I am a scrimshaw artist and have been for many a year, I am trying to find either a book, video or other teaching tool that will help me perfect silversmithing. I NEVER expect to be a professional silver or gold smith, I just want to learn enough to set my own pieces in simple plain settings. I thought about and pursued the possibility of returning to school to take some classes in it, but my interest is so limited that the professors I spoke to did not think I would get what I needed from their classes. I already have much of the equipment and have been trying on my own but with not much success, any suggestions? Thanks in advance .
