BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers
PDFs of the articles in Volumes 1-22 (1989-2010), 24-25 (2012-2013), and 27-28 (2015-2016) are available on the SURFACE (Syracuse University Research Facility and Collaborative Environment) website which is a full-text, multi-media online database. All journal issues except out-of-print Volumes 3-5, 24, 27-28 and 33 are available for purchase from us in a hard copy format. The sale of those helps fund future issues and our websites, so we encourage you to consider adding them to your physical library to aid us in our work. To see what each issue covers and to order hard copies, click on the Our Publications link at the top of this page.
If you find the articles interesting, consider joining the Society of Bead Researchers. For a modest membership fee ($25 North America/$35 elsewhere), you will receive the annual journal as well as the biannual newsletter, The Bead Forum. To keep the Society and its publications vital, we not only need your financial support, but also material in the form of articles, news items, conference announcements, and recent publication notifications.
