Greetings all!

Volume 31 of BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers should be printed and ready for distribution by the end of the month. It contains a variety of articles and book reviews that we hope will be of interest to the bead research and collecting communities (see below). If you are currently not a member of the Society and wish to receive this journal (and two digital newsletters), just go to the SBR membership page . You can join for 2020 at this time as well to save time and effort later on. Membership for 2019 is only $25 US for North America and $35 US for other destinations. If you just want the journal ($20 postpaid in the US and Canada; higher for overseas), visit .

With best wishes,

Karlis Karklins
Society of Bead Researchers
