Your goal is my goal!

what my students have said...
I shall take every class you give online and buy any stone you offer for sale. Your classes are state-of-the-art, and your jewelry art is indeed divine. I expect that one day I’ll have the joy of learning from you in person. Until then, know that your charisma comes right on through the WiFi.
THANK YOU! All I can say is that this class has been the BEST!!!!!!!! The best I've ever taken and can't wait for the next. What a bang for the buck! There is not one thing more that you could have showed or taught us on these wonderful earring lessons, making learning easy and fun. You packed in sooo much information and never tired in answering any of our questions. The class felt very personal. Replaying the video's made it easy to fine tune our endeavors. You went out of your way and it seems to me that it was easy for you because you are so generous with all of your knowledge. So sharing. Very rare. You left no information out. One can easily see that you love your art profession and it radiates energy from within you and gives such confidence to all of us. God bless you. You are a "gift" my friend.
This is my 2nd online class for rings by Deryn. She is without a doubt one of the best teachers. I had taken courses at our city "craft center" for almost twice the money and had a tough time getting enough information, hands on, and never really got to see instructor demos cause everyone was always crowding around and/or taking up the instructors time. Deryn's videos are like you're the only one, and you're actually in the studio with her. I can't say enough about her abilities to communicate in such detail.
