He has worked with many artisans from Bali to develop his signature style which incorporates the age-old techniques of his ancestors with the mastery of those contemporary Balinese artisans. The designs from John Hardy are infused with Balinese values, which treasure harmony with nature above all. The John Hardy workshop currently employs hundreds of artisans in the highlands of Bali, where they strive to create beautiful designs that are inspired by the beautiful natural landscapes surrounding the workshop.
Each piece of John Hardy jewelry is a handmade piece of designer jewelry that has painstakingly been created from the drafting table up. The designs are created on paper by artists highly trained in the French art of technical jewelry drawing. Illustrators, wax carvers and goldsmiths work together to create the stunning John Hardy bracelets, rings, necklaces, and earrings that the company is known for.
In accordance with the philosophy that the Earth is their inspiration and also their responsibility to keep it healthy, the company has created its Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo program to give back to the Earth each time a piece of jewelry is sold. For each piece sold, a portion of the proceeds from that piece is used to plant new bamboo seedlings near Nusa Penida, Bali.
