Splendid golden tatting lace set, made entirely by hand.

The necklace has a pendant in the shape of a small crow's nest embellished with turquoises and beads. The earrings are decorated with beads and crystals.

My emotion:

Skilled hands intent on embroidering precious details: this image accompanied my childhood, like that of many children here in Sicily.

Under the clear light of the skylight of her house, my grandmother embroidered, with patience and precision, her precious laces, and I watched her, in admiration, give life to a delicate beauty of shapes and colors.

Embroidery, in Sicily and beyond, was a hobby for women to cultivate but sometimes also a means to support the family income or to become economically independent.

The manufacturing of tatting lace is still widespread throughout the island today.
