This is a very special set that is not going to be repeated or custom made another time. A real One Of A Kind by IGMA Fellows Mariella Vitale and Valeria Bonomi.
Let us say something about the amount of work and skills required to make it.
Hat and bag are crocheted with a 0.5 mm hook and sewing thread. Black braids are made with sewing thread too in Macrame technique. Bag is openable because there's a little magnet hidden between the stitches. Flowers have been made cutting petals one by one and heat formed to give them a more natural look. More than 120 petals cut out by scissors. They also sparkle thanks to black Swarosky crystals in the center, pictures don't give them justice, unfortunately.
Black suede used to make the shoes and all other details is thinned by working the piece of lamb skin by hands to achieve the thickness of few microns. Buckles on shoes and purse are made by hand and then drilled to insert the crystals.
Fashion "Jackie Kennedy style" glasses are painted layer after layer with an airbrush to give them a smooth finish. Shaded lenses in resin.
The perfect Martini dish is made by the very talented and lovely Jeanie Brownlie Anderson of Maya Miniatures and it is not included in the set.
