SUMMARY- I wish I could provide more bibliographic information than I have, but I don't read Japanese. You get a lovely variety of patterns that are diagrammed(which can be universally understood) even though the written instructions are in Japanese. You get a petite bow, Josephine knot necklace and earring set, motifs for earrings and necklaces, flowers, acorn based on a large pearl, Edgings used to make bracelets, butterfly motif(small and smaller), tassles, round motif that can be turned into a hat favor or an umbrella favor. She likes embellishing with large elements like buttons or large beads, but doesn't go overboard with them. I can best describe her jewelry patterns as elegant and old world(not old-fashioned). I was really impressed with her work.
