What Others Are Saying...
Your method makes pitch fun instead of a fright.

The quality of your production is really top class, you should be rightly proud of such a fantastic project; That is just the production, which is, in my opinion head and shoulders above any other informative craft DVD I have ever seen.

For 25 years post-conceptual artist, educator, and author, Victoria Lansford has created one-of-a-kind wearable sculpture and art objects that evoke the mystery and splendor of ancient masters yet are infused with her own provocative vision. Through her artwork, publications, workshops, and passion for creating, Victoria has generated an international revival of nearly lost, old world metalsmithing techniques, including high relief Eastern repoussé, Russian filigree, chain making, and granulation, and paved the way for metalsmiths to rediscover the variations from other cultures.
Her award winning artwork has appeared in exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Wayne Arts Center, the Mulvane Art Museum, the von Liebig Art Center, Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Georgia Museum and in numerous publications, including the Lark 500 book series, Metalsmith and Jewelry Artist magazines, Repousse and Chasing (Brynmorgan Press), On Body and Soul: Contemporary Amulets to Armor (Schiffer Publishing) and on Home and Garden Television.
Victoria created the metals program and served as head of the Metalsmithing Department at Spruill Center for the Arts, Atlanta from 1997-2004 and was an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee.
Victoria earned her Bachelor of Arts in jewelry design and silversmithing at Georgia State University in 1993 where she studied with Richard Mafong and Gia Gogishvilli. Her artwork is in private collections around the world and is available in art galleries around the United States and through this website. She creates and lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
