WHO ARE YOU?
and Co. has been in business for over 24 years. The company started in 1986,
selling apparel components to the leading manufacturers and fashion designers. Clients
included: Jones New York, Botany 500, Danskin, Izod, etc. Jesse James and Co branched
into the craft industry 18 years ago and became a worldwide leader in embellishments.
WHY DID YOU START SELLING BEADS?
Jesse James and Co saw a niche that needed to be filled. The goal was to fix the obvious
notion that craft stores sell low-quality beads. Jesse James and Co made the decision to sell
top-quality beads, or better put “bead store quality” beads to these stores.
SO, WHY BESIDES CRAFT STORES, DO
YOU WANT TO SELL TO BEAD STORES?
Well, because the craft stores still have a craft mentality. Craft stores’ premier focus is on
money and the bottom line, not on fashion or the best products. They all do well with our
selections, but they still essentially have a bad selection of beads overall. The philosophy at
Jesse James and Co is that craft store beads make a craft, while jewelry grade beads make a
piece of jewelry. Jesse James and Co’s goal is to reach a more sophisticated end user.
O.K. WHY SHOULD WE BUY FROM YOU?
Jesse James and Co has a great sales staff that offers fantastic personal assistance to
wholesale accounts. Advice is also offered to Broad Street Beads after receiving questions
from the general consumer. Jesse James and Co is well stocked with quality and assortments
of beads at competitive prices. Besides being special and different, Jesse James and Co offers

WHAT ARE DESIGNER PACKS?
While designing our line, our trend experts studied leading fashion magazines (Vogue , Elle,
Vanity Fair) and took the top designer color palettes and then combined beads that matched
the designer outfit exactly. The packs are an ideal starting kit for the jewelry maker. You can
add a great focal piece from your selection to complete our pack. It is also ideal for the novice
beader who can become overwhelmed by a huge selection of beads in a bead store.
James and Co suggests that you, the customer, choose a fashion magazine and select a
designer outfit of your liking. We guarantee that you will be able to find a Designer Pack that
matches the trend of the season, and in doing so, be able to create a matching piece of jewelry
I’VE TRIED BEAD PACKAGES BEFORE, BUT…
Perhaps the ones tried were ones that have been mainstays in craft stores for a very long time.
These are craft beads, designed to make a craft. Jesse James’ packages are totally different
and designed especially for the better beader. It has a sophisticated look. It is night and day
different from anything else that has ever been offered in package form (not to mention , it is
the best value on the market).
WHAT KIND OF BEADS DO YOU SELL?
Our beads are the same beads used by leading designers and accessory manufacturers. Jesse
James and Co buys from the same factories. You will find these beads on jewelry in boutique
stores and in upscale department stores. You will not see these "better beads" in discount
