John Hardy Women's Jewelry
Characteristics of John Hardy Women’s JewelryInspired by Bali and its time-honored jewelry-making traditions, Canadian artist John Hardy founded an artisan collective in 1975 focused on creating one-of-a-kind jewelry and preserving Bali’s heritage. Today, John Hardy continues to make handcrafted jewelry using the same techniques from 40 years ago. Known for bold designs and meticulous attention to details, John Hardy pieces feature beautiful chain-weaving, hand-hammered precious metals, intricate carving, and textured jawan motifs (traditionally found in the decoration of sacred objects).
Popular John Hardy Women’s Jewelry CollectionsThe iconic Classic Chain bracelet takes one artisan four days to weave by hand. The brand is committed to preserving the natural landscape of Bali and uses its success to continue that work; for each purchase from the Bamboo Collection, the company planted a bamboo seedling (over 1 million seedlings have been planted so far) as part of their “Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo” initiative. Each piece is a pure stunner, while also helping to preserve our environment. And the brand strives to use only ethically sourced gemstones and 100% reclaimed silver and gold.
In addition to the Bamboo Collection, John Hardy’s Modern Chain line is another favorite. Reimagining the classic chain, this style is streamlined with a flattened silhouette and clasp closure. For those looking for a slightly more traditional look, the Classic Chain collection features handwoven chains with modern Balinese technique. The Legends Naga line is a bold vision, featuring the strong, mythical dragon on many of its pieces. Wear the dragon facing outward for protection or inward for love. Lastly, the Dot Collection is another popular line and is inspired by the natural shapes of pebbles lining the beaches of Bali.
