I’m really sorry Vangerlin, that you feel that way, truly! But pattern designers like myself couldn’t make a living if we made all of our patterns free.

Seriously Vangerlin? NOT everything in life is FREE. I totally appreciate the efforts of artisans, being one myself, and I fully expect to pay to advance my knowledge. Wow.

I would be delighted to know when the tutorial and pattern for the mystic ring was made, considering that this is a design that I developed and taught classes for roughly 8 years ago.

I would suggest you contact the author directly Jessica, since I have no copyright information for other than my own tutorials.

Hi, can you add some videos in the tutorial showcasing the process of making gemstone rings and little knowledge from where to get the best material for rings.

I have been talking myself out of buying Mywiredimagination’s Marcella and a lesson in patience tutorials for the better part of 2 years now, and every time I search techniques, they’re one of the first to pop up every time. I think it’s about time I get em!

I recently purchased your Tutorial for the Fancy Band Prong Ring and was not sure if you would have any kits for me to purchase. I looked on your website and was not able to purchase a complete kit for this particular tutorial. I would appreciate your help in get a kit to make this particular ring. I love your designs and your talent for making beautiful jewelry is stunning. Thank you!
