Marketplace Seller Profile
Amanda ‘Mana’ Paulsen is the owner, designer, and maker behind Mana Made. The brand was first conceived in Southern California, where Mana lived for a better part of a decade and started designing jewelry. Originally from the East End of Long Island, she brought her jewelry practice back to the east coast and acquired metal fabrication techniques by working under several jewelry artists at metal arts studios in NYC. A native New Yorker with a west coast soul, Mana's studio is currently based in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn where each piece of jewelry is designed and fabricated. All pieces are designed and sustainably produced by hand using recycled metals. Mana Made first launched with "The Classics" - a collection of timeless and simple everyday wardrobe staples. The most recent collection, "Retro ReMade" is comprised of pieces inspired by vintage finds, often incorporating remnants of antique pieces.
