Perlnaofe Book 2 Gunhild Fette



PERLNAOFE is a term coined by Gunhild Fette for her beaded tatting technique. It is short for "Perlen in Nadel Occhi nach Fette" which means "Beaded Needle Tatting by Fette." This book, Perlnaofe 2 is her second book of beaded tatting. As in her first book, the text and directions are in German, however, there is an excellent German-English tatting terms equivalents table included. This table gives not only the terms but a diagram for each symbol.
















Spiral bound, this 5.5" x 8" paperback book has 22 patterns for necklaces, pendants for necklaces, earrings, bracelets and decorative eyeglass chains. Each pattern is photographed in brilliant color as a finished piece and many also have detailed enlargements of certain parts of the work. And what beautiful pieces of jewelry they are!

All of the tatting is constructed for use as jewelry but the individual pieces could have other uses as well. None of the tatting is difficult. Although presented as a needle tatting pattern book, all the patterns could be accomplished with the tatting shuttle as well.

Needle tatters will be particularly grateful for the full color photo tutorials shown in the back of the book. These techniques include adding on a new thread and covering the tail as the new thread is bring wrapped onto the needle; opening a closed ring (perhaps the only instance where tatting can be unraveled); incorporating jewelry findings into the tatting; several methods of placing beads on the threads; two color needle tatting; and much more.

There is a wide range of types of beads used. Many seed beads, delicas, rocailles, crystals, pearlescent crystals, pearls of many shapes and sizes, cabochons, and metal jewelry findings are incorporated into the work. There was a very clever use of a metal bead cap functioning as a calyx for a tatted flower, too. A very lovely book with many hours of happy tatting in it.

Note: I acquired this book for my personal tatting reference library. G. Seitz
