Welcome Liane By Design – HAND WOVEN WIRE JEWELRY

Liane By Design

I have always loved art and craft. Whether I made it, bought it or viewed it, the creation of handmade design and ornamentation is a process that is a key part of me being Me.

And while my designs are not made using traditional metallurgic processes, it is a technique that combines two great artisanal crafts: textile hand weaving and jewelry making, creating a totally unique look. Each stitch is as caringly done by hand, as a textile weaver would do at a loom or a jeweler would at a workbench.

I find inspiration from periods of the past: Baroque, Renaissance, Victorian and combine it with contemporary ideas to create jewelry with singular beauty that transcend time. The magical joining of opposites–Ying Yang.

I make my jewelry with fine gauge precious wire. I string the pearls and crystals on the wire first, then drop them in position as I hand weave the wire around a wood hand loom. This technique makes the pearls look like they are suspended in a cocoon of gold or silver.
My jewelry has a look of delicate beauty–like raindrops on rose petals or tinsel tossed on a tree.

“Like a human being, brands are unique, and so is yours. I’m is passionate about helping brands succeed. Once we start working together, I’ll first ask you in-depth questions, to ensure I have a thorough understanding of your brand, your goals, and the customers you’re trying to attract. Only then will I begin the design process, where I’ll visualize your one-of-a-kind brand characteristics and talents in your brand design, tailored to appeal to your ideal audience.

Read about the designer – Astrid Mueller

“Born in Switzerland, the land of Vitra chairs, famous type foundries, and the best chocolate in the world, Astrid Mueller, the creator of possibility, has a passion for design (and dessert)!

Astrid’s creative journey began at Swarovski with a position in graphic design. Although she didn’t know it at the time, it was there that she glimpsed her future when she created a series of crystal tattoo jewelry pieces that were sold worldwide.

Eager to perfect her craft, Astrid bid Swarovski a fond farewell, packed her bags and set out to take graphic design classes in Zurich, Hamburg, London, and, finally, New York, where she studied at Parsons.

After launching her design studio in 2006, Astrid quickly found success illustrating for Marie Claire, Diesel and Swarovski.  Though she was fulfilling a lifelong goal, a love for Lucite and old Hollywood glamour thrummed in Astrid’s soul.

In 2011, she relocated to an island off the coast of Alaska to live with her sweetheart, D, grow her design business, and follow her dream of possibility. Whenever she can, Astrid travels home to Switzerland, stopping along the way in cities such as New York, Seattle and Los Angeles for inspiration, as well as to indulge in her taste for cozy hotel rooms, transparent rings and clever design.”   SEE MORE HERE

Possibility gives back —>  “When I close my eyes and think about possibility, I see a woman in a chic summer dress standing on a beautiful ocean viewpoint, a warm breeze playing with her hair. She’s feeling beautiful, grateful for all the positive things in her life, and giddy about all the wonderful things to be. This is the feeling of possibility that I infuse in every piece I design. We can allbe this successful woman who not only works hard, but also enjoys amazing moments of indulgence. A woman who feels gorgeous – which we all are. It’s my mission to pass along this karma to every woman who wears possibility. It’s my hope that possibility’s pieces add a little touch of positivity and jet-set glamour to every day and feel like a little talisman of empowerment, good luck, and the air of possibility…because you never know.”

Astrid Mueller graced the Real NYC Designer Market back in May – what a gift indeed to have such a special artist, creator, maker, designer, illustrator, visionary, writer, branding genius, inspirational guru and a beautiful women (with an amazing work ethic).  What does Astrid not do? 😉


“Most of us have traveled to New York, so most likely you’ve seen the city’s most famous hot spots. If you’re craving more of an insider glimpse, the next time you visit the Big Apple you may like to consider popping in at an Artist and Designer’s market, a pop-up shop or street fair where New Yorker’s go to find unique jewelry, fashion, or gift items. There are many such markets, such as Crafts on Columbus on the Upper West Side, The Market New York in Greenwich Village or The Real NYC Designer’s Market on the hip Mulberry Street:
