We are the music makers and We are the dreamers of dreams
My name is Mariella and I'm the "Unusual Fantasy Funny" (and a little crazy too) mind behind the MUFFA creations!
I’m born on 31th of July, like Harry Potter, and there must be a little magic in my hands!!
I love making miniature thread animals, bears, fairies, gnomes and elves that I create with my 0.4 mm hook and sewing thread and (I swear) I don't use a magnifyier.
My passion for small, cute, sweet and crafted things started when I was a child and my granny taught me how to knit and crochet at the age of six.
I also went to school by the Nuns and, as a good girl, I had to learn to embroider too, and the back side of the work had to be perfect! (I think Nuns grow paranoic crafters!!).
I had the idea of MUFFA Miniatures a long time ago when I saw for the first time a miniature crochet bear on the internet.
It was like a "BANG" in my mind, I could crochet something different than what I learnt from granny (doilies and blankets) and in that moment MUFFA Miniatures came to life!
Since then a lot of little animals, faeries, dolls are born and live in different countries around the world.
What else I can say? I love liquorice ice cream, old movies and musicals, Star Trek and Doctor Who.
Hey in the picture it's me and yes, my hair is white ... I'm wise ... or maybe it was the Nuns???
... live long and Prosper ...
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Mariella, from sunny Italy, the ONE and ONLY behind MUFFA Miniatures, and since 2014 IGMA Fellow (yeah!!).
The items I create are intended for adult collectors only, as they are rather small and vulnerable in the curious hands of a child, to chew on or to swallow!
They are OOAK (One-Of-A-Kind) creations, perfect for any DOLLHOUSE or MINIATURE COLLECTION!
