- Very disappointing!
- Based on the video's cover, you would think that the instructor is going to show you how to make the necklace.. Well, no she doesn't. Only shows you how to make a few link components, no finished bracelet or necklace. Mostly a tutorial on using "Now that's a Jig" and hammering steel wire. Not at all what I was expecting. Really a promotional piece for "Now that's a Jig." You will see a full page thank you in big letters at the end that says: "Special Thanks to Now That's a Jig by Brenda Schweder." I'd like to have a choice about whether I want to pay this much money for free advertising for the jig maker. I'd like my money back, Interweave. (Posted on 7/31/2016)
- Great intro to working with stainless steel wire
This video is 63 minutes long and is chock full of wire working tips, tools and instructions.
You do need a specific jig, the "Now That's a Jig" if you want to use the hardware store stainless steel wire. But I plan to use other kinds of wire with the jig I already own.
I've always been afraid of working with stainless steel wire, but now I feel like I have enough info to give it a try.
A good video for beginners and experienced wire workers. I recommend. (Posted on 8/8/2015)
