The Beading Gem Featured in Just Jewelry Magazine!

By on Friday, May 22, 2015 14 Comments

Remember the Kazuri ceramic and Samunnat Nepal polymer clay bead bracelets I made some time ago?  They just got featured in a double spread in Just Jewelry! Volume 2.   Just Jewelry! is the newest addition  to Scott Publications.  This magazine is simply full of all kinds of handmade jewelry designs and some tutorials.  The styles and techniques vary but all provided so much inspiration.



As you can see, one of the bracelets - the black and gold one - made it on the cover as well.  This pleased me no end as it raises awareness for the Kazuri and Samunnat Nepal lines from Africa and Nepal, respectively.  As you can see, the magazine's editor made sure they added the appropriate links and included the descriptions and sources I gave.


The magazine is divided into 4 main sections - necklaces, bracelets & earrings, sets and all the rest. If you like to have your work featured in a magazine, I encourage you to try this one. They are very new and keen on submissions. Just pick up a copy and see if it suits you - then email the editor! Or use their contact form on their website.





Some of the designers in the magazine clearly struggled with jewelry photography.  So make sure you have good photographs. They don't have to be National Geographic quality - but good enough so you do your designs justice!

  1. Wow, you are a covergirl Pearl! Beautiful designs. Where do you source the leather (or will I find that out if I buy the magazine :))?

    1. Thanks Willi! I didn't source the leather in the article - just the beads. I get my leather from either Goody Beads or Endless Leather - both suppliers are periodically mentioned on my blog.

  10. Wow! Beautiful designs. The finishing looks brilliant. Congrats. I'm thinking of making my own bracelets too. I found this site which sells silver jewelry components online SilverBeadsAndFindings.com I love silver so I think I’ll make silver bracelets to start with, something easier though, still learning :)
