awsome Review by Roli Okoregbo

i just got as a download and could stop watching it till 1am. the very next morning i got my silver and my torch and made my very first handmade bead and it was so easy. i would recommend this product any day. I love the delivery by Lexi, she is a very good teacher, but would have loved to have something on reticulation. all in all it was a good buy

Excellent DVD Review by carlos parra

This is a great DVD!! After the basic soldering technique and tools showed on the first DVD, this is getting better with the second one. More technique, knowledge and tools, adding other metals, like copper and brass, and more inspirational work. It is also enjoyable to see how Lexie Erickson wants to transmit her experience and technique. Can not wait for the next DVD.
