Alex Sepkus is a fanatic; the intelligences he applies to his work is
far beyond the national standard requirements of a jeweler set by the
committee of national standard requirements. Which leads to the second
contradiction about Alex: This obsessive approach would normally
suggest an absence of humor. Instead, we see in Alex's work an
irresistible playfulness, even a quirkiness, unrivalled in the world
of the goldsmith. So, Alex is out - which is precisely why Alex Sepkus
is in. Penned by a gentleman.
