Jesse James Beads has unique bead earring kitsYou guessed it!  We have bags o’ beads in sets ready to make earrings with!  Check them out in our “WHAT’s NEW” section on the website.
Earring Bead Kits from JesseJamesBeads.comThe beads come in all colors, but for this post I’m using the brown bead set.  Brown seems to be my go-to color these days because it’s still a bit chilly where I live, but I’ve been wearing bright pastels because it’s technically “spring.”  These earrings go with pretty much anything!
