Buddha to Buddha
Where it all began...
Our story begins in 1997. In search of the deeper meaning in life, our founder Batul Loomans decided to take a meditation journey through Southeast Asia. There, he started sketching a bracelet. The links of the bracelet represented the connection between two beings and the bracelet had to be heavy, to keep him grounded in this life. Together with a local silversmith, he brought those sketches to life; Buddha to Buddha, and our first bracelet was born.
Ever since, we create our 925-sterling silver and 14-carat gold masterpieces with the best craftsmen we can find. We pride ourselves that each piece of jewelry is made by hand. Therefore, every piece is unique, and each piece has a soul.
In life, there are things so refined, that you would hardly believe it’s made by mankind. Craftsmanship is at the core of our premium jewelry. It takes at least 72 man hours for our pieces are ready to be worn.
A chain forms the base for every design. The core is made of different sections forming a chain out of unconventional connections. While shaping the chain, the craftsman will use all their expertise to give the Buddha its shine. By attaching the chain to the lock, the Buddha is given its soul. Everything we design, everything we create and everything we do is one-of-a-kind handmade for you.
We are the original chainmakers.
With all our doings, our jewelry, and our brand we inspire you to create meaningful connections with the earth, people, and most importantly with yourself.
Get in touch with the inner you. Reach out. Forge strong and meaningful connections with others. Connect with the rest of the world. Give a f*ck. Care.
Our jewelry is not about labels, it’s about that special piece that expresses your unique style. Our jewelry is genderless, raceless and ageless. We just craft beautiful pieces, you make it a jewel.
Embrace yourself. Embrace the people you love. Embrace life.
Designed in Amsterdam, handcrafted in Bali.
Designed in Amsterdam
Each new piece of jewelry is like a beautiful flower, developing slowly but surely as time passes. It starts with the first seed of a new idea in the minds of our highly skilled and creative designers in Amsterdam. This is worked out in sketches and computer drawings and discussed with colleagues. From the drawings, each individual piece of silver or another material is measured and calculated.
Handcrafted on Bali
As the seed germinates into a budding flower, a specialist determines if the piece can be made and which steps are necessary in the process. The design is then sent to Bali, where hundreds of local craftsmen –and women- are engaged in making Buddha to Buddha jewelry. Silver craft is a long-established tradition on the island and it’s truly amazing to witness the patience and precision with which every piece is hand-crafted. For the intricate designs, separate molds are made. Each line is lovingly drawn and scratched out by hand. With the so-called lost wax casting method, hot liquid silver is then poured into the molds. After cooling off, the different components of the jewelry, like the petals of a flower, are buffed and polished. And finally, the pieces are linked together and the shining piece of jewelry unfolds like a glorious flower. So when you look at your Buddha to Buddha ring, bracelet or necklace, remember how much love and dedication has gone into the making of it, you will appreciate and cherish it even more!
