Welcome to Little Muse Designs! I create my unique, beadwoven jewelry by stitching the smallest Japanese and Czech glass seed beads into intricate mandala patterns with a needle and high quality beading thread. From my palette of literally hundreds of seed bead colors, I individually stitch each bead into intricate designs. Using the finest quality materials, I create styles that are durable, unique, versatile. You'll love wearing them!

Each piece is given a woman's name that identifies a specific colorway. Discover the different names and their unique meanings.

I am always working on new designs too. Please check back often!

About littlemusedesigns

Sales 378
On Etsy since 2008

Little Muse Designs by Anthe Wosczyna creates intricate bead woven jewelry based on the Mandala.

'Mandala' is Sanskrit for circle, community, connection. A circular design containing concentric geometric forms, it symbolizes the universe, totality or wholeness and the relationship of humans with the cosmos.

“By examining my surroundings closely, hidden designs and colorways have magically sprung to life.“

--Anthe

My interest in intricacy has evolved into individually hand weaving small glass beads, gemstones, natural pearls and Swarovski crystals into richly diversified designs in a multitude of colors. Each piece is handcrafted in my studio at the foot the San Gabriel mountains in Southern California—a beautiful area and the source of inspiration for my designs.

I create one of a kind jewelry for you to treasure.

Shipping

TIME -------

After payment is received, all in-shop orders are mailed within 1-3 business days (excluding holidays) by USPS Priority Mail. Custom orders are given an individual time quote for completion and shipment. Domestic orders ship free and include the materials to wrap your purchase securely (and suitable for gift-giving!) as well as insurance and tracking :-)

Holidays have increased postal traffic. Please allow enough time for shipment during busy times of the year.

Need that special item quickly? Rush shipment is available for your in-shop selection. There may be an additional charge for rush orders of custom items. Please contact me for available shipping options and costs prior to purchase. Be sure to provide me with your zip code.
________________________________________________________________

ADDRESS -------

Little Muse Designs ships to the address on your Paypal or credit card account. Please verify that this address is correct before finalizing payment.

If you prefer a different shipping address for yourself or a gift recipient, please let me know in the 'Note to Seller' section at time of purchase.
________________________________________________________________

PACKAGING -------

Your purchase ships in a sturdy gift box inside a USPS Priority Mail cardboard box.

When appropriate, multiple items ship in the same gift box in order to conserve packing material and reduce shipping cost.

If you would like a separate box for each item, please let me know. I will be happy to accomodate you.
________________________________________________________________

DOMESTIC

Orders within the U.S. are mailed via USPS Priority Mail and include Delivery Confirmation.

A confirmation email will be sent by PayPal when your order ships. This email will include your Delivery Confirmation number. Please note that this number is not a step-by-step tracking number and is not updated until your package reaches its destination.

If a package with Delivery Confirmation is reported missing but is confirmed received via the tracking number, I cannot issue a refund or replacement.

________________________________________________________________

INTERNATIONAL

International orders under $100 are sent via USPS First Class International/Airmail. This is the most economical shipment method but it does not provide insurance or tracking of your package. Little Muse Designs cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged packages that are sent by USPS First Class International. Please contact me if you would like to upgrade your shipment method to Priority Mail/Registered, Express Mail, Global Express Guaranteed or include insurance.

International orders over $100 are delivered by UPS. Please contact me for specific shipping rates to your country.

International customers are responsible for all fees, taxes and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries.

I am required by federal law to state the value of an item on the customs form. Please do not request that the package be shipped as a gift as it would be illegal to do so.
________________________________________________________________

Additional policies and FAQs

CUSTOM ORDERS -------

Custom orders can be created from any of the designs in my shop or 'sold' section.

If you prefer a design with a different metal (including 14k gold), necklace length or need a matching set (wonderful for brides and bridesmaids, holiday gifts and other special occasions), please contact me.

Sensitive ears? I offer hypoallergenic niobium earwires (in choice of antique copper and oxidized silver colors) as well as 14k gold.

Ears not pierced? Not to worry. A clip-on style is available.

Once we agree on a design, its cost and completion time, I will make a reserved listing for your custom order. Little Muse Designs requires 100% payment prior to creating custom orders.

Please note that custom orders are not returnable/refundable.
________________________________________________________________

GIFT WRAP

Packaging is simple, attractive and suitable for gift-giving.

A complimentary, beautifully handwritten gift card can be included with your selection to the lucky recipient. Just let me know in the 'Notes to Seller' section at time of purchase that your item is a gift and provide me with your message. Also include the gift recipient's mailing address.
________________________________________________________________

WHOLESALE -------

Little Muse Designs offers wholesale terms to select retailers. Please contact me for details.
________________________________________________________________

PHOTOGRAPHY/DIMENSIONS -------

My jewelry is carefully photographed to ensure that you see the intricate detail and attention given to each piece. As a result, objects may appear larger in photos than they are in person. Colors may also vary with individual monitors.

Please take a moment to read the descriptions and measurements as noted in the listings.

If you have any questions concerning an item, kindly contact me prior to purchase.

Selected pieces worn by the models in my photos are from their personal collection. I just want to show you how lovely a piece can look on you!
________________________________________________________________

JEWELRY CARE -------

My creations are hand-crafted from the highest quality materials. Please use care when handling and storing your jewelry. By avoiding exposure to perfumes, water, cosmetics and hairspray, your delicate treasures will provide lasting enjoyment.

You can maintain your jewelry's shine by wearing it often and storing it in an air-tight plastic bag. Gently buffing the metal with a jeweler's polishing cloth can also restore its shine. Oxidized sterling silver and antique brass should be left to develop a mellow patina.
________________________________________________________________

IMAGES/DESCRIPTIONS -------

Little Muse Designs jewelry is not to be resold, unless you have an established wholesale account with me.

Images and text are not to be used for commercial purposes without my permission.
