- Metalsmith Essentials: Basic Jewelry Hammering and Forming Review by Anita Hearn
These videos by Bill Fretz were interesting and very informative. I am relative new to metalsmithing and would like to pursue this area in the near future. The videos are a valuable reference for me when that time comes. He is very thorough and explains not only his tools, but every step of each project. You won't be disappointed. I also wrote about the videos on my blog, shared on FBook.

- Metalsmith Essentials: Basic Jewelry Hammering and Forming DVD Review by Tom Suter
This is about the best done dvd I have bought. I probably own 30 or more. The quality of the recording is excellent as well as Bill's presentation. I would like to see the tool list that you can download be more project related than a overall of tools you need. There is one hammer that I just can not seem to find anywhere that he used. I owned a few of his hammers already had looked at the stakes but was not sure how to use them but clearly now you can see how to use them. Great job and can't wait to watch #2
