Charlie Hunnam's Longtime Love: Who is Morgana McNelis?

Charlie Hunnam, known for his role as Jax Teller in Sons of Anarchy, has been in a committed relationship with Morgana McNelis for over 17 years. The couple has been together for a long time, but despite this, they have never tied the knot. McNelis has made a name for herself in the jewelry industry, and here’s what we know about her.

Early Life and Career

Morgana McNelis was born in Georgia in 1983 and discovered her passion for jewelry at a young age. At 20, she started taking classes on jewelry-making, crafting, and lost-wax metal casting. Eventually, she became an apprentice to a master jeweler and metalsmith, learning all about classical fine jewelry crafting techniques.

After completing classes in art, fashion, and business, McNelis launched her own jewelry line, featuring unique and innovative designs. However, her first business venture with her sister Marina Milori had to shut down during the 2008 financial crisis.

Launch of Maison de Morgana

Despite the setback, McNelis continued to pursue her passion and launched the Los Angeles-based jewelry firm, Maison de Morgana in 2012. Her Black Magik collection, which featured exquisite rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces made of premium brass and white bronze, was inspired by the art of the Ottoman Empire and Ancient Egypt, as well as designers Riccardo Tisci and Alexander McQueen.

Celebrities such as Winona Ryder, Zac Efron, and Maggie Siff, who played Hunnam’s on-screen love interest Tara on Sons of Anarchy, have all worn her designs. McNelis’ jewelry has also been featured in many publications, including British GQ, Accessories Magazine, Red Book, and Us Weekly.

Acting and Charity Work

McNelis has also dabbled in acting, appearing in short films such as 187: The McKenna Murders and Acting 101. She has also worked behind the camera as a costume assistant. Additionally, McNelis has shown her philanthropic side through her jewelry line by donating a percentage of her BC Armor collection sales to the Boot Campaign charity that helps war veterans and encourages patriotism.

McNelis is a very private person, and not much is known about her personal life, apart from her long-term relationship with Charlie Hunnam. The couple owns a farm in Southern California, where they live a sustainable life with an organic garden and a menagerie of animals, including chickens, ducks, and donkeys.

Despite the lack of a formal marriage certificate, Charlie Hunnam has always been vocal about his love and commitment to McNelis. He has emphasized that he doesn’t need a piece of paper from the government to prove his love for her.
