Great video
Great instruction but Could use better camera angles, some times is very hard to see details. Review by Jewelry maker (Posted on 8/1/2016)
A good point to start from
I bought this DVD after looking at a plenty of on line videos about setting. Ann is very didactic. That is she takes care to show all passages of the job without hurrying, and with a complete description of each step, as well as giving tips to prevent errors or ways to solve problems incurred. Probably there are other as valid videos on the market but, if you do not want to go around too much, stop right now, this is what you are looking for. I didn't gave 5 stars only because sometimes (very few) the camera is not well positioned and doesn't show the job. Review by roberto (Posted on 10/29/2015)
