Disappointed Review by Elaine
Rating

The reason that I purchased this DVD was to learn how to do a clasped that is displayed on the cover of this DVD. The particular clasp was only addressed once during the video with absolute no instruction how to make and inserted purely in a show and tell segment. Very disappointed.

I just love these DVDs Review by Lisa L Wright

This DVD is among the many I've brought from INTERWEAVE.COM. I've loved each and every one of them. The clasp designs that were shown on the DVD have definitely added a certain charm and style to my hand-beaded bracelets.
