Most of all, having taught thousands of classes on soldering, Kate has a "you can do it!" attitude that shines through to help even the most reluctant jewelry maker fire up the torch with ease.

Paired with an instructional DVD, Kate's expert teaching skills will help projects come alive, right in your own studio.
