A background in contemporary jewellery led to the establishment of one of Auckland’s now iconic design stores. Mana was set up and is run by Tanya Bentley, and with the help of her amazing staff, they strive to bring the best of New Zealand art to you. There is a strong focus on celebrating New Zealand made products, outstanding service and customer satisfaction. We hope to see you soon.

Tanya Bentley

Many years of selling her work in other galleries lead the way for Tanya to launch the initiative for Mana and now many years down the road Mana is a frequent destination for many regular locals and international visitors returning to our fair shores. Tanya’s background is in contemporary jewellery, statement pieces are what she loves making, and there is a strong emphasis in her recent work with texture, the use of mixed metals and colourful precious gemstones.

The systems behind Tanya’s designs are an expansion of ideas, which usually create themselves from previous projects. Creating designs for her customers are at the heart of her work also, working with a customer to create their own interpretation of her designs into something of their own.
