When John Hardy came to Bali to design his international jewelry collection, and ended up living there, he probably didn’t realize just how much he would add to the island’s increasingly important sustainability and eco ethos. A tour of his compound (to call it a factory doesn’t do it justice) is eye-opening not only in terms of the jewelry-making process but also how sustainability can provide both beauty and well-being (from the organic food served at lunch to the buildings’ all bamboo architecture).
