Ornament Magazine - this is one of my favorite magazines that provides endless ideas and inspiration. The magazine's co-editors - Carolyn L.E. Benesh and Robert K. Liu, Ph.D have created a unique magazine that captures art in its many different forms - jewelry, beads, and fiber art. Every issue introduces new artists as well as how art and culture intersect.
