The three previous reviewers said it best and I second their sentiments! I'm still learning and practicing jewelry making techniques as I watch Karla's videos. I completely agree with what reviewer "Peggy" wrote - Karla does have a way of instilling "confidence" in those of us to "keep trying"!

Karla...you are the best instructor! I haven''''t taken any classes on making jewelry, except from you. I am making earrings by the dozens, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, and selling them. I owe it all to you, you have taught me for over a year, and I love making jewelry! You have helped me to maintain my sanity after I had to retire after a severe back injury. I have gone from being a registered nurse to a jewelry maker! I owe all the thanks to you, ...Linda Smith
