Is there a community college where you can take a class? Rio Grande might have a video in thier catalogue.
I don't think books do a very good job with metalsmithing..you could look at Robert Von Neumans book, I think I learned a lot from that. If you are doing simple fabricating, it would be good to at least see someone do it. It's not terribly hard, just a lot of little details that have to go right. Books skip little details sometimes.
You can email me directly if you like, and tell me where you are stuck. But eventually, a class will help a lot more.
