TIRED OF LOOKING at page after page of messy, poorly finished, amateurish jewelry, then suffering through half-explained techniques? Want to walk away with new skills instead of a new recipe? Producing quality work doesn't mean you need to take a lot of extra time - but it does mean you need to learn the skills. All of my tutorials are chock full of tips to help you learn to create and design professionally finished jewelry which stands out in the crowded jewelry market. MY PLEDGE TO YOU I will deliver the most complete and detailed tutorials possible for each project. There will be sharp, clear, relevant photos which can be enlarged with little or no pixelation - giving the best views possible to help you learn more easily. There will be clear and thorough explanations for how to accomplish the work - Actual explanations for *how* AND *why* so you can repeat the work over and over. Not just a gap-filled checklist leaving you with unanswered questions. Gorgeous jewelry and the skills to make it await you.......

And as soon as I figure out how to combine baubles and mu shu successfully, you'll be the second one to know......
