Alexis Bittar

Alexis Bittar's piece for the book launch at Colette

• Alexis is American.

• He made his name using Lucite to create handcarved pieces of jewellery.
He started out as a kid selling vintage jewellery on the streets of New York's East Village

• He now presides over a global empire but still creates every new prototype himself

• Alexis says: 'I’m so A.D.D that I move on straight away. When it comes to the possibility of creating something new and pushing the envelope I’m like a little kid.'
