Jewelry Design Battle Royale at The Bead & Button Show

Join Jesse James Beads for an insider look at the 2018 Jewelry Battle Royale sponsored by Beadaon, Tierracast and more. Watch jewelry designers create jewelry in an hour long competition. It's like Chopped for jewelry makers! Designs are hot and the pressure is on.

Peep this: 14 designers, one hour of time, one project to make...and $1000+ in prizes on the line!

Now, there may be prizes, but the ultimate one was the joy of making alongside such incredible designers in our creative industry - Brenda Schweder, Tammy Honaman, Sandra Lupo and Fernando Dasilva, just to name a few

Here's my walk to the Design Royale - an insider's look at the building excitement for the event!

Each designer was given the same set of beads and tools to work with - and what a spread it was! An entire tackle box of Tierracast, every Beadalon tool you could dream of, Dakota Stones and, of course, Jesse James Beads. We provided the Design Royale Bead Mix and Tassel Set - both available at the shop for you to purchase while supplies last



Every designer was given a huge kit of beads to use, and an hour to create. Here's a look at the designers in action, followed by our favorite finished pieces!


^^ These are mine!! I had so much fun creating them


The Jewelry Battle Royale brought together a tremendous group of creators. Not only did we make, we got to chit chat, have cocktails and snacks, and celebrate what it means to be a creative person pursuing their dream.

Please take a moment to vote for your favorite design! The winner will receive a $500 shopping spree from Beadalon, a $500 shopping spree from Tierracast, and a whole bunch of swag. If Jesse James Beads wins (that's those bohemian danglers designed by yours truly), we will be give our prizes to you, our amazing fans!! Voting ends Thursday June 14. Click to vote


Thank you so much for the love and support you give to our industry and us here at Jesse James Beads. We are so grateful for you! Cheers to your love of making and pursuing your creative passion!


All Heart,

Sarah James
