I’m very excited to announce that I am launching my first-ever line of jewelry, Angela by John Hardy! At first, I was a bit scared about going on QVC, but now I couldn’t be more excited. Mostly I’m excited about the enormous audience that QVC has, and having the opportunity to connect to so many women at once—straight into their living rooms.
The whole line of Angela by John Hardy jewelry is inspired by beauty, nature and spirit. I hope that the message will inspire. I was inspired to create this line after traveling to Bali and falling in love with the culture there. I loved how connected to nature the people there are, what amazing artisans they are, and the way they know how to stop and connect to the present moment. We have lost some of this in the Western cultures, yet I believe there is so much we can gain by reconnecting ourselves to these elements that remind us what life is really about.
Every piece is crafted of recycled sterling silver and gold accents. This collection is very inspired by Mother Earth. Most people think of green and brown when they think of earth, but for me I choose blues. The elements of water and air inspire the more ethereal aspects of nature. These are the parts of nature I want to reveal. Our more poetic selves, our emotional selves, our spirits.
My packaging is also made of recycled materials. It’s important to me to make responsible choices. I designed these pieces to be timeless, so they can be passed down from generation to generation. John Hardy is a luxury brand with amazing esthetic, and with my line, I wanted to bring the element of luxury and make it attainable to many.
Love & Light,
