Jewelry Etching on Copper Review by Sheila Smith

I went to New Orleans La and took two day etching class from a well known artist .... I paid $200. plus $125 supplies and it was the worst class I ever took and learned NOTHING ... when I got home I received an email from your company advertising Lexi Erickson's "Etching" dvd. I thought it could'nt be any worse then the class I just took... It was my first dvd with Lexi and within 95 minutes I became an etching fool.. she made the process simple,,, easy and exciting and because of her I love to Etch and have made some beautiful jewelry ....This lady is a jewel !!!
