Rosella From Italy Created 5 Mirrors

If there had been a prize for the most industrious entrant, then Rosella from Italy would have been the winner by a huge margin. You saw two of her entries which were selected as finalists which is an astonishing achievement in its own right - what I and you didn't know is that Rosella actually produced 5 entries for the competition! But it was these two different takes on the theme that caught the judges' eyes. The entry above is a purse for a mirror and the one below is a more complex covered mirror, both worked in cross-stitch. Above we see a pretty woman's face as if reflected in a mirror, cleverly hinting at what can be found within the purse. Below the design is more formal, calling up memories of Florentine Renaissance motifs. Personally, I would love to see more work by Rosella.
