Something missing! Review by Lone

I like the way the teacher is showing the stuff she is teaching, but she assumes that the student know how to do some of the most important things. The download is about riveting but she never comes to that - how can she rivet without breaking the stone? In my opinion that ring should not have been shown when she's not finishing it!
As I startet saying - she is a fine teacher - but should have shown the whole process.

Helen Driggs gives you her ALL Review by Evelyn Coleman

This is my second workshop (class) with Helen Driggs and I love the way she teaches. She crams so many nice tidbits into whatever she's sharing with you. Even though this is about rings so much of what she says applies to metalsmithing in general. She is a very generous instructor...her instructions are clear and she truly shows you "how" something is to be done. I wish she would teach one on soldering copper and brass.

LOVE this Video Download!!! Review by Karen Kress

Helen did a wonderful job! She is so easy to understand, very down to earth and very thorough in her teaching... I downloaded this class yesterday, sat down and made a copper wrap ring today after dinner.... less than an hour to cut, texturize, form and finish. It's beautiful! Thank you Helen... I will definitely look into purchasing your other tutorials! GREAT TEACHER!! :) Karen Kress - Valkyrie's Adornments
