Melania La Via was drawn to embroidery and crochet thanks to her grandmothers, who used to sit outside in the garden, chatting while cross-stitching or crocheting. So, she went on to study the main ancient, traditional techniques of that so-called “women’s work”, and later decided to put her skills to good use, creating home furnishings, accessories, dresses and bijoux, bridal or venetian-style bouquets, implementing a variety of techniques such as traditional embroidery, bobbin lace, macramé, crochet, filet, needle lace, gold thread embroidery and “chiacchierino”, often revisited in a more contemporary key. Today she specializes in jewellery making, mixing unconventional materials with beads, precious stones, pearls and corals. All her pieces are absolutely one of a kind, extremely refined and personalized, also available on commission.
