Customer Reviews

Not for beginners Review by Gina

I personally got some good tips from this DVD and I enjoy seeing how she holds her tools and wire. I'm excited to make some jewelry with her inspiration.
I would not recommend this DVD to a beginner in wire work. She takes many things for granted that you would already know if you are experienced in wire work.

Just as I expected, great close ups of hand ergonomics! Review by LaLa

I got just what I wanted with this DVD download! Janice Berkebile delivers excellent verbal and visual instruction and demonstration. The projects and techniques featured are very intricate and can seem intimidating but, her clear directions, tips, and close ups of the hand placement and movements make positive results very attainable.

I also have her book as well as other books and DVD's plus a few years experience with wire. What I was hoping for was a refresher and a warm up as well as a good look at her hand movement, placement, and workflow. That is exactly what I got!

I am wo happy with this purchase! I recommend this DVD for anyone who has an interest in recreating Janice Berkebile's gypsy fabulous wire jewelry!
