For decades, the ISGB has been a leader in the contemporary glass beadmaking movement. Providing education and awareness, our organization has encouraged and supported beadmakers in their artistic endeavors, both as a career and for personal enjoyment. Our members help give life to our organization’s vision of being a leader in our creative community and to expanding the innovative use of complementary mediums among artists and craftspeople.

Support through donations helps make it possible for the ISGB to continue its longstanding tradition of producing quality, broad based programming for beadmakers and flame workers worldwide. This happens through our annual conference, The Gathering, every year, our quarterly magazine Glass Bead Evolution, the monthly e-newsletter Bead Release, and scholarship opportunities within our organization as well as with industry shows like Bead&Button. The ISGB encourages growth for members and for flame workers in all art forms.

Our organization continues to offer opportunities for members to participate in traveling juried shows and we are partnering with the Society of North American Goldsmiths for joint membership, online sales opportunities, and for collaboration with metalsmiths. The ISGB Vendor Discount Program continues to thrive and we remain dedicated to the sharing of techniques, best practices, and business education as we strive to propel the contemporary glass bead movement farther into the future. Naturally as our programs expand, financial resources to support them become more vital than ever.

Donations make us a more effective organization, and it is your donation that will help ensure the ISGB stays strong and meets our fundraising goals. Please consider donating to the ISGB. Your contribution will enable our organization to continue moving forward, meeting the challenges of the future, and strengthening our drive of the contemporary glass movement. 

Thank you in advance for your generous support.
