Awesome. Great piece to make!

Stephanie Reese on May 30, 2019

This is one of the best tutorials I have ever purchased. COMPLETELY thorough and pictures of every step. I have a monthly ink program, so I was able to print each page in high quality color. It's a ' small book' 😊 and I am truly happy I purchased it .

Very easy to down load and instructions are straightforward and easy to follow.

I have come back to edit my review now I have completed the tutorial. Words can't describe how thrilled I am with the finished result. The tutorial was fantastic, so detailed, thorough and well presented. I can't recommend this tutorial highly enough (and will be doing to everyone!). You will not be disappointed. 10/10.

Rodi's work is outstanding and I feel honoured to be following her guidance through this tutorial and learning from someone so amazingly skilled. Rodi is also so approachable and helpful. That enthusiasm to see others grow and achieve too is a beautiful trait of hers... and is one of many qualities that shine in her own pieces. 

Rodi really is one of the very best jewellery artists there is.

The SkyandBeyond tutorials are the more informative, comprehensive and user friendly tutorials I have ever used. It is evident that much thought and time is invested to deliver a detailed and clear tutorial with many useful extra in terms of general information. In addition, direct contact with any query is dealt with in a timely and friendly but professional way. Frankly, I can't rate them high enough.
