I have tried beading on my own before with no success but Kerri makes it so easy you just get it and achieve success right away.

I am very satisfied with the jewelry classes 101 and 201. I am new to jewelry making and I started by joining a senior recreation center jewelry class and your two classes have been very helpful. I have even taken some of your ideas and suggestions to the class as we all tend to help one another. Most of the students are in their 70's and 80's and they have been very happy to hear what you have to say. I myself am 74 so I am glad to be able to pause and repeat the section that you are explaining. Thank you for these two DVD's as I truly feel you are very organized and very good explaining "bit by bit".

Best $28.00 I have spent so far, a lot of classes go out of view from the camera and you can't see what the instructor is doing, lovely clear video.
I have already made some double string bangles with pearls. Thanks to the video that gave me ideas.
I would like to see more wire work and beading videos. I'm new at this but can do basic wire work, I have books and other videos but I have found they make things that are too complicated and work I'm not interested in or don't like, but your video hit the spot. Thank you.

I have been beading and doing wirework for years. I wanted this class for quick gifts, since I had ran out of ideas. Due to the download my creativity bug immediately went into overdrive. Not just using the designs that are given, but how I could make changes so the designs could be even more unique using the products I have on hand. Thank you. I will be watching the refresher when I get the time.
