Arrow Boro basics... Volume #1 DVD - PREORDER your copy at a discounted price...

Plus you'll get in line to be the first ones shipped when they come in!




Here are the three finished pendants I demoed in the DVD... Can't wait to get into more complex stuff... but I had to start here and build as we go along. That way everybody can join in the boro fun!

I cover all of the off mandrel basics in this video tutorial. It's going to be in DVD format and I will ship as soon as I get them from the duplicator.

I'm offering a great PRE-order deal... instead of $49.95, it's $40 with $2 US shipping and $4 international shipping.

http://www.brentgraber.com/catalog.php?category=15

This video covers:
Flame Settings
2 ways to make a gather
2 ways to pull a boro stringer
Cold Seals
Using Peter Tweezers and Handy Andys
How to practice making loops with out ruining a your pendants
Drilling a hole with hot tungsten
Making a layered boro Twisty
Encasing with boro
Adding dots
Setting up and silver striking colors
Making a Maria
Reaming a big hole in boro
Raking boro using a clear stringer
Adding a drip to the bottom of a pendant

As an added incentive, I will also ad a little something extra in two of the first 100 packages... totally random give away. I'll do the drawing and announce who won here, after the first 100 are sold.

I'll get pictures of the giveaways up later... it'll be two of my best pendants.

Yes! It explains all the beginner stuff to get you started working boro off mandrel... I definitely started from the beginning and assumed people didn't know anything about how to do boro or off mandrel... It's a balance... it walks through the basics, but also includes enough that somebody who has done this before, won't be bored.

27 preordered since last night.

I'm so excited. I can't wait for people to see this and try the things I demo. It's my favorite part of teaching... and now I get to cause the "I GOT PINK!" excitement on a much larger scale. How cool is that?

Hey Mr. Brent,

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now I can stop asking you as to when you plan on releasing. Now I'll just ask for when the other 4 will be released as I have already placed my pre-order for this one.

Thanks,

Candace

Hey Brent,

Just pre-ordered my copy of your dvd - really enjoyed your class at glassstock a couple of years ago. I've admired your work. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Brent, I keep trying to order and am told the form is incomplete or incorrect. But I'm not told which field is wrong. I'm guessing it's the international phone number but none of the combinations I tried work.

Help please!!!!

I'm not sure what's going on Jenn. I've had people order from all over the world on my website... what part are you getting stuck on?

If you want, PM me your PP address and I'll just send you an invoice.

You can order Peter Tweezers from Arrow Springs and go to Andy's site www.galacticglass.net to get the Handy Andy's. They both do pretty much the same thing. One is a cheaper version and excellent for smaller holes... the Handy Andy's are built like a tank and are excellent for larger holes. They will also save you some time, because they make a hole all the way through. Peter tweezers just give you a guide.
