Unravel the Secrets of 3D Filigree to Create Stunning Sculptural Jewelry

Course Begins February 15, 2024 (First live session February 22, 2024)

Early bird discount ends December 7, 2023

Blow people’s minds without losing your own

3D filigree draws on the technique of Russian filigree (filigrana). But, instead of being limited to slight curves or shallow domes, you can create true sculptural filigree that nearly defies the laws of physics.

Learn how to create the work of your dreams!

Unlock the secrets for designing your own sculptural filigree jewelry as Victoria reveals how she builds her complex structures including

  • Flip-ups
  • Overlapping curves
  • Spiral wraps
  • Möbius strips
  • Fabric folds

What You’ll Make

Our first project will be a small sculptural pendant to discover all the technical considerations needed to bend and form soldered filigree. Next we’ll unlock the secrets for designing your own sculptural forms as Victoria unveils her strategies and processes. Expect to create two-three, 3D filigree jewelry projects.

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!

What Others Have to Say

What others have to say about studying with Victoria

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.

You can purchase ready to use 26 gauge, fine silver, filigree filler wire here.

You can purchase a Filigree Filler Wire Example Card here.

There is also filler wire making bonus video included to help troubleshoot these issues.
