To make a long story short:
I wanted to thank my cousin for all she does for me and for offering me a beading book she had and wouldn't use, in ITALIAN!!! Such a perfect combination :-)
I Received the Mini Bag di Perline book by Patrizia Nave Cerutti on June 2010.
Nevermind that I was very disappointed from the book, to my opinion the projects are very poorly explained and the work isn't neat. Nevertheless, I asked Miranda to choose some project she liked from there and ended up beading her the Charlstone Beaded Amulet Bag.
I made some changes and added a Russian Rosette Flower, based on this free tutorial.
Added some Herringbone donuts and used the following twisted Ndebele spiral. You can also have a look at a similar embellished one, here.
I sent the bag to Italy, but it came back to Israel after a while because of customs issues. Miranda finally got it on the 14th of January 2011 and seemed to be very happy.
