Step by Step Wire Jewelry really stepped it up for this art bead packed issue! Ronna Sarvas Weltman interviewed bead artists and designer, including myself, for a great article on Art Beads & Components. Along with the article there is an art bead Artisan Showcase that has me drooling! You'll see some of our favorites, including beads from our contributors and new artists that are a great discovery.
Kerry Bogert has a new feature that I'm looking forward to seeing more of called Kerry Bogert's Color Canvas. Kerry takes a very inspirational photo, creates a palette and a piece of jewelry. Love this, it really adds something unique to the magazine.
There are great wire projects for all skill levels including an awesome pair of earrings from Marsha Neal and they even have some chain maille projects that have me reaching for my jump rings. (And I'm so not a chain maille girl!)
You can find this magazine in stores now or go for instant gratification and download it right now.
