AUTHENTIC BALINESE LUNCH WITH JOHN HARDY – We arrived at the John Hardy, a sustainable luxury brand creating objects of beauty; one of a kind, one at a time, each piece by hand. The brand’s home is in Ubud, the heart of Bali, where its jewelry is made in its open air compound that is equal parts studio, workshop and organic farm.  Around 12pm we went to join the John Hardy designers and artisans for an organic lunch served under the shade of a Banyan tree, and prepared by the five-star chef in a traditional Balinese, wood-burning oven. It was the best way to get some culture and rejuvenate our souls with the tropical breeze.
