Glass Beads

Come into the Store and see what's new at
Powder Horn Trading Company?

  • Lots of great strands of  glass beads in all colors and sizes. Be sure to check out the new flower and leaf beads with summer projects in mind!
  • Need more bead storage to  go? We have a great new bead tube tower that holds 69 large tubes of  beads and 138 smaller tubes... or a combination of both sizes. This is a neat zippered, folding case that goes with you when you want to travel, bead at a friend's house, or work on a project in the summer sunshine.  All of your tubes are at quick fingertip access, whether it lays flat or stands up.
  • Dapping Blocks for your  metalworking. Make 6 different domed sizes from your metal blanks with  the wooden blocks, and even more in the metal blocks. We have the  dapping punches to go along with them, too. These are a must have for  making dimensional shaped earrings, charms, and pendants.

Anne framedThe Anne Mitchell Show is coming back to town!

Anne will be returning to Kalispell for 3 classes on:

August 1, 2020 9am-5pm
August 2, 2020 9am-5pm
August 3, 2020 9-5 PM


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.

Are you interested in learning the basics of bead stringing? We  schedule beginner classes on a regular basis - and also on request - so  you can learn how to put all of your beads in a row....AND make  some earrings to match. These classes are in addition to the Fall  line-up of classes. Call us to find out when the next 101 class will be  scheduled or what other classes we will have each month.
