Glass Bead Evolution is the emagazine of the ISGB and is created by beadmakers for beadmakers. Every issue features a complementary medium while maintaining a strong emphasis on glass. Each issue is provided quarterly, as a digital download and is free as a part of ISGB membership. Back issues may be purchased by members or non-members and certain back issues are still available in print. See below.

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, safety articles, a showcase of exquisite work, and reviews of tools, materials, tutorials, and books.
