HeARTfully Yours unveils Painted Beauties – Made in Ukraine with Love collection

HeARTfully Yours premieres its Painted Beauties – Made in Ukraine, with Love collection at the upcoming Dallas Gift Market in the Patrick & Co wholesale showroom, June 22-28, 2022, followed by the Atlanta Gift Market, July 12-18, 2022 in the Schauben & Company showroom.

These latest designs reflect the traditional Ukraine folk art as seen on needlepointed costumes and pysanky, their famous Easter egg art, and bear the name of the artisans making them, such as Kalyna, Maxym, Danylko, and Ninya. There are a dozen new designs in this collection. HeARTfully Yours is Mr. Radko’s first collection in 15 years, and the only new ornaments designed personally by him.

“Despite Ukraine’s war-torn condition, they are not beat. Their economy may be shot, but they are doing their best to keep working,” said Christopher Radko, acclaimed ornament artist who designed these new pieces as a direct way of helping Ukrainian artists and glass ornament makers put food on their tables.

“I realize no one else is doing this, but the Ukrainian ornament makers need to survive and feed their families. What better way to directly support them, than to give them the opportunity to do what they do best. It’s a very dark time in the Ukraine, but this is a way to share beauty, and provide direct relief and income to them,” said Radko. “These shining ornaments are the light in the darkness.”

The ornaments are made by small family workshops in central and western Ukraine, out of line from direct fire. Painted Beauties will ship this fall from HeARTfully Yours. For more information, visit HeARTfullyYours.com.
