Lucky us! The RTR fashion team was given an exclusive “sneak peek” of Alexis Bittar‘s design studio in Brooklyn. A favorite of everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga, his hand-crafted jewelry is all made right here at his studio in Brooklyn.
It was incredible to see the level of craftsmanship; every piece of his jewelry is one-of-a-kind and hand-crafted from the first stage of design to the final step in production.
From the molding, painting and bejeweling of their fabulous Lucite to the casting and plating of the metals, the detail that goes into creating each piece is remarkable. What a special treat to see the small and talented group of artists who produce everything from the tiniest earring to the most intricate and over-the-top necklaces!
