Buddha to Buddha and Bali are inextricably linked. Not only because all BtB jewellery is made in Bali, but also because in our products we try to unite the special qualities of this island paradise: spirituality, respect for the material and master craftsmanship. Bali has a great reputation when it comes to culture and is a source of inspiration for many people.
Craftsmanship is the key to all Buddha to Buddha jewellery. Whether it’s a ring, a bracelet or a necklace, each piece is the result of a long and meticulous process involving creative minds, infinite patience and very steady hands. Each new piece of jewellery is like a beautiful flower, developing slowly but surely as time passes.
What is the connexion between the dance scene and silver jewellery? Of course, it has to be Buddha to Buddha. Many of our timeless designs have become popular with DJs and producers around the world. Because we are fervent supporters of this contemporary type of music and want to stimulate young musical talents, we have set up the Embrace Life foundation.
Buddha to Buddha pieces are all designed in Amsterdam and handmade by the finest silversmiths on Bali. Having worked on this beautiful island since our conception, the brand has a deep-rooted connection with the island’s people and culture. To ensure that we give back and invest in the future of the Balinese community we work with so closely, Buddha to Buddha has started a project with Margaret Barry’s Bali Children Foundation.
The moment I started Buddha to Buddha in 1992 was also the first year that I was in India. After having worked for a couple of weeks with Mother Theresa in Calcutta, I left for Goa. This is an old Portuguese colony a couple of hours south of Bombay on the coast. For years, Goa remained my favourite place to hang out with friends on the beach.
