Jewelry Magazines

  •   18 Karati – in Italian. Geared towards jewelry store owners or people in the gold industry.
  •   American Craft Magazine – The craft magazine for all mediums.  Lots of jewelry too. Divine inspiration. Put out by the American Craft Council.  You get six bi-monthly issues for joining PLUS free admission (on public day) to the shows.
  •   American Style Magazine has ceased publication – A magazine for collectors, artists and “cultural travelers”.  Jewelry is always somewhere in there.  Great artist’s spaces/collector’s homes/art. Another source of design inspiration.
  •  Art Jewelry Magazine Now has an online magazine called Facet Jewelry.  The paper edition has ceased publication – great magazine for the studio jeweler and crafts person – beginner to advanced.  Lots of “how-to” articles, projects and editorials.

  • bead-style Bead Style Magazine – Jewelry projects, step-by-steps, techniques, trends, etc.
  •   BeadWork Magazine – Great beading magazine for the beading community.  Projects, tips and how-to’s. An Interweave publication.
  • Belle-Armoire  Belle Armoire Jewelry – Eclectic, interesting work. A “niche” magazine featuring wearable art, mixed media, paper crafting, polymer clay, found objects, etc. Actually a bookazine – kind of a book, kind of a magazine. Who knows? Put out by Stampington & Company who also publishes a plethora of other craft and art books and magazines. What will you create?
  •   Bench Magazine -I love this magazine.  It’s got a lot of technical tricks/tips/how-to’s that are aimed at the bench jeweler. Oh and it’s FREE! They only have an online version now – they’ve gone GREEN!
  •   Canadian Jeweller Magazine – Geared to the jewelry industry and jewelry business owners.
  •   The Crafts Report – The business behind arts and crafts.  Also, lots of pictures and inspiration.
  • glass-on-metal  Glass on Metal – The Enamelist’s Magazine.  All things related to enameling:  Guilds, Workshops, Videos, Articles, etc. This magazine is available as past editions only.  It is not currently being published.
  •   In Store Magazine – Focus is on jewelry store owners.
  •   JCK – The Industry Authority (in their words).  Geared towards jewelry manufacturing. Lots of great articles and inspirations – especially for those in manufacturing.
  •   Jewellery Focus Magazine – From the UK.  Largest trade magazine in the UK.
  • jewelry-affaire  Jewelry Affaire – Easy to make jewelry from Stampington.
  •   Lapidary Journal’s Jewelry Artist Magazine – It used to be just: Lapidary Journal.  But, they changed their name.  My guess is to snag more jewelers. Hmmm?  Covers lapidary skills and techniques,  jewelry projects.  I didn’t see a mission statement on their site so, I’ll guess at their target audience:  people doing lapidary work, who also want to make jewelry to set the stones they cut, into.   Wire Jewelry, Lapidary Journal and BeadWork Magazine are all Interweave publications.
  •   Le Bijoutier International – French. Archived issues only.  Focus on manufacturing part of the jewelry industry.
  • make-and-sell  Making Jewelry Magazine – “Making Jewellery is the UK’s first and best-selling jewellery magazine.” (quote from site). Over 45 projects in each issue. “Simple stringing to metal clays, polymer, shrink plastic, wirework, silversmithing, resin, lampworking and more.”
  •   MetalClay Artists Magazine – A nice, new glossy metal clay magazine.  Replaces (and tops) the one we lost when the PMC guild stop producing Studio PMC. It also includes work, articles and information for all types of metal clay.
  •   Metalsmith Magazine – put out by the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG).  Great NEW jewelry – some of the reviews make my eyes roll into the back of my head but,  the jewelry is always intriguing and thought provoking.  Join SNAG and you get 5 print and digital issues of Metalsmith Magazine. $35.00 off on CraftBoston booth fee and free access to the “Members only” area of their site.
  •   MJSA Journal – published by MJSA. Magazine for the business of jewelry making.  Bench tips, design ideas, techniques for fabrication, etc.
  • modern-silver Modern Silver – Silver Forum, Links, Articles, Events, Book reviews, etc.
  •  Ornament Magazine –  The craft of personal adornment, as they say.  GREAT magazine.  So much fun to look at and read.  Always something new and exciting to kick-start your creativity.
  •   Rock and Gem Magazine – “Rock & Gem has been the leading magazine for the lapidary and mineral hobbyist.”  For the rockhound.
  • Solitaire Magazine – Singapore.  Industry related.
  •  Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry Magazine –  Chain Maille (mail), wire work, links, chains – anything that involves wire and creativity. Looks like you can only get past issues.
