You can do it, take it from Lexi herself: "Let me let you in on a little secret. My first semester in my university jewelry class, I wouldn't light the torch. I was terrified to light the torch. I always got the cute guy that sat next to me to light my torch for me.  And one day he was absent. The teacher wouldn't do it for me, so I had to light it myself. And you know what, it's not that difficult. You can overcome your fear. And now, it seems that I have gotten so well known about soldering and working with the torches that my nickname among all my friends is Lexi the Torch."

Fantastic
I bought both 1 & 2 videos How to Solder Jewelry, Lexi is a great teacher, she welcomes you into her 'studio' & shows you how to set up & work with a gas torch. Lexi also shows different techniques of soldering & the five words you need to know in order to create a good solder joint. Watching these videos has helped me not to be afraid of using a gas torch or of soldering. Thanks Lexi, much appreciated for these two great videos. Review by John Ford (Posted on 6/22/2012)
