Excellent Buy: Metalsmith Essentials: How to Solder Jewelry with Lexi Erickson Review by Leah Best

I bought this video to Learn how to Solder bezels and I was so impressed. Lexi did everything correct: from explaining basics like safety working with torch to explaining about all the items used to solder in detail. She even teaches you some cost saving measures and tips about soldering that she learned over the 25 years of her work. I watch the video several times and it its well worth the price. You will learn more from this video than taking a class. The only thing I wish that she explained more is how to set up the torch and what gases to use and were to buy them. I will be looking for more videos from Lexi.
