A woman makes incredibly detailed miniature dollhouses inside walnut shells, conch shells and sea urchin shells.

Zhao Jingjing, from Guangzhou, China, has been creating handcrafted goods since she was a child.

She began focusing on the miniature dollhouses this March, after finding inspiration from a walnut shell.

Her first diorama took about two days to make - as she sought to create perfection in the tiny walnut shell.

Zhao decorates her miniature dollhouses with various pieces of tiny furniture and interior design pieces, including metal chairs, wooden easels, paper books, metal lampshades and cloth curtains.

She described that her passion can be time-consuming - with some of the more intricate dollhouses, like the one inside the sea urchin, taking up two full weekends.

However, Zhao is incredibly proud and happy with her wonderful work.

“I think that every girl dreams of being a princess and wishes to live in a castle," she said.

“It feels like I’ve made that dream come true by making the dollhouses - it’s as if I were living in it. It makes me feel very happy."
