any 'how to solder for dummies' videos or dvds out there?

Hi, I'm a lampworker who would like to work glass cabs or beads into brooches or pendants and know almost zilch about silversmiting and especially soldering. Does anybody out there know of an instructional video/dvd which could help me to learn the basics of soldering/doing the process I am wanting to achieve? Your help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks. Marie-Claude

Marie-Claude,

I am not aware of a video that covers only soldering. I can recomend Tim McCreigt's video The Complete Metalsmith". As I recall he has a section discussing and demonstrating soldering. The video is also available on dvd. A google search may turn up other videos.

Thank you Fred. That's a great start. I appreciate it. I shall look into that. If anyone else knows of anything else, I'd love to hear back. Marie-Claude
