This video made me feel like I was in the classroom with Kate. What an amazing instructor giving clear and concise instructions. There is a feeling of comfort and ease as Kate takes you through the soldering process. If anyone out there has any anxiety regarding soldering, it will definitely be alleviated after you view this. And as always, hats off to the videographer! Keep up the great work. Much love and aloha from a very appreciative customer. :)

Hey omg love the videos you all are amazing but I was wondering where might I look for the acrylic or wooden dowels like the one used for the jump rings in this intro
Beaducation Replied:

You should be able to find dowel rods at a craft store or hardware store. Or, you can always use a similar size item like a marker/pen.  A Sharpie marker is pretty close :)
