John Hardy~ Classic Chain Woven Sterling Silver Necklace
Inspired by Bali and its time-honored jewelry-making traditions, Canadian artist John Hardy established an artisan collective in 1975 dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind jewelry and preserving the rich heritage of Bali.
Jewelry crafted by hand, one piece at a time, through a unique 8-step process starting with a hand-sketched and watercolor design, followed by a wax carving and master casting of the piece, and ending with the hand-setting of each gemstone.
Over the years, John Hardy have stayed true to the authentic jewelry-making techniques of the Balinese royal courts— chain-weaving, hand-hammering precious metals, carving intricate back-grille scenes inspired by nature, and the textured jawan motif, traditionally found in the decoration of sacred objects. Each one-of-a-kind piece is imbued with meaning through powerful design and dramatic details.
