Jewelry Made in Earth

Made in Earth rings in the storefront window that lured me in!

As I continue to explore LA and all the interesting neighborhoods that surround me, I always come across a unique gem of a store that inspires me to share it with my readers.  One day I was strolling down Abbott Kinney when I stopped in front of a beautiful jewelry store that had various colorful pieces in the window.  That’s all I needed for me to walk in and check out what else there was to offer at Made in Earth.  Little did I know that what I walked into was a floor of sand surrounded by illuminating stones.

Inside Made in Earth where the floor is all sand – quite unique

A notice at the entrance informing you of a sand-filled floor, and flip flops for your convenience

Made in Earth was founded by Bunny Bedi, who was inspired by the beauty of nature and vast array of colors and patterns where his designs are all about gemstones.  Established in Australia in 1999, Bunny has developed a strong reputation for high-quality gemstone jewelry and opened the flagship gallery in Venice in June 2011.  Fitting perfectly with the beach vibe, the sand on the floor was welcomed and you can even borrow a pair of flip flops to browse around the store.  There were so many lovely pieces and I enjoy his sense of fusing color into mostly everything!

Ruby Zoisite Pendant

One of my favorite pieces

There is meaning behind some of the stones (ex. Stone of meditation) and each one is so beautiful to look at even better to wear.  There are great pieces for a red carpet look, everyday wear, or for that special occasion where you want to “bring out the pearls.”  For a one-of-a kind experience, I suggest you check out Made in Earth and enjoy all the colorful gemstones and sand in your toes.

Summertime & Accessorizing is Easy

When it comes to adding the final touch to an outfit, accessorizing can make all the difference. Summertime is here and it’s even easier to accentuate your look with jewelry of all types and colors. I came across some new jewelry designers you should definitely put on your radar and add to your collection!

REBECCA Jewelry – Skulls
Headed to a concert or want to add some edge to your look? REBECCA jewelry has the perfect skull inspired pieces from her Manhattan Collection to make you rock out! Made in Italy, REBECCA is internationally renowned for its trend setting, high-end fashion jewelry. Alessandro Testi created the Rebecca collection by utilizing a proprietary 18-karat gold plating process, semiprecious gems and innovative designs. I love the touch of color added onto the earrings and the bling on the skulls. Any of this jewelry would look great with a leather jacket paired with jeans and a silky top!

Dalla nonna, which means “from the grandmother” in Italian, is a jewelry line designed by Rebecca Richards and Jess Bohrer. It is inspired by vintage pieces passed down from their mothers and grandmothers. This unique collection can be worn daily for those who like a signature piece to wear all the time or for a vintage feel.  Some of their most popular pieces are below:

The Calendar Necklace is their signature piece, and Hilary Duff wears one that commemorates the birthday of her son.

The little letter collection is for people who want something more delicate but still meaningful. Charlize Theron wears a “j” necklace for her baby.

The newest collection, the portafortuna collection, means good luck. Kourtney Kardashian has not taken off her hoops in weeks, Emily VanCamp and Zoe Saldana are fans of the stacking rings, and Emma Stone wears the studs.

Now that you’re all set for summer with different options of jewelry to pair with your outfits. Enjoy and don’t hold back from accessorizing!
