Learn From Home, an Age Old Craft

Can I teach myself to be a silversmith? More specifically, I want to make nice rings, with drusy and cut stones, and maybe some raw brass pendants. But how do I start? [more inside]

Amore d'Armor

Recently started weaving chainmail in a search for a quiet crafty activity to do at my desk during downtime at work. Sunk ~$100 into getting a good mix of starting materials (anodized aluminum, brass, and a steel "coif kit" for when I get the hang of it.) Have so far learned basic 4-in-1 weave and made a bracelet and some earrings for my wife. (The latter turned out, the former is so-so.) What are some good resources for patterns, advice, other info?
