Our Story

Mannaz Designs was founded in 2017 to create elegant, unique, and stylish jewelry. The word Mannaz represents the self. Everything starts from within; growth, change, relationships & spirituality.  Our jewelry is created to transform and complete your style, enhance your mood and personally accessorize your outfits.

Crystal beads, chalcedonic quartz, pave cubic zirconia, gemstones, water pearls, leather, tassels, and symbolic charms are hand-crafted and influenced with the designer’s Latin flair and style to create necklaces, earrings & bracelets that make the artistic Mannaz Designs most extraordinary.

Maruja Azar Leanos was born in Caracas, Venezuela and has been living in the US for the last 15 years.

"The jewelry I design is inspired by growing up in Venezuela, my love for art, color, and fashion.  Latin women love to accessorize, follow fashion trends, create their own fashion trends, and radiate beauty. Each piece is designed with passion and inspiration from colors, shapes, and the symbolism and meaning of the beads and charms to create unique jewelry that helps you feel beautiful, confident and empowered."
