Our Story

The Made In Earth namesake began in 1999 in Melbourne, Australia by Founder, Head Designer and Creative Director, Bunny Bedi. 

As a jewelry brand focusing on semi-precious gemstones, we are dedicated to bringing our clientele a selection of high quality stones from extremely rare to well-known favorites, sourced from across the globe. Each piece of our one-of-a-kind jewelry has its own unique story and serves as a reminder of the beauty of our natural world. We continue to create and be inspired by the endless possibilities of Mother Earth. 

With the launch of four galleries since 2011, each Made In Earth location can be found in a cool, eclectic neighborhood. The beachside city of Del Mar, San Diego houses our newest gallery, launched in mid-2015, joining our other locations in Venice Beach, California; Nolita, New York; and St. Kilda, Australia.

Stepping into one of our galleries, Made In Earth’s welcoming energy transforms your jewelry experience through visionary interior design, expert stylists, and a variety of rare to everyday stones on display. Each industrial-inspired gallery carries its own exclusive range of over 150 gemstones, crystals, fossils and meteorites from across the globe, guaranteeing a unique visit every time.

Each one-of-a-kind piece has its own story to tell from where it was sourced, how it was formed, to its spiritual significance. Focused on the natural beauty of each stone, we use .925 sterling silver for all handcrafted designs allowing the gemstone to be the hero of each piece. At Made In Earth we remain cutting edge within the jewelry realm by frequently experimenting with the latest cuts, polishes and industry innovations. 

Nature Creates, We Enhance…

 

Bunny Bedi - Designer

Made In Earth’s Founder, Creative Director and Head Designer, Bunny Bedi has always worked within a creative field, having worked as a chef for 10 years before establishingMade In Earth Australia in 1999. 

It all began when Bunny came across a piece of Malachite and was instantly attracted to it. This gem, known as the stone of transformation, was what began his life-changing journey into the world of natural gemstones.


Inspired by the beauty of nature and the endless array of colors and patterns, Bunny showcases the gemstone as the centerpiece in each of his designs. Always striving for perfection, he has developed a strong reputation for high-quality gemstone jewelry and has a long list of retailers across Australia.

Opening a flagship jewelry gallery in America has been a vision of Bunny’s since visiting California on one of his many trips to the US. In 2011, he made this dream a reality with the launch of what would be the first of four Made In Earth jewelry galleries.

Bunny’s positivity, passion and drive are an inspiration to those around him and this energy is evident in the magical gallery spaces, exquisite jewelry and his knowledgeable team of stylists.
