SUMMARY- I was intrigued by the premise - I'm always hunting for new ways people have used tatting. I think her follow through works well and her theme holds up. The jewelry pieces she made using Coats metallic sewing thread and various cabochons work really well together. She gives you numbered diagrams for instruction. This is not a beginner's book, but I think someone with the basics could reproduce her projects. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in working in larger pieces to their tatted jewelry than beads. She stretches the envelope of where tatting has gone quite nicely. Thanks!
