Our jewelry is made by hand almost exclusively on the island of Bali where we, Vera and Wolf, started our business twenty-five years ago. We were at the same time charmed and somewhat saddened from our early visits to Bali; charmed by the beauty, grace, and good nature of the Balinese people, yet saddened by the hardships of daily life in some of the smaller villages.
From the beginning, we chose to deal with small family-owned silversmith groups and to this day, almost all of our original silversmiths remain. As Vera Wolf has grown and prospered, so have the lives of our friends, half a world away.
Wolf designs the jewelry, which has been described as largely organic in nature. Our ideas draw upon various influences ranging from natural elements and spiritual symbols, to themes from the Victorian, art nouveau and art deco periods.
Occasional designs of whimsy will be seen as well, stemming from the humor and irony of daily life Wolf observes during his travels. In these times of rapidly escalating costs and market instability, the quality and affordability of Vera Wolf jewelry makes it an exceptional value. Our gemstones are striking, rivaling those in lines costing twice as much, and the hand craftsmanship is unsurpassed, reflecting the experience and expertise of the extraordinary Balinese artisans who have been making our jewelry since 1986.
