Just one liitle tweak Review by wickedcarrot

If only her hand had not been covering the final flush set demo (some of the others too, but they weren't as annoying), I would have given this video 5 stars. It was fantastic throughout most of it, but the camera either needed to move or she needed two cameras. So frustrating. Still it's a terrific video for an intro. I loved her attitude about prongsetting...think of it as an open bezel and move

Excellent DVD Review by Sandra

Best resource I have found on setting gemstones without attending an actual workshop and excellent value for money. Whilst the camera angles could be improved in some spots it still gives a very clear guide as to what to do to successfully set faceted stones. I was delighted that her fancy stone setting DVD came out so soon after discovering this one and now own both. Can't wait for more.....

great half way through Review by Elyse

I looked forward to this video with great anticipation. My hopes were met with the prong setting project. The tube setting steps were great until the last. She did not show the last steps of refining the top of the set stone or discuss bright cutting. The final instructions on how to flush set were pointless because her fingers obstructed a view of how she was setting the stone. I was VERY disappointed in this because I want to learn to flush set well. I would love to see a revised version of the video with the necessary information added to this otherwise great video.

Superb! One of the Best Videos Review by Kerri

This is one of the two best videos I have viewed from Interweave. There was so much detail that I have not been able to find in other presentations and Ann presented them beautifully. I learned so much in this video, the photography and video quality is excellent and the recommended tools and how to use them was invaluable. I can't wait to set more stones.

I hope you will be providing more videos by Ann. Excellent... a must view for anyone learning to set stones, both the novice and the experienced stone setter.

Thank you so much!
