A really comprehensive little package on machine finishing jewelry. Review by Warren
Rating

I am an accomplished metalsmith who has studied with some of the most well respected instructors in the world. Helen Driggs pulls a great deal of long term training into a smooth and concise presentation that covers what every beginner needs to know while refreshing some old memories. I have watched some of her earlier videos and she has really polished her presentation. The message is simple and to the point and should benefit every viewer.
