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.

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!
