Anne Mitchell

Anne framedThe Anne Mitchell Show is coming back to town!

Anne will be returning to Kalispell for 3 classes on:

Saturday, July 27,
Sunday, July 28, and
Monday July 29.

Anne's personal journey in metals has taken her from an in-depth exploration of the intricacies of ancient chain maille patterns, to a study of traditional metal-smith techniques and finally, happening upon the medium that she loves, fine-silver metal working. Anne has been sharing her love of metals with students here at the Bead&Button Show since it first came to Milwaukee. 
Anne was the first instructor to start teaching ancient maille patterns on the national level as well as the first instructor to teach fine-silver fusing at the Bead&Button Show. Her work has been featured in numerous Kalmbach publications through the years, and her metalwork was included in the 10-year Bead&Button Anniversary issue in 2008. In 2009, Anne was awarded the Excellence in Bead Artistry Award and in 2010 was honored to be included in the 10 Best Teacher list that was voted on by Bead&Button magazine readers and Bead&Button Show students.

PMC Deep Well Accent & Heavy Gauge Chain with Toggle Connection
Saturday, July 27, 9-5
Class fee $95, Kit Fee: $115.00

Class Description: The combination of PMC & heavy gauge fine silver is the best of both worlds in my book. Let’s take a clay extruder and create a PMC deep well centerpiece that will ultimately cradle a beautiful Rainbow Moonstone. Using the remaining clay, I will show you how to create a personalized toggle closure. As your creations are fired in the kiln we will use that time to make the 12 gauge links that will finish off your masterpiece.


Broom Casting 
Sunday, July 28, 9-5
Class Fee $95, Kit Fee: $110.00

Come and experience the fun of melting fine silver casting grain and pouring the molten silver into broom corn and see what amazing forms are created. Each pour is an adventure and a one of a kind treasure is hidden, waiting to be discovered. Each participant will create a finished pendant. (A 6mm tube bezel and AAA 6mm Citrine faceted semi-precious stone will also be part of the kit to add a bit of sparkle to your piece.)
(Note: We will NOT be making chains with the pieces.)

Twisted & Riveted Monster Gauge Bangle
Monday, July 29, 9-5
Class Fee $95; Kit Fee: $110.00

Class Description: 8 gauge, 8 gauge, 8 gauge … yes, 8 gauge fine silver will be the base for your bangle. We will hammer, texture and size the base that will be riveted to a forged, twisted & riveted centerpiece. that will highlight several texturing techniques each creation will be designed to fit the wearer.
