The mission of the ISGB is to preserve the rich and diverse traditions of the art of glass bead making and glass working techniques; promote educational initiatives and professional development; and encourage innovative use of complementary media among artists and craftspeople.

Digital Magazine



Glass Bead Evolution is a magazine created by beadmakers for beadmakers, and is inclusive of other mediums. Every issue features a complementary medium while maintaining an emphasis on glass.

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


Back issues are available.
