Guy Bedarida, creative director and head designer of the John Hardy brand, joined the company in the 1990s after receiving a call from Mr. John Hardy himself. Since then, he’s worked synergistically with the team, taking it to new heights with an eye on sustainability and social responsibility.
Guy’s passion for craftsmanship can be found in his joaillerie history, which includes the likes of Van Cleef & Arpels. Today he works closely with hundreds of artisan masters to create intensely coveted jewelry with a Balinese pedigree. Here we get to know the talented man behind the brand before his personal visit to Sarasota’s Saks Fifth Avenue on April 16 from 1-4 p.m., where where he’ll be signing pieces from his new spring 2013 collection. Interested? RSVP to (941) 364-5318. Or enjoy the John Hardy trunk show from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. that same day.…//CLICK HERE for more @SarasotaMagazine.com
