Step by Step Wire Jewelry Magazine 2012

Updated on May 16, 2013

For people who want to make jewelry craft shows, craft fairs or even online, it's essential to keep on top of trends, new products and expose yourself to new ideas. What's the market doing? Who is doing it?

The ever-popular Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine is a perfect fit for those who want to keep on top of things as there are only 6 editions produced each year - so you won't be overwhelmed with projects you don't have time for. With a full two months between editions, you've got time to look through, choose what you want to make, order the materials and find the time to make something new!

Buying Step by Step Wire Jewelry Magazine

If you don't want to miss out, you can simply subscribe to the magazine - or, you might prefer to buy individual copies, either new or second hand, online.

Step by Step Jewelry Magazine is available either in a printed version, or a digital copy - great for your portable devices and buying just what you need if you find yourself in a bead shop or at a bead fair.

Amazon as well as Ebay are my favourite sources for past copies of jewelry magazines at good prices, although the publishers do hold stocks of back copies you can buy or download.
