Don't waste your time or money Review by gena

Like the other reviews I too was VERY disappointed. If you have ANY beading experience at all, you will not learn anything. Youtube has many free videos that are far superior to this one. I originally purchased the high def version and even with my 7 meg connection it showed a 6 hour download time. When I call Interweave they did change the download to regular quality. (which was not very clear)

Very Disappointed Review by Margaret

This package leads you to believe that patterns are supplied. For the price I was disappointed with its contents. Seemed rushed and was more audio than visual. Melanie Potter has a web site, her work is beautiful. Again disappointed that no patterns were included

VERY disappointing Review by Connie S

I had high hopes for this but it didn't contain anything that I could not find for free on the internet. Very disappointed there were no patterns provided for the beautiful projects shown. :(

Not Accurately Described Review by Rosemary

The wording suggests there are projects to expand your knowledge and make something wearable such as the items shown on the 'cover'. There are no projects, only basic instruction on how to form the chain. The only highlight is the PDF instruction sheet, clear and easy to follow but useless without a project. Very disappointed,
