Go from the basics of traditional Russian filigree (filigrana) to advanced, contemporary, and sculptural filigree fabrication, while making several pieces of jewelry, including two pendants and a ring. Learn expert techniques for successfully fabricating filigree. Make your own perfectly milled and twisted filigree wire. Discover how to use different types of frame wire to create distinct looks and how to form elegant filler wires in different curves. Learn the secrets of nesting filler wires to achieve more interesting designs. Solder effectively with powdered solder to retain the elegant detail of the wirework. Creating filigree with different metals and alloys will also be explored. Develop your own unique voice through this exquisite technique. This workshop is both technique and project based. Emphasis is on fabrication and forming. There will be many in-depth demonstrations as well as time to work in class. Clean up and polishing of projects may be completed during or after the workshop. Students who have completed the projects in Victoria’s Russian Filigree video may work under her direction on more advanced projects.
