Supporting Ukrainian Artisans

Marina is an Ukrainian beader who lives in Kyiv. Her designs in MariVirraPatterns clearly show her passion for loom and peyote beadwork. 

Many of her patterns are Southwestern inspired.  I really love how she offers this large collection of hers as bundles.  Also neat is her offering of narrower and longer designs specifically for hat bands. Not many designers do this. 

Shown here are some of my favorites. They range from the distinct white, black and red Ukrainian embroidery style designs to the thunderbirds! Magnifique!

Marina says :
I am inspired by the colors and style of different things and cultures all over the world and create new color combinations and ornaments.)
All this time I am in Kyiv. I continue to send the money I earn from patterns to the needs of the volunteers. I sometimes post photo reports on my Instagram @virra_ornament. We believe in victory and do not give up!
