Shop Small With JJB: Jesse James & Beadalon

Posted on November 06 2020

Support our fellow small businesses with the Shop Small Collection by Jesse James Beads! 

Beadalon and Jesse James Beads have been friends for a long time. Not only do our products and staff members get along so well, we are also neighbors in the state of Pennsylvania, both companies manufacturing many of our goods right here in the USA!

Jesse James Beads is a small business with a growing reach- did you know we were born out of a garage in oh-little-town-of Bethlehem? Pennsylvania, not Israel - but still very cool! Karen James & Jesse James (Sarah's mom and dad) created the Jesse James & Co with the desire to create products that were fashionable, affordable and inspiring for creators in the craft and design industry.

We love what we do. We work with perseverance, passion and gumption to bring the Jesse James Beads brand to life. Our brand believes in quality products that inspire, education, collaboration, friendship and fun! And that is what makes JJB and Beadalon such great buds!

Beadalon is the perfect compliment to Jesse James Beads. The tools and spools, findings and fun that Beadalon creates is a phenomenal match to the beads created by the design house at Jesse James Beads. Not only do our products go together, our people play so well together too. The upcoming Destination North Pole will be Beadalon and JJB's 4th shared event. Our first was the BYOBead event at last summer's Bead Fest Philadelphia, then the Tucson Adventure and finally this past summer's epic Summer Camp online event.

Ombre colored wired? YES please!

This past year Beadalon created their all new line of multi color wire - 3 gauge sizes for wire working, in 6 gorgeous ombre colors. And thus, a new JJB design idea was born...

JJB Color Envy Bead Mixes

Colorful wire + colorful beads = design happiness! The Color Envy line from JJB pairs so perfectly with the Beadalon Multi-Color Wire. This is our second release of JJB Color Envy. These are limited edition bead sets, each designed and packaged in Bethlehem PA by the JJB Design Team.

This one is called "Canyon" - Do you see the little flower metal square beads?

Sparkly JJB bohos, feather charms and copper - no wonder this one is named "Wild Side"
