Boasting an impressive array of different projects for those of pretty much every skill level, Step By Step Wire Jewellery is perfect for those who love to make their own accessories.
This bimonthly magazine focuses on the art of making jewellery from wire and beads, something simple that can be attempted with minimal expense. Each issue contains great ideas and projects, thoroughly explained and illustrated in step-by-step guides. This magazine also features ideas and inspiration for projects to create at home, covering different types and colours of bead available and an explanation of the basics of wire jewellery making.
We have always applauded the ‘make your own’ spirit here at Newsstand, welcoming magazines that follow this philosophy in all manner of forms. We have publications devoted to growing your own food, lots of embroidery and cross-stitch magazines, a fair few woodworking and electronics journals and more. If it can be made, and there is a magazine about making it, then we will almost certainly stock it.
Step By Step is a great example of what makes this kind of magazine so excellent. They live or die on the quality of the instructions they contain within – after all no-one’s going to buy a magazine that inadequately explains the processes and methods involved in production. Imagine for a moment a magazine that simply stated what you needed, then described it in the manner of a friend telling you what to do, full of guesses, approximations and inaccuracies. As you can imagine, this simply would not do.
Step by Step, as the name suggests, offers a step-by-step guide to making the jewellery featured within, with every step carefully illustrated with photography and carefully explained. Without such a meticulous, thorough attitude to description, this magazine would have gotten nowhere. NB
