works, yet also finds great inspiration in life’s simple pleasures like lazy mornings and the sight of beautifully rendered flagstones on medieval church floors. His golden 15x11 mm bean pendant is a shimmering example of the artist’s deeply expressive and remarkably detailed designs. The bean-shaped piece is a 360 degree sculptural item hand-engraved with nearly-microscopic geometric patterns in the quintessential Alex Sepkus flourish. The spontaneous order of brilliant diamond and tiny circular designs for this pendant, worked untiringly under a microscope, are part of the Alex Sepkus charm that enthralls the world especially among his peers.
