Great Video to learn the basics and more Review by Patience

Although I have yet to make a ring, I know that this will help me be more successful at doing so when my shop is finally set up. This was a great educational tool that I am going to use to become a more creative jewelry artist. Not having access to schools to learn from, these videos are the next best way to learn to become a self taught artist. To be able to spend a small amount of money to learn from some of the best artists and designers is a no-brainer. I'm sure that if you can follow directions and have the patience and tools to do this work, this dvd will help you become a better jewelry artist. Worth the money.
