2014 is an exciting year for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB), the 
leading organization for the promotion, education, and appreciation of the art of glass 
beadmaking for wearable, sculptural, and functional art. With its new mission, direction, 
and marketing and communications programs, ISGB is introducing its new publication, 
Glass Bead Evolution. The magazine features content that complements its new mission 
statement, programs that move the organization forward, and directions that make it 
more than a membership publication.

Glass Bead Evolution is created by beadmakers for beadmakers and yet is 
inclusive of other mediums. Every issue features a complementary medium while 
maintaining a strong emphasis on glass. Moreover, it is available in both print and digital 
formats and to both members and non-members reaching artisans worldwide. 

Glass Bead Evolution provides its readership robust content that includes insight into 
artists’ private worlds, tours of fascinating venues, tips and techniques for both glass 
and complementary mediums, a showcase of exquisite work, and reviews of tools, 
materials, tutorials, and books.
