    Default Jewellery making DVD's

    I saw a thread where Mr Bond recommended a DVD by Blaine Lewis, I googled it and was impressed by the reviews, but sooo expensive, therefore I wondered if anyone had any other recommendations for jewellery making dvd's where I won't have to sell a kidney to purchase?

    I like some of his stuff, but find some of it a bit primitive. That sounds more critical than I mean it to, but I can't think of a better word. I wish some of the finishing was better though. I think the boxes, and some of the clasp demos are great, but I'm not keen on the beads and chains. Some great examples of what you can do with very few tools though

    I have the same problem when viewing this forum from work - I have to remember to have a look at the clips once I get home

    Mind you, I probably should be working at work

    Ha ha I know what you mean George, but I suppose I mean his techniques in general. They are so quicky and dirty - and yes I wouldn't be able to sell them in that condition, or without tidying them up a bit more. It depends on what your learning style is - I love written instructions with a few pictures (like your magazine tutorials) so I can read and read until I understand them, but seeing something done is just as good and to be able to pause and rewind or just watch and watch again is brilliant. Who or which Benchtube vids do you recommend? I must admit I haven't been through many of them.

    Hi
    i’ve found that this guy used to go under the name “Skillman” on Ganoskin but can now be found as “Giacomo” on Das Schmuckportal - Schmuck u. Goldschmiede Videos.

    Having watch him turn scrap silver in the most stunning objects, well worth watching.
