Brand New: Quick & Easy Beadwork

Desert Thistle Earrings by Kristen Winter
Feb/March 2013 Beadwork

We're so excited to announce that we're now accepting submissions for our first-ever Quick & Easy Beadwork, a special issue from the editors of Beadwork magazine! Many of today's hottest fashion trends incorporate stylish beadwoven jewelry that can be worn every day–and can be made in a day or less. And that's just what we're bringing to you. This issue will include pieces that beaders of all experience levels can enjoy–from
DIY-ers who've never beaded before and are looking for a new craft to experienced designers who'd like a quick weekend project to wear to a party or whip up as a gift. We want to see simple techniques (peyote, herringbone, brick, right-angle weave, and/or square stitches) used in fresh and interesting ways that are fun to make and wear. This is your chance to invoke your inner fashionista and put your beading needles to work!

Keep in mind: We do not accept projects that have been previously published in books and magazines or on websites (even Etsy). If any portion of your submission has been published previously, please let us know when and where. Also, your submission MUST represent your original work–it is both unethical and undesirable to submit a project that you have learned or copied from someone else.

Submissions deadline: We are accepting emailed submissions now through March 25, 2013, and we may request that you send in the actual piece before a final decision is made. Visit for complete submission guidelines.

We so look forward to seeing your creations!

Bead chic,

Kate Wilson
Project Editor
