Absolutely the Best Instructional DVD I've Ever Watched
I can't say enough wonderful things about Ann Cahoon's teaching ability. I was taking a metal arts class in college and was struggling
to make a three way chain. Ann's instructions helped me get an 'A' on my project. Every step in the process of chain making was explained clearly and concisely. Ann is a pleasure to watch and listen to. There were plenty of close-ups so you could see what she is actually doing. I'm not sure what difficulty the earlier reviewer incountered but my download and DVD had a part two that covered all aspects of finishing a chain. If you want to learn how to make Etruscan/Roman chain, this is the DVD for you.

Excellent Teacher
Ann is an excellent teacher and I could listen to her all day and not get tired of her voice. To me that is very important. Some teachers I cannot listen to for very long. The only complaint, and it's very disappointing, is that she did not go over the drawing of the chain or finishes like it states in the description. So you cannot finish a chain with this video! Therefore I took 2 stars off. If I had know this, I would not have purchased this and wasted $20 but would have bought the complete video not just the intro one. Shame on you guys!!
