Native New Yorker Alexis Bittar has been on the fashion scene since the mid-1980’s when he began selling his hand-sculpted jewelry on the streets of Soho. Since then, he has continued creating collections of earrings, necklaces and bracelets using carved Lucite and semi-precious gems. His jewelry has appeared on Sex and the City, on the runway for Burberry’s and in ad campaigns for Estee Lauder. Alexis Bittar’s jewelry continues to be one of the most sought after here at TWISTonline.
i took this from MR BITTAR'S bio. i LOVE him.my client,PAIGE turned me onto his LUCITE MADNESS on a recent trip to NY for clothes and accesories. BERGDORF GOODMAN took a chance on him and now he's HUGE! i love his price point. keep in mind, LUCITE is very cost effective and easy to wear. i call ALEXIS BITTAR my "RECESSION PROOF" baubles. check out some great pieces today at SAKS FIFTH AVENUE. we just scooped up some very inexpensive broaches to pair with a REDUNK LANVIN JUMPSUIT. so excited for the finished look!
P.S. ALEXIS also works with gold and silver :)
