Meet Bunny Bedi of Made In Earth in Venice Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bunny Bedi.

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 establishing Made 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 many 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.

Has it been a smooth road?
Not necessarily. Working in a foreign country always has its challenges. Understanding new laws and regulations with business operations is a tedious process. Something as simple as throwing a party can be tricky!

When we had our opening party for our Venice Beach gallery I didn’t know we needed a license to have alcohol even though it was a closed/private event.

Then there are simple differences that take time to get used to like driving on the other side of the road, working in inches and pounds. It’s like learning a new language!

Working between two countries is taxing with jetlag and days lost travelling but I love what I do so it is all worth it!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Made In Earth story. Tell us more about the business.
We specialize in hand crafted sterling silver jewelry set with natural gemstones. Our pieces are thoughtfully designed and crafted to showcase the stones as their centerpiece. Our jewelry galleries are a huge part of the Made In Earth experience, as much as the jewelry itself. From the moment you enter our gallery space we take you on a journey! We have an enormous collection with each gallery showcasing over 200 gemstones, crystals, meteorites and fossils.

It is important for us to be up-to-date with knowledge about our gemstones, metaphysical properties as well as gemological information. Our goal is to our team who then imparts that knowledge to our clients. We want our clients to discover and connect with their jewelry and have something they can not only wear for its beauty but also cherish for a lifetime.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We are expanding in the US and looking at other cities and as we deal in natural gemstones they never go out of fashion and will always be sought and cherished for a life time!
