I’ve been in love with LittleWonder jewellery for few years now.
I first bumped into KRUG, the little designer store in centre of Split, Croatia where I was astonished mostly with the jewellery although there are 3 more designers in KRUG promoting and selling other products, clothes and accessoires.
Selma Strkljevic Mravak, the name behind the #littlewonder brand, is making this powerful jewellery for confident women in her nice little atelier together with her husband who is helping with tougher metalwork. Every piece of Little Wonder jewellery is handmade with all Croatian natural materials like industrial metals, galvanised brass, different types and coloured leather or suede, cotton and linen fabrics and semiprecious stones and it is created with love and great precision. When I first got there I was a little bit afraid, but exited and happy as well. I had hundred questions and scenarios in my mind, but Selma led the dance and we made a great video and photos of the creation of the necklace.
Although she graduated Italian language and art history, Selma Strkljevic Mravak was always into knitting and handwork. After she published photos of her braceletsmade of rope and leather, materials she had around, on the social media, she received overwhelming feedback of her friends and family so she decided to give it a try. And this try was worth it. She made making unique and powerful jewellery into her profession.
Selma explains confidently: “The main philosophy behind the brand is a powerful impression and quality. Little Wonder jewellery is made for confident women who are not afraid to flirt with different styles but often opt for basic combinations with striking details.” I totally agree.
I now posses many Little Wonder pieces of jewellery because I find it timeless. I feel confident and strong wearing it, my outfit is not finished without it and it’s original, unique and after all home-and-handmade. If you just look at the photos, it is obvious that I can use it and reuse it all the time and with all styles. Casual, sport, fancy, glamorous, business or street style. It fits to them all. And it is more then fashionable and modern. It is wearable. It is timeless. It is Mediterranean.
