BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers
The articles in Volumes 1-17 (1989-2005) are available in a digital format at the SURFACE (Syracuse University Research Facility and Collaborative Environment) website which is a full-text, multi-media online database. All issues except out-of-print Volumes 3, 4, 5, 27 and 28 are available for purchase from us in a hardcopy 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.
If you find the articles interesting, consider joining the Society of Bead Researchers. For a modest membership fee ($20 North America/$30 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. Visit the main SBR site for further details and to see what other resources we offer.
