Scottish miniaturist David Edwards makes incredibly intricate 1/12 scale violins that are just 1.5 inches long. The miniatures are modeled after Stradivarius violins and each one takes a few months to make. Edwards quit a career as a classical musician in 1983 in order to become a full time miniaturist. In addition to the violins he makes all manner of miniature handmade household goods. Edwards is now 76 years old and has “reduced” his daily work schedule to 7 to 8 hours.
