John Hardy, a Canadian artist, visited Bali in the 1970s and was enraptured by the vigor and vitality of life on the island, its rich culture, and simple and pure lifestyle. There, he discovered the inspiring tradition of artistry among the Balinese and their skill for hand-crafting jewelry that dates back to the goldsmiths of the ancient Balinese courts. He settled there and built a brand that to this day embodies ultimate beauty.
With his wife, Cynthia, they transcended the challenges of living and working in the jungle, and through their perseverance and enduring strength John Hardy jewelry became revered throughout the world.
Bali was an open door to a creative world, and John and Cynthia built an oasis, forming a tight-knit community of artisans and craftsman, while pursuing their dream of living a meaningful and inspired life.
John and Cynthia found their universal source of artistic, physical and spiritual inspiration in Bali.
