I tried the Artisan Corporation as well, I felt scammed, I had a professional jewler, that makes earings simlar to the pattern given by Artisan Corporation take a look at my earing before sending them, they sent them back, each time, there was different things marked as wrong. One time I would get four things right and the next time, them four things I did right last time ere marked as wrong, I tried sending them in multiple times, each time paying for a stamp. Also, you do not get all of your supplies right away, you get enough to make your first five earings, and that is it, you will not get the rest till you submit them, and they pass. I paid for a kit, I got my information through the mail, on the form I got it gave me an option to order my first full set of materials, I did so, I then got my starter kit in the mail, with a typed notice literally on scrap paper saying I would not recieve the rest until I turned in my five and they have passed. Since my five did not pass, I was out the money for the material and did not even have the material to do other things with. I strongly suggest you not use them.
