This video really helped me understand the difference between fine silver and sterling silver and catapulted me to the next level of jewelry making. She is a wonderful instructor and I highly recommend her other videos too, such as how to make ball head pins. Thank you so much for sharing Kriss. Love you all at Beaducation. Lots of Aloha, :)

Great class!! I have had some fine silver for awhile. I knew it needed to be fused but beyond that didn't have a clue - well I do now! Kriss is an excellent instructor and I will be sure to check out more of her classes. Thanks Beaducation!

What a great video! I learned so much and now know the difference between working with fine silver compared to sterling. Kriss has a very nice, soft voice that contributes to her easy to watch and understand teaching. I'll be looking for more of her lessons.
