- Learned so much
- This video was very interesting and I learned so much. I'm new to jewelry fabricating, but not to soldering. I'm a retired stained glass artist seeking a craft that is not so tedious on my back. Lexi has a new fan. I will be ordering more of her videos and I'm sure you will find her to be a terrific teacher. (Posted on 6/11/2016)
