Bali  Sterling Silver Jewelry is so splendid in every detail .  The Artisans of Bali have truly mastered the art of fine jewelry making.  Designers such as John Hardy have also discovered the fine talent of the Bali Artisans.


Bali Sterling Silver Jewelry is made from 925 sterling silver and copper alloy for strength.  It is some of the finest sterling silver you will find world wide.  Components consist of handmade beads, earrings, pendants, toggles, clasps, charms and  magnificent chains for necklaces and bracelets.   Sterling silver consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Fine silver contains 99.9% pure silver. 

Certain communities specialize in the art of silversmithing, and pass their art to succeeding generations. The artists often use very simple tools, but with them achieve magnificent jewelry.  They begin with pure silver that is mined in parts of Indonesia, mixing it with a tiny bit of copper to make it stronger, and a tiny bit of borax, which helps the metals melt when heated with a torch. Once melted, the silver is poured into a mold to create sheets or wire. From these pieces, the silver is cut into different shapes and sizes to form beads. Filigree type designs are created by cutting small holes into the metal, soldering thin wires onto the pieces, and applying granulation, resulting in a surprisingly wide variety of designs. After the beads are formed, they are cleaned with a solution made from tamarind fruit, then dipped into an antiquing solution which fills the grooves with a dark color and creates a contrast between the high and low parts of the bead. In this way, the beautiful pattern of the bead is enhanced.
