    Sorry to be a bit negative but a few years ago it became obvious that many of the same designers were being published in each addition – some more than once in the same issue – which resulted in what I felt was the exclusion of so many other designers that weren’t well known. I really liked seeing the work of those we may not be exposed to otherwise and I let my subscription to BeadWork lapse because that had changed. I would renew my subscription if I knew you were, once again, showcasing a greater diversity of work – especially by unknown designers.

      Sandra, thank you very much for your comment and the time you took to reach out. Please know, we welcome submissions from anyone and everyone! It is always our goal to deliver the best issue we can and to share with our readers all designers are willing to put forward. You may see designs from the same artist in the same issue and the same artist from magazine to magazine — these are designs we feel meet our criteria not that we are excluding others from having their work shown.
      I truly believe we all start at the beginning and have a path to follow. I love being able to help others along their path no matter a name I’ve heard before or someone new. And I love being able to let their voice and art shine for all to see whether in print, online, in a video or a classroom.
      We welcome your submissions and we encourage you to share our message with all in your circle. Thank you in advance! — Tammy
