REVIEW: Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! I loved the class and what I was able to create in just 2 days.  As with all things, practicing will help me learn and grow. I do feel that I learned the basics of metalsmithing and had enough material and that I could make a ring on my own; especially if I have my reading glasses 🙂
