Meet the Silversmiths

Our Handmade Bali Silver is made piece by piece in a painstaking process that requires enormous skill and patience. Every little silver ball, every tiny filigree wire is made and applied by hand. Most of the silversmiths at our production facility are young men and women who have trained for many years.
