Icons embroidered with gems and beads. Since anсient times in Russia skilled women embroidered hand-painted icons. Some of them by overseas beads, and others often by pearls and sawed nacre, flavoring this hand-made miracle with jewels and semi-precious stones. Russian craftswoman and talented artist Maria Yantovskaya started to embroider more then 30 years ago. She invented her own techniques of embroidery of icons, and then taught the others. And those works, that you can see here, are made in her techniques – every bead is sewn separately, but all together, like the Byzantine mosaic, they form an integral picture. And though these icons are made strictly on an orthodox canon, nevertheless there is a place for creativity even in its frames – to decorate with stones, or pearls, or amber. So the each icon is a unique one, the only one.
