I would like to learn how to solder/make rhinestone brooches/pendants. It there a craft book or resource that gives instructions? Thanks.

I do not think its a good idea to use lead type solders. However they make silver type solders, which would be better suited to jewelry - I think! I am also interested in metal jewelry, but more on the line of copper; shaping it and soldering, but afterwards thought. Maybe it needs some type of coating applied to keep it from tarnishing or turning green or corroding? Maybe something to think about, also - on any metal type jewelry.
Here is a basic soldering video I found interesting at this web address:
