From the Editor

Six times a year, Bead&Button magazine brings you new beading projects, helpful product reviews, and many other features that make it a must-read for beaders everywhere. It’s where we debut our newest projects and patterns, so you’ll be the first to try your hand at making them. We know you want ideas that inspire you to learn and to grow, and we know you want to feel great about what you create. At Bead&Button, we are constantly on the hunt for beautiful projects that will do all those things!

If you bead because you like to practice a relaxing and satisfying craft, Bead&Button is for you. You can count on our instructions because we carefully select and test each project before we publish it. Each issue contains basic how-tos that help you complete a piece of jewelry worry-free, start to finish.

It doesn’t stop there. At, you’ll have 24/7 access to a deep trove of additional instructions, how-tos, tips, and previously published projects. Plus:

  • B&B Extra, a downloadable PDF, delivers extra projects between each issue of the magazine. It’s available free to subscribers.
  • Our e-newsletter provides projects and patterns, as well as updates on new jewelry-making products.
  • BeadBuzz, our blog, is a way for us at Bead&Button to keep in touch with you between editions. Looks for tips, news, and chatty updates.

As our name implies, beads of all kinds are the focus of what we do, and we’re best known for our bead stitching and bead weaving patterns. Since our founding in 1994, we’ve evolved to meet your needs and interests, learning along with you as new beads and products have become available. We promise to keep rooted in the beading world we all love while exploring new ideas, products and techniques that keep our community vibrant and growing. You’ll find many techniques incorporated into our issues, but we’ll always be bead-centric!
