CHA Mega Show 2014 | Jesse James Beads

Jessie James BeadsThe CHA 2014 Mega Show floor was the first time that I got to see the Jesse James Beads mixes all in one spot.  It was eye candy for the jewelry maker soul.  I just loved looking all the strings of different types and colors of beads hanging on their bead wall, which was taller than I was.  You could not walk past the bead wall and not stop to admire the different shapes and textures of the beads on display.

Jessie James BeadsI really like working with the Jesse James Bead mixes. They are sold online (at Amazon) in small collections of different fashion colors and styles of beads which are all mixed together into one elegant affordable package. I can then take the set and create several pieces of jewelry that work well together. I have purchased different collections on Amazon and enjoyed working with each one. Below is a picture of a shoe that they had on display at their booth, which is accented with their beads.

Jessie James Double Flower Fairies EmbellishmentsThey also offer themed embellishments which are great for Scout or kids’ craft projects.

Jessie JamesThe Christmas line is so cute and versatile too.  The tiny gingerbread men could make cute earrings, pins and pendants for the holiday.   The Jesse James Bead website offer some project ideas and excellent close up photos of their various beads and embellishments.

I have been crafting since I was a child and I love seeing what others create. I live near the beach so everything around me inspires me. I also enjoy activities where I re-purpose something old & discarded & make it into something cool. My favorite mantra is "Re-use, recycle, and re-make".

    Thank you for the great review, Maria! I, too, love the Jesse James line and have beaucoup of the buttons. Many times I buy them not having a clue what I’m going to do with them but they are so imaginative I can’t help myself! I appreciate you mentioning about Amazon having them and about the Jesse James website having project ideas. For some reason I never think to go to the actual company website of a product – LOL! I’m so used to just getting them from an online or local store and sometimes reading projects on blogs that I never think to check the website of the company. I’ll make sure to do this.
