About

A bit about me...

Nature inspired, beautiful gemstones and your connection to nature.

Did you collect bits of shells, stones and feathers when you were a kid? I sure did! I have always loved stones and creating things.

I'm Mandie, the owner and designer of Mandana Studios. That's an unusual name you might be thinking! I was named after my Great Grandmother. The meaning of the name Mandana is Everlasting.
I like to infuse this quality in my designs, to create timeless and boundless works of art.

I started creating jewelry when I was a child, mostly for my mom. Of course she loved everything I made, lol You could say I've been refining my process for the last 40'ish years!
I started metalsmithing in 2010 and that's when my jewelry making got serious. I started to use sterling silver and gemstones. Then I decided that in order to be able to create the designs I really wanted to, I needed to cut my own gemstones.

Gemstones and natural elements are the focus in my designs. They connect me back to nature and bring back many fond memories of walks in the woods as a child, collecting shells on beach vacations and picking up feathers on hikes. When I was young, I had a growing stone collection; I collected rocks from everywhere I went. While wandering through forests, along beaches and exploring in caves, my pockets would always fill up with little treasures.

I bet you appreciated the tiny details in the stone, the colours and patterns that drew you to it in the first place. Maybe it was the shape or it had a sparkle to it, but you couldn't resist picking them up and taking it with you. Just like you, I feel that connection to nature, feel the energy and the beauty of the stones and the fond memories of your childhood passion.

Today, I still collect stones when I travel, and now I turn these stones into the gemstones I use in the jewelry I make. Some are finished polished gemstones and some I get as raw pieces of stone that I cut and polish myself. I can even use a stone you collected yourself that holds special meaning to you.

I took some silversmith classes at Mohawk College and that gave me the fundamental knowledge of silver-smithing and jewelry making. I have spent many years at the bench experimenting and perfecting my methods. I wanted to incorporate my love of stones and gemstones into my creations, so I also do my own lapidary work, allowing me to listen to the stone as I design, hear how it wants to be shaped and polished and created into a unique one of a kind work of art.

You can feel the love and energy I put into each piece I create. Each one I complete is an original and made just for you. I love to see how happy my clients are when they receive one of my pieces, and I love the collaboration of working together to design that special piece!

Contact me today to get started on your special piece of wearable art.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I welcome and encourage custom and personalized orders! It is my pleasure to make something total unique for you, as a collaboration of your ideas and specifications. Please contact me to discuss details.

Sizing details

Sizes and measurements are provided on each listing. If you have any other questions, please contact me.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your purchase will arrive to you boxed and in a gift bag, and packed inside of a bubble envelope. This is the safest way to ship small delicate items without a lot of weight. Multiple order items will be boxed together to keep shipping costs down. If you wish to have separate boxes please let me know your preference in the message to seller when placing your order.

Care instructions

Most of the pieces I make with gemstones have an antique patina added. These can be cleaned with soap and water and gently pat dry. Do not use commercial dip/liquid cleaners, they may harm the stones and will remove all patina. Do not wear your jewellery while swimming, or expose to other chemicals such as perfumes or lotions.

Shipping Address:

I will ship to the address in your (the buyer) Etsy profile. If the wrong shipping address is supplied by the buyer, and the buyer does not notify me before the shipment is dispatched, then the buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping the item again after it returns back to us. If the item is marked delivered by the postal service, I can not refund or reship.

Customs/Import Fees

The buyer is responsible for all customs fees, duties, and import charges that are levied at the time of delivery. Please contact your postal system for information about your country's fees.

Shipping times

All packages are shipped with tracking.

Domestic Shipping: Orders are shipped via Canada Post, with tracking number. Orders are shipped within 2 business days of your cleared payment, to the shipping address specified in Etsy/Paypal.

International Shipping: Orders are shipped via Canada Postal Service, First Class Mail, with tracking number. Orders are shipped within 2 business days of your cleared payment to the shipping address specified in Etsy/Paypal. Shipping times can not be guaranteed due to delays within the postal service.

Returns and exchanges

Etsy is somewhere between an art show and a flea market, but it's not the mall. As such, objects of art are personal and are not returnable unless substantial errors or omissions have been made in my descriptions. That being said, I want my clients to be happy, and, if you have purchased something as a gift and it is not well received, please contact me about an exchange or modification.
