Steve Mitchell

Steve Mitchell Steve grew up on a farm in southeast Iowa and has always been mechanically inclined. About 10 years ago his wife signed him up for a jewelry class since she thought he needed something to do on Tuesday nights. His jewelry work allows him to use his torch, hammers, saws, files, etc. in a creative way. All of his work is hand fabricated in his St. Charles, IL studio using sterling and fine silver, and semi-precious stones (and occasionally copper, brass and gold). Working with sheet and wire he uses traditional metalsmithing techniques to form each piece. He likes his designs to look time worn with an industrial look. This is created by using patinas to create a darkening effect on the silver. Steve likes the challenge of hand fabrication, and feels satisfaction knowing that each of his pieces is truly unique. His has been the greatest benefactor of this class along with many happy customers who have purchased his jewelry from various galleries and his booth at shows.
