John Hardy Jewelry Spring 2010

The latest designs from John Hardy creative director, Guy Bedarida, were unveiled recently in New York at the company’s bi-annual editor’s day. Highlights of new offerings include efforts to keep pieces lighter (and less expensive) in a number of styles, bangle cuffs featured kick-back openings for easy wear, single charms (initial and zodiac motifs, among others) on skinny bangle bracelets retail for $198, and color and Japanese influences, like bamboo basketry, played a large role collection-wide.
