Thanks for visiting my website!

My name is Thea.  I was born in Telavi, Georgia on March 4, 1979 I graduated Telavi Ketevan Iashvili Art School (1995) and Telavi State University, (2001). I am married and have a sons: Temuri (21),  Nika(11)  and Giga (7) I’m an artist, self-trained embroiderer and felt-maker. I have been embroidering since I was 5 years old.  My area of activity is a traditional Georgian and modern embroidery art, also I work on heraldic topics  (State, Kings and Noble coat-of-arms) and make impressive silk embroidered compositions. I do not follow any common embroidery or stitching pattern. I follow my self- imaginary embroidery technique and create it afterward. All these works are  made by my fantasy and materials used are handmade felt, silk, cotton, golden and silver threads.
