Absolutely love this site!! I am just starting to learn metal smithing and wire work jewelry and need LOTS of help! Do you have any online/video tutorials on the basics of soldering for jewelry? If not do you have plans to or can you direct me to a really good, thorough site?

Thanks Karen!

Hi Karen!

I am planning on introducing some on-line video tutorials this summer. Art Jewelry Magazine has some decent tutorials on YouTube that you may find helpful. However, for the most thorough instruction, check with your local art centers and see if they offer a jewelry making program. Nothing beats hands-on instruction! You can check with organizations like SNAG for classes in your area or if you're in Florida, The Florida Society of Goldsmiths. I'm their west coast chapter co-president.
