Here are more testimonials from people who have bought the Professional Pearl and Bead Stringing DVDs. I am not posting names for obvious privacy reasons. However, I thought you might be interested.
“Fleury, Just a greeting from Seattle, WA. I’m one of your students who took classes with you in Houston approx. 15-20 years ago. By being exposed to your mentorship with deep knowledge of stringing stones, I developed a lifelong love of all things pertaining to creating jewelry and gemstones, also a passion for pearls. I just retired from nursing and plan to devote more time to my endeavors. I just want to thank you for passing along your many “pearls” regarding jewelry making/stringing. How fortunate I was that you opened up this world for me. Hope that you are well and happy. I will be ordering products from your website. Oh, by the way, I just acquired my first Mikimoto pearl necklace (6mm/18″ length). I finally made it to the holy grail!”

“As a beginner to jewelry making, not just pearl and bead stringing, your lessons taught me so much more than just learning to make knots. You include so much information in regards to supplies in a whole new world that I was unaware of. Since I live in Birmingham, AL, I would never have had a chance to take a class in person with you, but with the DVD’s, it’s like you are right there with me and teaching in a way that is clear even to a beginner. The only thing that was missing was “practice”! Fortunately, having the DVD’s gave me the confidence to jump in and do it and within a short period of time, I was so pleased with my practice pieces that I didn’t hesitate to restring a set of pearls for a friend of mine. She was so pleased with them and I was very proud of my work. Thank you for making that possible!

“I would like to take this time to say thank you for putting together the Professional Pearl & Bead Stringing DVDs. I feel that these DVDs are a must have for anyone who wants to learn to restring pearls and/or beads on a professional level. I learned so much from them just watching them the first time. These DVDs are very easy to understand and follow. You really take the time needed to help the buyer to follow the steps without feeling overwhelmed.
Again, thanks so much for a job well done. I will be looking forward to any new DVDs you create. You are an awesome instructor!!!!”

“I have been designing jewelery for five years and was looking on the internet for information on how I could enhance my manufacturing skills, particularly in pearl stringing, when I discovered Fleury Sommers. After reviewing the information she provided I immediately placed my order for her DVD tutorials on Professional Pearl & Bead Stringing Volumes 1 and 2, Advanced Professional Pearl & Bead Stringing and Special Knots & Materials Professional Pearl & Bead Stringing. I was not disappointed! I found Fleury to be clear and precise in her instruction and I have adapted many of her techniques in my designs.”

“I’ve wanted to learn how to string pearls for years, but didn’t know where to start. I stumbled across your site, bought the DVDs and am now making professional quality necklaces and jewelry.
The hard parts are easy and clear. I’ve enjoyed this so much.
