What advice would you give someone starting this project? Realize that there will be projects that turn out NOTHING like the concept you have in mind. That is just how it is going to be. A good motto to remember is "there is no such thing as a mistake, there is only a new design direction". Think about how the way things went wrong can turn into something right that you would never have thought of before. Learning to fire fine silver may have some mishaps along the way. But it helps to realize that with a course at a bead shop or such you would likely pay 150 dollars or more for your class...you can burn up a lot of silver here at your Craftsy course before you begin to approach that cost. And you get to keep and resuse all the silver that came out 'wrong', and exercise (and stretch) your creativity by making it turn out right!
