The Mandar collection is up on the website for your perusal!
Mandar is another name of the Lord Ganesha who is a supremely powerful God in the Hindu religion. Ganesha is known for his elephant head, and is one of most worshipped deities in Hinduism. He is thought to be "he who found the divinity within himself". He is believed to be the balance between force and kindness, and between power and beauty. In keeping with this vibe the Mandar necklaces are for men and woman, and are intended to help balance and empower the owner. They are also intended especially for men, but look dope on women. "I often wear Justin's necklaces layered and looped together, when I feel intimidated...to get my strength on, feel safe, and make a statement." Made with love by me.

Her experiences living in Europe and traveling throughout southeast Asia have deeply impacted her world view, and thus her jewelry designs. Her experience teaching in South Los Angeles also served as food for her artistic story. Maryanna believes that a persons story is the most important thing one can offer, and strives to make her jewelry serve as protection for each unique individuals journey. " I have taken bits and pieces of the people, culture, and stories I have witnessed in my life and created Marylambb. My jewelry is literally a work of love, born of my dreams, conceived of my mind, and finally made with my hands. I believe that times are changing, and that style has become a vital way to express ones individuality and beliefs." Maryanna currently lives and works with her long time companion and fellow designer Justin Wilfong in Los Angeles, California.
