About the brand
Our Conscious Initiative
Little Wonder is a brand well known for its statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all made of materials such as linen, cotton, leather, hand-cut, galvanized and 24K gold plated brass, sterling silver, semiprecious stones and other seemingly incompatible additions. This eclectic mixture of different materials and patterns characterizes Little Wonder jewellery. Every piece of jewellery is handmade with love and great precision. The main philosophy behind the brand are powerful impression and quality. LW jewellery is made for confident women who are not afraid to flirt with different styles but often opt for basic combinations with striking details. Collections are produced completely in the designer's studio in Croatia. Every piece is handmade by the designer herself with extreme care. Every collection is the reflection of the designer's current inspiration, such as nature, architecture, Mediterranean, constellations, and ethnic prints.
Selma Štrkljević Mravak was born in 1984 in Split, a vibrant Mediterranean city on the Croatian coast. From early childhood, she was surrounded by art, fashion design and constant desire of her family to create. Her father was an artist and her grandmother was a pioneer of knitting at that time in Split. She graduated art history and Italian language and literature in Zagreb. During her studies, the theory and her creative side were in constant struggle. She always wanted to do something with her own hands and so she began creating jewellery. From the very beginnings in 2010, when Selma founded the brand, until now, when her brand has grown and gained international recognition, Selma has been managing it with the same love and devotion. The label has been featured on the cover of Croatian Grazia and Diva magazines and on the pages of British Vogue, Australian Women's Health, Croatian Elle and Croatian Grazia. In 2013 Selma presented her brand at one of the most important design exhibitions in Croatia, Dan D, where she exhibited the collection ‘Connection’ made in cooperation with young and prominent Croatian designer Vedrana Mastela. In 2014 Selma was chosen among 49 designers from 21 countries to participate in the exhibition ‘Complete Parts’ in Shin Gallery at Manhattan, New York. In 2014 Little Wonder also exhibited at the Month of Design in Ljubljana, at the Brands and Signs exhibition. Their motto is “Recycle and be honest".
