What Others Have to Say

The difference in Victoria’s online jewelry & metalsmithing courses

Achieve levels of skill that you didn’t know you had

I just spent the most wonderful class with one of the best teachers that I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. Victoria is a true artist and shares her gift teaching with patience, passion, good humor, and enthusiasm…she has an infectious laugh, and you can’t help laughing with her while she encourages you to achieve levels of skill that you didn’t know you had.

The Michael Bublé of teachers

Victoria, you are the Michael Bublé of teachers. If you’ve never seen him perform, it’s a real treat because he is so connected to his audience. When he’s on stage it’s all about the audience, not about him. His ego is nowhere to be found, and you teach the same way. You love what you do, and it comes through in your teaching. Thank you for that!

These courses prove that you really care

As an educator myself, I appreciate the sheer amount of time you put in the preparation of all those materials and videos. With the care you take you have raised my work to another level. These courses prove that you really care about your students and their success

GET ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTOR TIME AND FEEDBACK AS YOU PROGRESS THROUGH THE COURSE


Enter a new realm of individualized, online metalsmithing that gives everyone a front seat for live group Q&A coaching for their projects, fits demos within your own studio schedule, and creates a strong sense of community. Victoria will answer questions between sessions via Padlet, a private virtual space. You’ll receive continued support from Victoria via Padlet for 30 days after the final live session to ensure you have time to translate these techniques into more of your own projects and designs.

Access close-up, step-by-step demonstrations in high res, 4K video to watch as you work along at your own pace.


Each of the first 4 weeks, you will get access to new demo videos to watch as you work at your own pace. Start and stop as needed. Easily find demos you’d like to repeat. Work asynchronously, when your schedule or time zone allows, knowing you’ll have the support and community you need without getting overwhelmed.

Total work time with instructor feedback: 60 days.

Achieve levels of skill that you didn’t know you had

Victoria’s workshops are presented in a clear and engaging manner that is both highly informative and entertaining. As students, our skill-set was dramatically improved during the course of a workshop. We were able to put the techniques we learned to immediate use, and made the cost of the workshop back on the first piece we sold.

In Japan, Victoria would be considered a national treasure…

Victoria teaches techniques used for millennia to create many of the great works of art one can see in museums. She has found many tricks that streamline and improve the processes, and she uses them to make strikingly contemporary pieces rooted in the ancient world.
Students are given a series of challenges and opportunities to grow their own inner voices and are encouraged to create works unique to them, at their levels of ability.
The number of places one can learn these skills in the US can be counted conveniently on one’s thumbs. In Japan, Victoria would be considered a national treasure, and she would be funded to pass these skills on to the next generation.

Frequently Asked Questions

No! This is an intermediate filigree class. This class will focus on designing and fabricating beyond the very basics, so it is essential that you already know how to twist filler wire and how to construct and fill filigree frames. You don’t have to be a master filigree worker, but you do need some experience with tension fitted, open back, filigrana, Russian filigree, or Yeminite filigree. If you learned from Victoria’s Russian Filigree video or studied with her, Milt Fischbein, or another of Victoria’s longtime students and gone on to make at least a few pieces, this class is for you.

Please consider learning basic filigree from Victoria’s online video Russian Filigree or her DVD on the same topic.
