sheer beauty “Ornament” _Includes other high end crafts as well as

I prefer jewelry magazines which have several projects in them, so I
subscribe to

(1) Art Jewelry magazine,

(2)_ Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist_ (formerly Lapidary Journal
– used to have a greater emphasis on lapidary articles; I once
stopped subscribing, but now the emphasis has swung back to
jewelrymaking, and I re-subscribed),

(3) Step By Step Wire Jewelry (nice, simple projects, little use
of the torch, some useful ideas; I often think of dropping my
subscription because of the simplicity, but it’s not very expensive
and some projects would be good for students),

(4) Ornament (like Sandra, I subscribe because of the sheer
beauty; it seems to me that there is a greater emphasis on jewelry
than formerly; this not a “project” magazine).

I regularly buy Belle Armoire Jewelry. It’s full of trendy
projects and new ideas. The content is rather uneven – some of the
project write-ups are totally inadequate, if not also inaccurate. But
the pictures are usually helpful. (Don’t confuse this with Belle
Armoire
or Belle Armoire’s Jewelry Affaire; if you like
rhinestones, the latter might be of interest to you.)

Happy reading!
