This video is AMAZING. Was trying to figure out how to start making necklaces from pictures I see and my mind got over whelmed and I could not figure where to start. I am a beginner and got discouraged trying to read instructions and getting no where.This helped me to Get It. I loved how she explained how to use the jewelry piece as a start. Thanks. Has anyone else foung this video helpful?
