We return to our home in Bali, where there is a myth of a dragon with a fierce and protective love for the pearl. The dragon leaves his home in the Balinese volcanos each evening and visits his pearl at the bottom of the sea. When he returns to his lair, his scales shed water into the fields, bringing the island love, prosperity and protection. This dragon, the Naga, is sacred to the Balinese and a symbol of our connection to the natural world. The legend is very much a part of Bali, so the Naga is naturally very much a part of us. This season we returned to the legend's power, giving the collection a new energy and movement; his scales glimmering with black sapphire and eyes burning with richly colored rubies. Discover our home in Bali and explore the power of the Naga collection.

In the villages of Borneo, craftsmen have been creating beads of astounding complexity for centuries. These beads are so beautiful that they were once used as currency and of tremendous value, even today. In these villages, we saw the spectacular beaded patterns in the striking contrast of black and white. We emulated that pattern, first creating our own handmade silver beads then polishing them to high shines or oxidizing them completely to black and then blending the two together, with chains and diamonds and a variety of precious gems creating these fluid, primal designs with an innate elegance.
