Lots of good tips in this! Review by Joanne

I've been beading for quite a few years now, but there's some things she mentioned in this video that were really good to think about when designing or constructing. I will definitely use these tips and ideas going forward!

Fully Enjoyed Review by JoAnn

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed Kate McKinnons The Jewelry Architect. I am a new fan of her art as only she seems to be able to create flawlessly. I recently saw her youtube channel explaining how she created a beautiful ring and her style of MRAW-modified Right Angle Weave. And just fell in love with the way she creates and her style of jewelry making. I hope to find all her books and DVDs to complete my collection and her book although it is a download simplifies what I believe is a totally mesmerizing way to create her things. Thanks for asking for this review I give it with my utmost pleasure. JoAnn
