In spite of her stardom, the first time Janet Jackson felt truly sexy and confident wasn't until she was well into her 30s.

The realization that, you know what, you're not so bad after all. I'm not saying you're great or you're the best, but it's not as bad as you were made to feel that it was." How did she overcome some of her biggest insecurities? "A lot of it has to do with experience, getting older. Understanding, realizing that there isn't just one thing that is considered beautiful. Beautiful comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. "

Artisan handcrafted jewelry brand John Hardy, founded in Bali in 1975, debuted 'Made for Legends in October 2017, as a new creative platform celebrating the personal power of femininity through the bold philosophy of wearing jewelry to express, to empower, and most of all, to honor the unstoppable potential of the self.

Those are lofty words but both Adwoa Aboah and Julianne Moore are activists as well as professionals practicing their crafts. 

For her first collection for John Hardy, designer Hollie Bonneville Barden, the first woman to take the house’s creative reigns, reimagined the classic Naga motif. Barden relocated to New York and Bali from London, where she was the creative director of De Beers.
