Submit a Project to Quick + Easy Beadwork Magazine

Imagine seeing your original designs featured in a magazine. Now is your chance to make that dream come true. The editors of Beadwork magazine are seeking submissions for Winter 2017–18 Quick + Easy Beadwork, our beloved annual special issue.

What We Are Looking For

We are looking for wearable, everyday pieces of jewelry that you can make in a few hours (or, at the most, in a day). Submissions should be beadwoven necklace, bracelet, or earring designs that incorporate peyote, right-angle weave, herringbone, brick, and/or square stitches (to name a few). These beadweaving techniques can also be combined with stringing and simple wireworking. Ideal submissions will appeal to those new to seed beading or to experienced beaders looking for a quick project.
