At first sight the weaving art seems to be very difficult. But Marija Ivanovna asserts that even first years schoolchildren could master this style of art.

In her opinion enamel is very popular in Europe. At first there is a metal processing on which the drawing is put. It could be ready-made pictures or separate elements for creation of decorative panels, jewels and even icons.
