SRI UTAMI Jewelry was created in 2015 by an Indonesian designer, Sri Utami. Originally named BITS OF BALI, the company is inspired by the environment and balinese artistic communities that live and breathe art. The name change took effect in Dec 2017.
Sri's educational background and professional background is photography, art and media. She was based in Toronto, Canada for 10 years as a documentary photographer, working on assignments worldwide covering refugees, child labor, education, maternal health and other international development issues in places as diverse as Afghanistan, Syria, Bosnia, Turkey, Kashmir and many more.
Sri has been designing and making jewelry since 1996. Inheriting her mother’s vintage jewelry, she recycled the stones and redesigned them into timeless, contemporary pieces. This eventually motivated her to pursue her passion into a new career.
Using high quality gemstones, precious gold and sterling silver, SRI UTAMI Jewelry applies three design principles in the design: simplicity, versatility and elegance. It can be worn by avid fashionistas or those who dress more casually. Worn one piece only for an understated elegance or barely-there look, or layered for special occasions. It is the jewelry that brings life to any wardrobe and is suitable for all occasions. We hope you enjoy wearing our jewelry as much as we enjoyed creating it.
