Creating jewelry is an art. I am a firm believer that the art of the process determines the outcome. When skilled artisans come together to craft an object, you can feel it. At John Hardy, we referred to it as the “soul” of the jewelry. The silversmith tradition in Bali has been handed down over generations. Weaving palm fronds into daily offerings, designing penjar, carving wood, embroidering kebaya, amongst the many examples of artisanal tradition in Bali are skills many start to develop as a child and some become masters of their craft at a very young age.
