About The Brand
Ana Mari Ortega is a Miami based brand that creates meticulously crafted and small production jewelry and handbags. Because we love beautiful things and we love our fans, we made a strategic decision to forego wholesaling and present our line directly to our customers, thus offering pieces made with impeccable materials, but at accessible price points. By selling directly to our consumers, we avoid store-level mark-ups and stay closer to the community that helped us become who we are today.
About Ana Mari
Ana Mari began her design career during her undergraduate studies at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. A Miami native, Ana Mari was not a fan of the winter months and took classes in metalsmithing and jewelry design to make the most of her time indoors. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in International Affairs, Ana enrolled at the Miami International University of Art & Design to continue her studies in fashion accessory design. It was here that she expanded her work to include luxury handbags.
Ana is passionate about her community, coupling her identity as an entrepreneur with work as a volunteer serving her community. She serves on the board of City Year Miami, an AmeriCorps education focused non-profit. She has also donated several of her AMO pieces to fundraisers for charitable organizations including the Miami Children's Hospital, Women of Tomorrow, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The American Cancer Society, and The Fisher Island Philanthropic Fund.
