Marianna Savaryn, Oksana Ivanochko & Maria Rypan, St. Demetrius, Toronto
Hard to believe the Beaded Icon Show & Sale came and went on Feb 6th! Marianna, an icon painter from Hamilton, came to see the Oksana's beaded icons. Good thing KONTAKT-TV came at 9 am for an interview because there were many holes on the pegboard by 1 pm! The "Beaded Icons by Oksana Ivanochko" feature will be airing Feb 26th, 1 pm EST on Omni 1 in Toronto. You'll be able to view it on-line at your leisure because programs are archived.
Gerdany by Oksana Ivanochko
Besides icons, Oksana had several different styles of gerdany for sale. The contemporary ones were popular, especially the star-like beadwork necklaces like the one above. Loomwoven medallions also flew.
Best wishes for good health and eyesight. May God grant her many happy years.
