Inside John Hardy
Head Designer and Creative Director Guy Bedarida joined John Hardy in the late 1990s, bringing with him a vast knowledge of haute joaillerie following extensive training and experience throughout Europe and the United States. Once at John Hardy, he helped develop a new workshop and design center, training local illustrators in the fine art of jewelry drawing. The design team is now made up of hundreds of masterful artisans. John Hardy's first partners, the ancestors of the goldsmiths to the Balinese royal courts of Bali, were the basis of today's partnership between designers and artisans. Together, they meld time-honored jewelry-making techniques and fresh design to create John Hardy pieces.
