John Hardy launches its first U.S. flagship and Artisan in Residence Workshop in NYC

WITH the newness that today’s consumers demand it is easy to forget that many of the luxuries we enjoy are actually still crafted by people.

Established in Bali in 1975, John Hardy is dedicated to the creation of ultimate beauty through artisan handcrafted jewelry. Their master artisans honor original craft through the perfection of modern design, creating timeless one-of-a-kind pieces that are brilliantly alive.

Each of John Hardy’s distinctive collections conveys evocative symbolism and honors the transmission of creative energy from the artist to the wearer. Since inception, the company has been deeply rooted in the essential values of community, artisanship and sustainability. 

Recently, John Hardy launched its first U.S. flagship in New York City and its Artisan in Residence Workshop with a star-studded event, spotting Freida Pinto, Andreja Pejić, Jasmine Tookes looking stunning in John Hardy jewelry.

The Artisan in Residence animates the creative spirit and storied craftsmanship of the John Hardy Ubud Workshop and Showroom in Bali into a full sensory experience and will be dedicated to hosting artisan master classes, workshops, talks, and installations across dynamic disciplines.

The space serves as a real workshop for John Hardy Artisans when in Residence from overseas.

To launch the Artisan in Residence, John Hardy brought its Balinese artisans half way around the globe to New York to demonstrate the brand’s signature 8-step jewelry-making process. Master artisans impressed guests by their intricate skills on jewelry design and illustration by watercolor, wax carving the designs into 3-dimensional wax molds, and weaving silver and gold into the brand’s iconic Classic Chain bracelets.
