- Soldering mysteries explained Review by Cynthia Walker
I was blown away by Lexi Erickson's soldering DVDs Vol. 1 and 2. I learned so much. I thought I had soldering down until I viewed Lexi's DVDs (at least 3 times now). She made soldering so much easier for me and cleared up its mysteries. Lexi is an awesome teacher. I have learned so much from her through these DVDs which are a must have. I will review these techniques many times as I work my way through difficult soldering projects.

- Highly recommended Review by carlos parra
I am in the beginning of jewelry classes and this DVD has been invaluable. On this DVD you can find the basis for a great soldering technique, but also tips and references to find the tools and materials needed, which would save you some time and money. After watching this DVD I have adjusted my tools and way to solder and I can see the difference.

- Best ever Review by Kelli Shinabarger
I think this has got to be the best instructional video I have ever purchased. I learned so much. Helen, please come out with another soldering video with more difficult soldering techniques. I need help on set up for more difficult and complicated joins. You are a wonderful teacher. Thanks So Much! Kelli

- Wanna learn to solder? Review by Kathi Cockrill
This is the best instructional video on how to solder that I have come across to date. The instructions and explanations are concise, the instructor is pleasant (and fun) to listen to, and the video production is outstanding. I also appreciated her commentary and recommendations on what tools to use and are available, and how to save money using tools not (necessarily) specific to jewelry making. I own several books that explain how to solder but I must say, watching a video is so much more satisfying and I recommend it to anyone who is serious about learning. I love her technique!
