I fell in love with Alexis Bittar's lucite jewelry in 2000 when I found his delicate earrings and had to buy them like they were candy. I have many colors, but my favorites tend to be the white drops I wear probably more often than I should....
Two years later I was in New York for Christmas and shopping in Saks. I found myself at the jewelry counter and was looking for more of my favorite Alexis Bittar designs when the sales person asked if I would like to meet him. Imagine my surprise - up until that moment I had visions of Alexis as in Carrington or sexy young hip designer girl with smoky eyes.....not this good looking guy...(Yes, I always picture the designer whether I know what they look like or not. Boy did I miss this one!)
Patricia Field of "Sex and the City" fame had recently placed his jewelry in the show and it was his time. He was nice, helpful and working the stock to make sure that when the lighting struck he would capture it. I like smart and hard working people. He earned his good fortune!
Years later I am still smitten with his jewelry. As you can see the lucite and embellishments have become more sophisticated and and I remain a fan!
