My Dear Friends! I am opening this line to support Ukranian people in need . All money from this collection will be 100% donation. Count on your big hearts!
I was born in small city of Gorlovka and couldn’t guess that one day it would be “famous” in a sad way ….
When I left my city for new adventure it was Ukraine and ALWAYS will be Ukraine in my heart!
But I feel myself American and very proud to be just for this things ….
My tools are the shuttles. They come in many different varieties and are made from different materials. I really love wooden silver and amber, which I just recently discovered. Many thanks to the master from Kaliningrad who made these wonderful shuttles for me
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR WOMEN TO DO NEEDLEWORK.
Today, all over the world there is a surge in various women’s handicrafts, despite the fact that everything can be bought in the store. And this is not accidental at all. Women, apparently, subconsciously feel that they are very carried away by male activity, the development of external space.
Various activities can alter the level of hormones in the blood. With active, “male” activity, there is an excessive release of androgens (male sex hormones). If a woman is engaged in hard physical labor, her figure changes, becomes rough, heavy. Even when she just leads, the lightness in the body is lost, the softness in the voice disappears, the movements become fast and sharp.
And when a woman knits, sews, embroiders, creates, then she comes into harmony with her feminine nature, and as a result, the work of the female hormonal system improves. The activation of fine motor skills evens out the hormones in the body.
Any handicraft is a useful activity for the female psyche. It is the performance of the same monotonous movements that helps to calm down, relax. Monotonous and monotonous movements cause changes in the psyche. The heart rate changes, the tension in the muscles and the nervous system goes away. There comes a natural state of meditation, distraction from problems. Needlework is better than anything to help you cope with anxiety and internal stress and get out of a state of stress.
Needlework helps a woman to stop. Just be and just live. No analysis, no action. Doing needlework, we inform our body that everything is fine, there is enough time, there is no need to run anywhere, there is also no one to save. Everything is fine and everything is calm.
Handicraft helps us feel grounded. Feel yourself here and now. Here is our home, here are our hands, and they create something beautiful.
Needlework is a very peaceful business: no struggle, no battles, no analysis. And it creates such a stable and sustainable worldview, which is so important for every woman. We begin to perceive life as it is. We learn to love what is. We begin to understand that happiness is not at all loud events and fireworks. And more often there is peace and quiet in the soul.
Handicraft activates the right hemisphere of the brain, creative, out-of-the-box thinking and develops artistic taste. You learn to combine colors, textures and materials. This is very important, especially if you haven’t found your favorite business yet. Start doing handicrafts, and who knows where this road will take you.
The same pattercan look completely different. Just a little imagination, favorite strings of beads and, of course, inspiration!
I worked on this necklace 3 months and like it happens with everything I created …. There is a point when necklace gets a sole and start being it’s own .
It sound weird but I cannot control that process , and know when it happens – My artworks dictate me what they want, disagreed with my decisions and even choose how they want to be named .
I feel myself door opener 🤗 in all this magic!
