Friends,

The Russian invasion of Ukraine brings our common humanity into sharp focus and ignites an urgent desire to help. On Tuesday and Wednesday, May 17 & 18, Jeff Feero will be here with the Alex Šepkus collection to help raise funds for Ukrainian relief.

These efforts are critical to the survival of millions of displaced and traumatized families. RAZOM will receive our donation, but Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, World Food Program, and United Way are other worthy and effective organizations to consider in this crisis.

Please come to the show and welcome Jeff, have a slice of Honey Babka, and try on some inspired and uplifting jewelry. There’s never been a better time to add a new Šepkus piece to your fine jewelry collection. Or a better reason.

Peace, Hanna Cook-Wallace 

From the Alex Šepkus team in New York: “These past few weeks we have been hurting witnessing the invasion of Ukraine and the devastations of war. There are people in the Alex Šepkus family who had to call their families to tell them to leave their homes, and go westward when the news of the first missiles hit. So far everyone is safe and in hiding. As we try to hold each other up, it is a comfort we cling to. Across Eastern Europe, people are again experiencing the physical, psychological, and emotional effects of war and occupation. Alex was Lithuanian and had applied for asylum from Soviet rule in the late 80’s. His team has always been and is international: Lithuanian, Ukrainian, Japanese, Polish, Columbian, Romanian, Ecuadorian, and American. As such, the pain of war and the memory of occupation is deeply felt. We feel it around us in NYC as well. We are sharing a photo of Natasha hammering in NYC. Alex, a Lithuanian artist met another artist from Ukraine where she has been able to understand his vision and help bring his textures to gold.”

Šepkus at Studio Jewelers

This website has grown out of our in-house “Šepkus Salon”, the large collection of Alex’s work that we offer our customers – one of the largest in the Midwest and in the U.S. While we have featured much of this collection on our store’s website, we felt the need to be able to provide an easier way for everyone to contact us regarding purchasing this amazing artist’s work. Our intention is to be a full-service online jewelry store that reflects Alex’s traditionalist ethic, providing personalized service and consultation before you buy. We want to hear from you, to offer you the unique story of the piece you are considering and help you make the best choice possible. If you have questions about any of the pieces you see here, give us a call. We’re here Monday thru Friday, 11 am to 6 pm EST and Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm EST at (608) 257-2627. If we’re not here to accept your call, email us at studiojewelers@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Here are a few Alex Šepkus “basics”:

Available metals are 18K yellow gold, 18K rose gold and platinum. All diamonds are well cut, F-G in color, and VVS in clarity, (unless otherwise specified). You have a choice of white diamonds or champagne and spice-toned diamonds in Šepkus diamond pieces, as well as the option of colored sapphire accents in a number of his pieces. Prices increase a bit for rings in larger sizes, depending on the style. Alex Šepkus controls the prices of his work and discounts are not available. Prices are subject to change. A happy note: Alex recently reduced the price of all his platinum pieces.
