The Mandala Way
Ready to Manifest
Our clothing boasts feminine shapes without skimping on comfort. Each piece offers a beautiful silhouette for every occasion. We hand-pick our fashion-conscious dresses and clothing from talented, new and seasoned artists from all over the world.
We are Based in Historic Newport, Rhode Island
Historic Newport remains a summertime East Coast gem with sandy beaches and vacationer-style nightlife. You will find both clam shack and competitive culinary experiences, tourist traps, and genuinely fine boutiques and galleries. It’s a tourist town where locals love to say, “Oh, it’s way better in the winter.” Nonetheless, it has been drawing people to its shores since the Gilded Age and doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. We hope you make The Mandala Way a stop on the tour as we feature local art and culture and can tell you where to get the best clam chowder and lobster roll!

What We Love
The World's Oldest Art Form
All jewelry is made in the United States (most right here in RI). Concepts span from delicate healing crystal charms to jewelry made from transformed artifacts. Every piece is touched by the artist, intentionally crafted, and considers the wearer at every turn. The Mandala Way views jewelry as a talisman to be worn with intention.
Find Your New Staples
These one-of-a-kind woodwork pieces preserve the original tree’s detail while offering real-life applications. Bath bars, cutting boards, charcuterie trays, shelves, and sculptures invite just enough nature into the home.
Grandmother Knows Best
Amy Qugly’s wicker handbags—adorned with her original paintings printed onto fabric—are then hand-quilted onto the fronts. She uses her grandmother’s passed-down technique along with her vintage fabric collection. Her still-life floral imagery is informed by her career as a professional garden designer.
Our ceramics are handmade in Southern Florida, often glazed with melted sea glass over organic shapes. Each piece is different, but together they suggest warm conversation, realizations, and appreciation for homemade food shared amongst friends.
When Life Gives You COVID, Make Art
The Mandala Way features art that has grown out of the Covid confines. These paintings depict vibrant, stylized portraits and symbols that hint at parallel lives lived by the artists’ characters.
Small batched candles made in house, mixed and fragranced in our back craft room and mixed with all good intention. Each candle is held in vintage glassware that has found its favorite use.
June 29, 2021A blog about building a boutique based on the mandala’s sacred geometry that is as old as old can be, but as relevant as anything should be. We connect makers and artists from around the world who imbue their work with intention and have been brought together in this small — sometimes frigid — corner of the Universe.
