This topic caught my eye from Bead Trends magazine:

Bead Trends is currently looking for designs with the following themes for our October 2010 issue:
Handmade Beads - Whether polymer clay, PMC, or lampwork, artists make the most beautiful designs with handmade beads.
If you would like to submit your work to this publication, please e-mail a photograph, the name or title of your piece, and contact information to: beadsubmit@beadtrendsmag.com.

If submitting multiple pieces, please send a separate e-mail and photograph for each design.

Deadline for the October 2010 issue is 11:59 p.m. MDT, April 30th, 2010. All ideas should be your original work and not previously published. Visit their submission page for complete details.

How perfect since I just today recieved a parcel in the post with the most wonderful beads by heather powers/humblebeads and have another one arriving shortly. I would love to be published in a bead magazine! Hope those beads could help me :-)

Heather, I just found out from Kelly M. in California that there's a bracelet with one of my polymer clay beads in this month's "Bead Trends" magazine - I guess I'll have to look up a copy to see whose design it was and which bead it was... Exciting!

Let me see if I have this straight, send in photos of beads we have made. If they like the beads, they will request the actual bead, so it can be used in a completed item.

No, this is a call for finished jewelry using art beads.
