Alexis Bittar


Dear Diary,

I just had a birthday and was absolutely spoiled rotten!  Not only did I have multiple celebrations with friends and an amazing spa weekend in Palm Springs with my boyfriend (Check out: The Parker – Amazing atmosphere, restaurants & spa!), my Mama outdid herself!  She knows how much I love surprises and anything creative, so she sent me on a little scavenger hunt that led me to 1612 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA…which I had a hunch was home to one of my favorite jewelry designers, Alexis Bittar!  My parents gave me a gift certificate so I could select my favorite pieces, since my Pinterest selections weren’t available.  I felt like I was at Disneyland!  At one point, I looked like a crazy pirate lady, wearing half of the store’s collections (the employees were so sweet and didn’t even seem annoyed with me).  I was completely overwhelmed by all of the gorgeous designs, but eventually made my selections: yellow & clear lucite bangles, “shield” earrings, and a violet pendant necklace.

Bittar is known for his inventive designs and creative work with lucite.  The lucite absolutely glows on your skin, and it’s amazing to see what colors come out of each specific cut.  I wasn’t even going to try on the violet pendant because I loved the vibrance of the blue, but as soon as it touched my skin, I knew violet was the one :)

Alexis Bittar Jewelry

His creations have graced the big screen and red carpet numerous times, and I can spot his unique twist every time.  Even Michelle Obama is loyal to his brand – if it’s alright by the First Lady, it’s alright by me…
