Silver is a very malleable metal with a bright white color, and it is the most reflective metal on earth. In its pure form it is too soft to produce jewelry, and is therefore combined with other alloys for this procedure.
Bali Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, mostly copper. Other metals can be used in replace of copper with the intention of reducing tarnishing. Bali Sterling silver jewelry is very distinctive, using fine filigree work combined with oxidization to create a three dimensional design.
Balinese silversmiths still use the same techniques passed down from generation to generation, for creating hand made jewelry. The pieces that can be found here are true works of art, and admired by people from all over the world.
There is a wide choice of Bali sterling silver jewelry for women, men and children, to suit all tastes and budgets.

There are many Bali sterling silver jewelry manufacturers on the island, where you can order from their lines, or have your own designs made. Taking a visit to one of these production houses is an eye opening experience. To see first hand the work involved in making one piece of jewelry is fascinating.
The specialty of the Balinese silver smiths is their fine filigree work. Tiny balls of silver, combined with wire work designs are used to decorate pendants, earrings and bracelets. Oxidization is added to bring out the details. Women have the task of creating the small balls and gluing them to the pieces.
Various gemstones both precious and semi precious are set among the filigree work, and the end result is stunning. Matching sets of earring, bracelets and pendants can be purchased and will look great worn with any outfit. The shiny silver, against the bright gemstones is a fantastic combination.
how is bali sterling silver jewelry created?
Bali sterling silver jewelry is mostly made by hand. The process begins by taking the small granules of silver and weighing and mixing with the 7.5% copper or other alloys. The tiny beads of silver and copper are heated with a simple torch, using gas and a foot pump.
The molten mixture is then used to create flat, thin pieces of silver. These sheets of silver are used to create bezels for gemstones, or shaped in to beads. Wire is made by pulling the silver through a hand pulled machine which has holes regulated for each size of wire needed.
Every part of the Bali sterling silver jewelry making process requires patience and skill. The silver smiths work long hours and always strive for perfection. The handmade nature of the pieces of jewelry means that you know you are getting something truly unique, that has been made with great care and attention to detail.

how to care for silver jewelry
Bali silver sterling jewelry is beautifully white and shiny when you first buy it, but over time, it will tarnish. There are various ways to care for your jewelry to make sure you keep it looking good for years to come.
There are various polishing cloths that you can buy, and use to give your jewelry a quick rub when it starts to go dull. Do not use tissues as these will cause scratches. Use warm water and a soft cloth for best results.
Do not wear your jewelry for bathing or swimming, as chlorinated water can react with the metal. Perfumes, lotions and other chemical products can also damage sterling silver jewelry. Putting jewelry on after applying these materials will limit exposure to harsh chemicals and potential damage.
