What will be on the cover of issue #150??!?

The Bead&Button magazine team has been thinking a lot about silver lately. It’s the traditional gift for a 25th anniversary, and we’re about to celebrate ours. We can’t wait to share the excitement with you!


The December 2018 issue of Bead&Button will officially kick off a year-long celebration of this milestone. Like any big party, we’re busy planning lots of details in advance. In the coming weeks and months, watch for special announcements about:


  • Jewelry projects from top bead and jewelry artists who are helping us celebrate with special designs, many of them silver-themed. Watch for gorgeous jewelry by Nancy Cain, Heidi Kummli, Sherry Serafini, Melanie de Miguel, Adrienne Gaskell, Isabella Lam, June Malone, Melissa Grakowsky Shippee, and more.
  • A silver-themed Design Challenge anyone can participate in.
  • A limited-edition commemorative bead.
  • Looks back at 25 wonderful years of beading and jewelry-making – trends, people and fun peeks into the past.
  • And more!


We will invite you to join the celebration. To mark 25 years as the premiere beading magazine, we’re collecting stories and reflections from our community. Watch the Bead&Button Facebook page to participate in our polls about how you got started in beading. And soon we'll be collecting stories about your favorite beading memories, for possible use in our celebration issues! 

And as we look back, we’ll also look forward to many more years together. Thanks for participating in memories past and good times to come!
