You make it look so easy! I love the finished product, and that pink bead looks amazing with the copper!

The video was clear and easy to follow. Nice job! I'm looking forward the next one.

Great job with the video! Everything was clear, concise and easy to follow. The only thing I didn't hear was what gauge wire you were using...I am guessing 20G? The earring is a fun yet versatile design. Thank you for posting this. off to your shop for some blanks!

Hi, I'm Linda said...

Great video. I think you did a great job explaining things. I went to your etsy site and ordered the hole punch was also looking for some square blanks but didn't find any. I love your work.

Wonderful video! You make it seem simple. I love that you included links to the supplies and a separate picture of the supplies. Who knew that it was that easy to patina metal!?

Great tutorial Melinda! I liked how fast you moved through the steps & gave directions & insight through the whole thing. Did you film it yourself or did someone hold the camera for you? I'm curious because of some of the time when it went blurry when you had the piece up higher. Wonder how people do that when filming themselves...

Great job! Thanks for sharing!

Melinda-
This was an awesome tutorial. You know how they say that a picture is worth a thousand words? A video is even better! Now I want to try this! Can't wait to see the upcoming tutorials too. You did a great job!

Thanks everyone...I made a few adjustments to the post including links to the materials and tools I used and widened the video itself...My husband built me an adjustable stand to hold my iphone for taping...it works great until I can't see what I'm doing or forget I'm taping..lol...then I lift the piece up and it goes blurry...will work on that! Appreciate all the feedback...it really helps!! Drawing will be posted on the next How-to Video!! Stay tuned...

Kathie said...

Thanks for the tutorial! I just found your blog and am in love with your work. As a novice, the video answered a lot of questions I had. Can't wait to try it myself.

Louise said...

Great job Melinda! So much better to see a demonstration of a technique rather than having to read about it in a book. I hope there are many to follow.
Also shared to my FB profile.

I like that u show the whole process and don't skip steps. I replayed to hear the gauge of wire used but you didn't mention it - that's the only thing I'd change.

Off the Beadin' Path said...

Awesome video, professional, friendly, concise, easy to follow! In other words, good job, Melinda! You and copper bring out the best in each other!

Erin S said...

great job on the video! I like the trick of using a paper towel on top of the bench block--I'm gonna have to try that.

sophie watkins said...

Great video! Clear and easy to follow. Thank you for sharing!

Carolyn said...

Melinda, you make it look so easy. Liked the idea of using different shapes. Just have to master the first one.

Am going to post a link on my blog tonight.

Thanks for the opportunity to win a kit.
