Embroidered icons is traditional Russian crafts, and here are the orthodox christian icons of our Godmother. Since ancient times, in Russia has lived the tradition of embroidering icons, and decorating them with rich salaries. As a rule, the material for such crafts – mother-of-pearl, gems, precious stones, and of course, beads. Russian artist Maria Nikolaevna Yantovskaya from the city of Ryazan, began to embroider more than 30 years ago. Besides, she came up with her own technique of icon embroider, which she teaches others. Each bead is sewn separately and together, as in the Byzantine mosaics, form the whole picture. Although these icons are made strictly according to the Orthodox canon, but still, within it there is a place for creativity – patterns of crystals, stones, and pearls or amber. In addition, such creativity makes every icon unique, just one of a kind masterpiece.
