BeadStyle is my go-to magazine for beading. I tend to focus most of my work around stringing and simple wirework, which perfectly matches what BeadStyle offers in it's pages. Other titles are more about beadweaving and fancier beading stitches, which occasionally pops up here, but it's not the dominant focus. I use it primarily for inspiration and an idea of current trends in colors and styles. It also provides easy to read directions and good information on where to purchase items used in various projects. Terrific for the beginning beader, too.
