Angelina Rosanova



Angelina Rosanova "ANKARS"

Angelina Rosanova was one of the developers of the "ANKARS" style of beaded tatting. Nina Libin shared the facts about ANKARS with me during the first lesson on ANKARS presented to the Online Tatting Class (Feb. 2013). AN-K-A-R-S is an acronym of the initials for the first and last names of three women:

Angelina Rosanova, her daughter Ekaterina Stepnaya, and Angella Safonova
these are the founders of this technique:

ANgelina
Katya (short for Ekaterina, later she changed it to Rina)
Angella
Rosanova
Stepnaya and Safonova under one S

Angelina's daughter, Katya (Ekaterina = Rina Stepnaya), joined her in the early 1990s. The group also included Angella Safonova (now a professional interior designer). They started teaching tatting specifically stressing the necessity of a stiff and strong tatted foundation to hold a lot of beads and to imitate wire so that their jewelry looks like filigree. They exhibited their beautiful pieces and attracted a lot of followers all over the country, the rest is history. Rina is responsible for all the publicity in books and on the Internet.

Angelina's book, "Tatting and Beads", was first published in 1997 as part of the Russian craft books series, "Wonderful Moment." It is an A4 size paper booklet with but 22 pages. The patterns are all in the Russian language but fortunately, every pattern has one or more diagrams. The diagrams show the tatting procedure and have the double stitch count marked on them. Some of the patterns have additional diagram(s) showing where the additional bead are sewn on after the tatting is completed.

Some of the diagrams do not show every picot that is decorative. However, the actual number of picots to be tatted is marked next to these elements, chains mostly. Beads that occur on a picot are added as the piece is tatted, but, they do not all show on the diagram. Beads that are sewn on afterwards are shown.
