About this class, I took it a couple of years ago, and found it to
be beyond my expectations.
Rhonda Coryell is an extraordinary teacher, and her infectious love
of her craft will seep in through your pores. there is no way to
leave this class and not have confidence to move forward in many
aspects of jewelry making. She is that good an instructor.
For many of us, we can look back at one teacher who stood head and
shoulders above all others past and future, and infused us with the
ability to know just how to reach our goals, and that, yes it is
entirely possible. Rhonda is one.
Far beyond the label of this class will be learned, techniques that
work and why they do, the most direct path to a satisfying end,
wheat from chaff.
This is an experience just waiting for you to find it.
You will be glad you did.
Yes I am a fan of Rhonda Coryell, no other affiliation.
I also am a fan of Ronda Coryell. I just recieved her first DVD on
Argentium and I was blown away! I could hardly wait to finish the
video so I could order some Argentium and get started on the
projects. Her friendly and accessible teaching style definately comes
across in this DVD. I am looking forward to the future volumes. I
believe they are available from Rio Grande.
