ISGB Glass Bead Evolution Advertising

Just a very quick little post. I have just recently gotten a new work-from-home job as the advertising sales representative for the ISGB's (International Society of Glassbeadmakers) new publication. Woo-hoo! I really needed another source of income, hence the happy face.

We're publishing a brand new magazine called Glass Bead Evolution- you can see from the official blurb that follows that this magazine is going to be expanding to include other mediums and to be available to non-members in digital format. It's an exciting idea, and I'm happy to be a part of it. Ads go from a premium classified size all the way up to full page. If you want more info, or to see the media kit, email me at

   "2013 is an exciting year for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB), the leading organization for the promotion, education, and appreciation of the art of glass beadmaking for wearable, sculptural, and functional art. With its new mission, direction, and marketing and communications programs, ISGB is introducing its new publication, Glass Bead Evolution, with content that will complement its new mission statement, programs that move the organization forward, and directions that will make the magazine more than a membership publication. The organization plans on continually expanding its readership and target audience, and will strive to provide artists, designers, educators, studios, galleries, suppliers, and museums opportunities to reach new markets.

  Glass Bead Evolution is a magazine created by beadmakers for beadmakers and yet is inclusive of other artisan mediums. Every issue will feature a complementary medium while maintaining a strong emphasis on glass. Moreover, it will be in both print and digital formats and available to both members and non-members reaching artisans worldwide.

  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.

 ISGB is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary. We hope you will join us in our journey into the next 20 years. "
