SUMMARY- Ms. Kwartnik is a needle tatter, and gives a lesson in the basics first. I can't read Italian, but her illustrations are fantastic - very clear and easy to follow. She gives you quite a few necklace patterns with matching earrings and a few bracelets. The necklaces all incorporate beads and have a contemporary feel to them that I like very much. I think anyone with a good grasp of the basics could handle the patterns, which have diagrams to augment the written(in Italian) instructions.
