- Ms. Driggs....an awesome instructor!! Review by Catherine Bishop
This video is chocked full of good information. Helen Driggs has a wealth of information in her brain, and she shares it! I've acquired a lot of the videos she's the instructor in and have not been disappointed! Of course, she makes everything look easy, but with her videos, I can stop them and review again and again without a problem. Her instructions are clear, and I love watching her work. I recommend this video highly and ALL of her videos!!!

- Metalsmithing Essentials: Rivets and Cold Connections Review by NULL NULL
Helen is an articulate and talented craftsperson who shares her expertise in a fast-paced, entertaining and very practical way. Beginning with some great tips for harnessing the design process, she efficiently outlines commonsense safety precautions before taking us step by step through the creation of some high quality finished pieces. It is fascinating to watch someone so skilled with their hands... I had to keep pausing the video because ideas were constantly coming to me that I couldn't wait to try! She also shares tips here and there that only a seasoned jewellery artist would know and which I'm glad I didn't have to learn myself through trial and error. It is genuinely entertaining to watch this video. To anyone for whom soldering and the use of torches still causes some trepidation, the excellent cold connection techniques taught by Helen Driggs will open up a whole new world of possibilities.
