Typography & Hand Lettering

I've always admired beautiful hand-lettering and I really want to do a design that is a text based. But typography really is my weakest point in design, I've gone back and forth between watching videos and reading up theory. I honestly just don't know where I should start. Is it necessary to know all about typography to learn lettering or is it okay to just jump straight at it? Anyone awesome here got any pointers please? :D
