Susan Street is the owner of VintageJewelrySupplies.com, which is where I buy most of my jewelry elements. She also has a website dedicated to teaching jewelry techniques, and it's diffiucult to find such instruction for free anymore. Finding her websites forever changed my jewelry design in one fell swoop, and since then I've connected with her on facebook and gotten to know her as an amazing individual.
Susan has recently expanded her teaching repuitoir to include videos. If you're anything like me, watching it done is the easiest way to learn something new.
