Perhaps the most iconic of all John Hardy styles, the Bamboo collection has come to represent all that we stand for: strong design, traditional jewelry-making and a dedication to sustainable living. With bamboo a central element in the Balinese way of life, used in food, building and decoration, this versatile tree-like grass, often called "nature's gift to mankind", is a natural source of inspiration for this core collection.
John Hardy traveled the world to draw inspiration for his unique jewelry, and settled in Bali where he fell in love with the environment and the tribal influences. He creates his jewelry designs with nature in mind, working in eco-friendly workshops and buildings that lie in organic farmland, and John Hardy takes great care to provide his employees with a peaceful work environment. John Hardy and his wife give back to the Balinese community by supporting a mid-wife clinic, initiating large recycling programs, providing healthy lunches, and recently starting his mission for “sustainable advertising.” By planting bamboo he hopes to offset the greenhouse gas emissions set off by his printing campaigns. As much hard work that John and Cynthia put into their serene quality of life, they put even more effort into crafting amazing jewelry.
