Located near Ubud, in central Bali, Kartini Studio was founded in 2013 by Desak Kartini, a Balinese woman, and her husband Mark Gibbs, who was born in England. Essentially a family business, Kartini Studio employs several of Desak's relatives.
All of our precious metal beads, perfume bottles, and harmony balls are made in our silversmith workshop. Mostly, we produce traditional Balinese designs but we also specialize in both customized beads and logo beads.
Because we cut out the middleman by making our own sterling silver and 22 karat gold plated sterling silver beads, our stone beaded bracelets cost much less than similar bracelets currently on the market.
