You brought the festive spirit, JJB fans! We're thankful for all of you who entered our Make it Merry Contest on Facebook. See the entries below, and remember: next Christmas is only 363 days away!

All Heart,

Your Friends at Jesse James Beads


Here's How You Made it Merry! Thank you to all of the JJB fans who entered our Make it Merry Contest on Facebook. There were so many festive designs...we had a hard time choosing! The grand prize winner is Lucinette A. with her hand-painted poinsettia centerpiece surrounded by 'Tis the Season beads. Click to see all of the entries!

Best Overall Design: Lucinette Alvarado

A true statement piece! Lucinette combined her two loves--art and jewelry--in this set, featuring a hand-painted poinsettia focal piece and plenty of 'Tis the Season and Grenadine beads!

Best Use of JJB: Colleen Lentini

We wish snowflakes looked this glamorous! Colleen used Snowflake Bead Blanks (sold out) and 'Tis the Season beads to create a dazzling pendant. She used even more JJBs to deck out the necklace!

Best "Ugly Sweater" Style Piece: Carm Gargiulo

Carm created this little giving tree for an "ugly sweater" office party, but her bracelets and earrings are so pretty! These designs feature 'Tis the Season and Santa's Workshop beads along with large tassels and clay peppermint candies.
