Frances Glessner Lee (1878-1962) was a millionaire heiress and Chicago society dame with a very unusual hobby for a woman raised according to the strictest standards of nineteenth century domestic life: investigating murder. And she did this through a most unexpected medium: dollhouse-like dioramas.
Miniature brass and silver magnifying glass I just finished. It’s hand fabricated with lathe turned brass and a bezel set glass cabochon.
I’m really getting into making miniatures and pushing my metal working skills further. Since graduating from school and not having access to a full metals studio I’ve had to learn how to get by on less. It’s finally feeling like less of a pain and more of a challenge! I’m super happy with this piece. :)
I have been making again, this time I have made a full English breakfast, complete with saucy beans! Every piece was hand sculpted by me by hand, half way through making the beans I wish I had never started!!!! all available to buy in my shop NOW: www.tuckshop.etsy.com
