- Not for Beginners!
- I wish I had done a little more research before purchasing this DVD. Part of the design utilizes decorative solder balls. After countless attempts, I have given up on adding these to my piece. I went to her Etsy site to purchase the book format and read that it "takes years" to master this design element. That caveat should be added to the DVD description. I would not have purchased the download if I had known that it was essentially for those who are much more experienced. (Posted on 3/13/2016)
