Excellent Video
Kim is an excellent teacher and I love her videos as well. This video gives needed information on the basics of fold forming, one of my new passions. If it is one of your passions as well, you need this tutorial. Thanks Kim. Review by Judy (Posted on 1/10/2015)
Fantastic You Don't Want to Miss It!
Another great teaching tool from Kim St. Jean. I've had the pleasure of Kim's great style of upfront teaching for several years. She never stops amazing me with her concept and her great easy-to-learn processes. I have seen her teach people who have never made a piece of jewelry and they walked out feeling proud. Great video, great work Kim!!! Review by Vickie (Posted on 11/22/2014)
Helpful and easy to use.
I took a class in air chasing a few months ago and loved it. So this video came in handy as a reference and reminder. My teacher was taught by Kim St. Jean. I have since made many bracelets. The beauty of this technique is that every thing you make is unique. Review by Deborah (Posted on 10/21/2014)
