I am thrilled to announce, after 6 years in the works, that the Multi-Touch edition of Giving Voice is now available on Apple Books.
Giving Voice is a multi-touch art book about the connections we form and how they can dramatically change our paths. The narrative traces the story of how the childhood gift of a board game came to ignite the author’s passion for ancient Egypt and send her on a truly different life journey as an artist.
The book’s unique and original artwork encompasses mixed media and gilded paintings with hand lettered calligraphy. The cover was created in the ancient technique of Eastern repousse combined with the Japanese technique of mokume gane.

A day in the life of Victoria Lansford is multifaceted to say the least- it is a masterful balancing act, consisting of business work, writing for one of her many books or blogs, creating instructional videos, and most importantly creating stunning work in metal.
For those of you that are not acquainted with Victoria’s metal working, it cannot be easily summed up in one sentence. With spiraling filigree, voluminous chasing and repoussé, and flourishing calligraphy, her work is not confined to one style, technique, or scale. However all of her work has strong roots in historical metalsmithing. Her techniques encompass traditions from ancient Greece, ancient Egypt, and even metal working found along the Silk Road. Her dedication to historical metalsmithing has garnered a greater interest and appreciation for historical techniques in our contemporary jewelry culture […continue reading]
