Contributor Guidelines for Bead/Jewelry/Mixed Media Artists

Here's an October 2007 update to the links and info below...I added links to Stringing magazine, and corrected a few others. Let me know if you have additions or corrections to add!

Here are all the beadwork, jewelry and mixed media publications I know of that accept unsolicited article queries and work to be featured in their gallery pages. Each mag has its own procedures -- some pay, some don't; some request you send a brief email first, some have deadlines, themes, etc. Improve your odds of getting published by familiarizing yourself with each magazine and its submission guidelines!

Note: all the links ending in .pdf require Adobe Acrobat Reader to open.

  1. Wow. That's a lot of work to help people out. Very nice of you. You help make the world a nicer place.

  2. Thank you 8-) It took a little web searching when I first put it together, now I just have to add and tweak it now and then.

  3. Thanks Mary - I find myself being drawn more towards mixed media and altered art and am constantly looking for sources of inspiration AND places to send the results of my perspiration should I ever get bold enough!

  4. I don't know if you'd be interested in posting some Canadian Magazines as well, but "A Needle Pulling Thread"
    is a good publication, they concentrate on fiber arts, however, they are very interested in beaded jewelry :

    And we also have a new beading magazine called "Canadian Beading":

  5. Thank you Jewels! Just the kind of info I'd love to include. 8-)


Thanks for your comment! It will be reviewed and posted ASAP.
