Review From Ernest -5 November 2017-
This class was great fun! Jessica is an accomplished artist and a great teacher. My wife and I each completed a decent piece of jewelry during the first class. All of the people in the class did the same. The class concentrated on ring making. Jessica brought enough tools, equipment and supplies to do a worthwhile ring project. After briefly giving simple instructions, Jessica turned every one loose to start on their own vision. My wife and I are in our seventies. We were given this class as a birthday present. We didn’t expect to get much out of it. We were wrong. I like my new ring and my wife likes hers.
