Question from eva k.
HI there. quick question. the course descriptions say 1st - silver ring, 2nd - jewelry with a bezel set stone, 3rd - own design. Is this correct? Just checking, since in the video mentions a copper heart followed by the bezel set ring. Thank you so much.
Answer from Joanna F. Verified Student
I believe the description is correct, although the instructor may change things up. The video is more demonstrative of what the class looks like, not necessarily what you’ll be making.
Answer from eva k.
Great. Thank you.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff

Reviewed by HELENE B. on 4/7/2020
This is the third time I've taken this class. Shella is a great teacher, patient and very knowledgeable. I have some physical challenges, which is why I keep repeating Jewelry 1. Shella is sensitive to those challenges and gives me the help I might need. Even when we switched to remote classes, she managed to keep the class interesting.
