Review of Basket Weave Wire Centerpiece with Lisa Claxton
Lisa demonstrates and clearly explains each step involved in the creation of this clever and very pretty pendant. Her voice is well suited to narration; she's easy to listen to and seems to answer any question you might have before you even think of one. Lisa easily works with the tools, wire and a small scatter of beads to create eye candy and she knows what she's doing. This and the professional, concise camera shots combine to make every step of this tutorial easy to understand and actually learn/remember.
I will be weaving this project and I look forward to seeing more of Lisa
Claxton's talent. Sheryl Davis
