The Legacy Collection
It's your time to be outspoken
Mana Boutique honors that spirit in you. Dedicated to your craft, your causes, and your family, this jewelry collection was designed with you in mind.
The Legacy Collection is the fulfillment of a dream for the collection’s founding artist Charmaine Taylor. She witnessed the injustices of apartheid as a young girl and later, the transformation of her home country in South Africa.
The square shape of the pendant and drop earrings are formed with the intention to mirror the walls of confinement of the political prisoners on Robben Island – one being Nelson Mandela, the first black President of South Africa. Just as the walls of confinement and mindset came down to yield a path for the man who became a global beacon of hope for people around the world, the jewelry reminds us that through resistance and struggle, strength and freedom are gained. Their colors symbolize all the tribes and languages of the South African people – The Rainbow Nation.
