The designs are spectacular and I love to try my hand at them. It gives me ideas too to work into my jewelry designs. I like the ads. We don't have a bead store real bead store in my town and it gives tons of ads in it.

By charlotteann

I came across volume 8 of Bead and Button magazine hiding in a collection of magazines given to me. It was so thin and different, intellectual, even, that I could not believe it was the same eye candy filled magazine that comes to my home every month. It is a very person to person magazine for the few beaders who found it! I reveled in the nostalgia. BUT... Give me pages of ads and eye candy any day. I'm so glad the magazine is a success!

Greatest Beading Magazine Ever!

By jewljunky

from Salt Lake City

I really love Bead & Button magazine because they always have the best variety of projects. I would like to see more pictures with the instructions; other than that, this is the BEST magazine on the market!

Equal Amount of Projects and Ads!

By StaceMoon

from Westminster, CA

About half of Bead & Button magazine is ads, but at least it's thicker than most other bead magazines so it does have a fair amount of projects. Also they seem to keep all the ads together in the second half along with what I think is a waste of pages for a huge list of bead shops in the US by state. Even with all that it's still my favorite along with BeadWork magazine. To me they are the same magazine. They are so much alike so if you like one you'll like the other just as much!

Eye Candy

By anna

from Lakewood, Colorado

I love this inspires me to do more work with my beads, makes me more creative and pushes me to think "out of the box". It is just about the only magazine I will look at over and over and over...and keep "forever". Even the ads are fun - I usually explore the web sites of several - just looking! If you get just one bead magazine, I would highly reccoment this one.
