Making Jewellery magazine has had a face lift and the brand new look has been revealed with the latest issue – Is. 94!
On sale now, the newly designed pages allow more space for projects, extending steps that were previously limited from 6, 9 and 12 on to a much longer spread. This is great for designers like myself as it allows us to create much more detailed projects – and instructions! For the reader it means projects will be even easier to follow and each step comes with a photo or diagram.
What’s more, for the first time the magazine explores techniques in detail, with wonderful spreads dedicated to delving into specific areas of jewellery making.
A detailed look at bead embroidery
This issue I was excited to be one of the first to make the most of these wonderful new sections of the magazine. I take an in-depth look at bead embroidery, with a focus on what you can do off the backing fabric as well as on.
There are several techniques for you to try including fringing and freeform stitching, plus several designs for inspiration to suit a range of skill level. The new layout allows for a gallery of inspirational photos from myself and other artists, to tantalise your creative taste buds.
From a designer’s perspective the new techniques pages are a LOT more work, (this one involved some late nights for me!) but I think you’ll agree they look great and are super helpful for jewellery makers wanting to expand their repertoire and skill level.
When you get your hands on a copy of the latest issue I’d love to hear what you think – both on my projects and the new look! Get in touch on Facebook, Instagram – or leave a comment below!
