Collection – SOLDIER OF LOVE

Soldier of Love, capsule collection
The collection is inspired by the complexity of life and all its imperfections. The white baroque river pearl is opposed to black onyx, the proper circle is broken and cracked, because nothing is perfect. The military-name plates and brass pearls that remind us of bullets evoke the fact that life is permeated by the smaller and larger battles that we experience everyday.The collection consists of necklaces, earrings and bracelets made of hand-cut and galvanized brass, river pearl and onyx. Every piece of jewelry is handmade in Croatia.

Little Wonder is a brand well known for its statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all made of natural materials such as linen, cotton, leather, hand-cut and galvanised industrial metals, semiprecious stones and other seemingly incompatible additions. This eclectic mixture of different materials and patterns is what characterizes Little Wonder jewellery, which includes a range of different collections such as leather necklaces Wild Child, Dreamcatcher necklaces, Pearlfall necklaces and many others. Every piece of Little Wonder 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. Little Wonder 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, ethnic prints, etc. 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.
