What about magazine projects?

Celtic Diamond Pendant


Several jewelry-making magazines such as Bead&Button Magazine, Art Jewelry Magazine, Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry, and Wirework Magazine regularly feature chainmaille projects, including many by Blue Buddha ambassadors.

For your convenience, Blue Buddha has a page dedicated to supply lists for popular magazine projects. We only provide kits for a select number of projects by B3 designers, so generally speaking, we do NOT have kits for most magazine projects. To purchase rings for projects in magazines have your shopping list handy and visit our Jump Ring Picker page.

If you come across a project we have not yet tested, contact us.  Our interns love to test projects to help you save time and money.

If you'd like to design a tutorial and see it published, find out how to submit a project to magazines.

Step by Step Wire

B3's founder Rebeca is a contributing editor for Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine, and she would love to hear what you have to say about their chainmaille projects and share your suggestions with the editors.  Are there any patterns you're dying to see instructions for?  Do you have a favorite designer who you think should create a tutorial?  What do you think about the selection of projects in the most recent issues?  Please send any feedback about this magazine to [email protected]
