Слава Україні! Glory to Ukraine!
When I met my partner Trevana, one of the questions I asked on our first date was “What’s your favourite family tradition?” I’ll never forget the way their face lit up as they described Ukrainian-Canadian Christmas Eve dinner. The days leading up knowing exactly when to make what dish, the significance of each, and the dedicated family time. This led to them reminiscing of their grandparents and how important being Ukrainian was to them.
I made these earrings as a visual reminder of Ukraine and as a way to fundraise for both Medecins San Frontiers\Doctors without Borders and the Vancouver chapter of the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians- a cultural centre which brings together Ukrainian Canadians to celebrate their rich culture and customs. Our own 3-year-old daughter attends Ukrainian dance classes there each week.
