What makes Victoria’s Filigree Courses So Special

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Many of my online students cannot attend any of the live session because of time zones, work, or other obligations but still do fabulous work in the courses and are able to connect with me and each other through the dashboard asynchronously.

Access to the live session, coaching calls will be posted on Padlet (the class dashboard) within 24 hours.

All of the Q&A session recordings, demonstration videos, the ability to ask questions, and request feedback will be available to students until May 1, 2023.

Although you won’t get lifetime access to these recordings and demos, the handouts, of course, are yours to download and keep forever.

Wire working is not a prerequisite for this course. Plenty of people who have little experience or success in fine wire working go onto to create beautiful filigree after studying with me.

The Beginning Russian Filigree Course has time-limited access (4 months) with over 15 self-paced demos and 5 live coaching Q&A sessions with me, for a total of over 7 hours of live time.

You’ll access the demos, handouts, Zoom links, and resources through the class dashboard, where you can ask questions anytime and get frequent feedback from me on your projects, and the support and community that comes with joining a live cohort.

It features newer demos filmed in 4k with with extra demo content not included in the Vimeo download—for a total of 6 hours of in-depth demonstrations—that breaks down chasing from the front in more detail for creating Repoussé animals and florals.

The Vimeo video is completely self-paced with access to a Q&A forum with an archive of past questions. You have lifetime access to the content. It was filmed some years ago in 720 resolution, and while the professional camera work gets super up close, the videography employs older tech.

I have watched many students learn well from both the Vimeo video and the semi-live courses. It really depends on whether you work best with a completely self-paced format (Vimeo), or whether you’d prefer help and coaching from me, the built-in accountability of learning in a group, and a loose schedule to keep you on track with goals (the structured online course).

No, but I’m thrilled to teach people in the comfort of their studios. Running my own online school takes an enormous amount of time, but it allows me to teach people around the world without the physical pain that traveling was causing me. I miss spending time with people in person, but I don’t miss hauling heavy suitcases and walking miles in airports. Now, everyone gets a front row seat with more individualized help and the extended time to learn complex projects and techniques that I was never able to offer in person.

You must know how to solder with a torch and have basic jewelry making skills including soldering, sawing, filing, etc.

*Making filigree frame and filler wire requires access to a rolling mill. If that’s not an option, you can purchase both wire types pre-made from [](

**Filigree Wire Example Card & sample jar of Russian Filigree Powdered Solder $30. available through Victoria’s website beginning October 7, 2023.
