What do I need to get into making glass and metal jewelry?

I want to start making my own glass beads and pendants, I’d also like to like to know where I can find good info. on how to make other jewelry, like rings and pendants, etc. with metal. I already have a good understanding of beading, although I always learn something new. Where can I find this information? I’ve tried using a search engine, but most of those sites aren’t helpful. I can’t take a class at a local bead shop because with school, I don’t have time. Any suggestions/help is greatly appreciated.
