Jesse James Beads' Trick or Treat Beads

What Kind Of Halloween Magic Can You Find In A Soft Flex Design Kit?

If you want an idea of what you might find in a  Soft Flex Company Kit, check out Sparkle by Monica's latest video. Our kits may be a mystery until they are unboxed at the end of each month, but you can get an unbiased opinion about the products inside by watching YouTube designers that are not affiliated with Soft Flex. YouTube creators offer a look at the contents and then give you a commentary about their thoughts. Sometimes they even design jewelry on the fly and let us see how they envision the contents coming together.

This infectious video is a treat. Our approving owls thought it was a real hoot. You will have a howling time watching this cute video but watch our for ear worms! If you are not singing Jolene by the end of this video, you are made of sterner stuff than we are - Owl-Leen, Owl-Leen, Owl-Leen, Owl-Leeeeeeen!

Trick Or Treat Jewelry Making Party With Jesse James Beads - Kristen Fagan & Brittany Chavers

Children are precious during the holidays. But let's face it, adults need to have some fun too! We joined the undead horde at  Jesse James Beads and threw a Trick Or Treat party for all of the grownups out there. This was a two day event featuring four spooky good designers. This hair raising party was a haunting good time. Before the event kicked off, we offered a kit full of components. Jesse James Beads offered a companion kit full of beads. If you had purchased each kit, you could follow the videos and make the jewelry that was made during the live shows. You could also make your own Halloween jewelry. Our friends that had purchased both kits were given access to a Zoom after party where we imbibed some delicious spirits and had a celebration of the scariest holiday of the year.

Kristen Fagan filmed her segment and made a  Halloween necklace with a scary spider as a pendant. This was a fun spin on a plastic decoration that is so common place during the month of October. She wire wrapped the spider and let it guard the amazing design she finished. Probably not a gift for an arachnophobe, but spider lovers have to agree that this piece of jewelry is a perfect homage to our eight legged friends!

Brittany Chavers showed us how to make Halloween earrings and a mysterious bracelet. Her pumpkin earrings are perfect for a spirited party or Halloween ensemble. Brittany's bracelet is as gorgeous as it is eerie. She opted to use three strands of Soft Flex Beading Wire. She admits she doesn't always work with Soft Flex and was stunned by how colorful it was and the fact that you could expose the wire on a design instead of concealing it. She was also amazed that you could knot the wire. We think she made a wonderful jewelry set for Halloween!

Trick Or Treat Jewelry Making Party With Jesse James Beads - Sara Oehler & Deb Floros

Ghost host, Sarah James, returned for another night of blood curdling fun! The second night of this Trick Or Treat event kicked off with Deb Floros. Deb is the owner and skeleton lord of Deb Luvs Jewelry Designs. Deb gave us a peek into her life and operating her bead sales.  Sara Oehler joined the party and we were treated to a costume party at her house. Sara's three cute kids showed off their  Halloween costumes and then promised mommy that they would all be very quiet during the jewelry demonstration. Join us for some spooky fun!

This was a fun time. We got to watch two designers that have different methods of making jewelry.  Sara tends to grab and go. She often unboxes kits from Soft Flex and sometimes opens mystery kits from other companies. She is used to opening a box of beading supplies in front of a live audience and just going with the flow and using beading supplies she feels will make compelling design. She is great at designing on the fly. For this segment she gave us a real treat - she made tassel earrings and a braided bracelet. Her earrings look like little purple ghosts and purple is such a mystical  Halloween color! She paired her earrings with a braided bracelet that is great for beaders that love the layered look. Be the most bewitching ghoul on the block this year!

Deb Floros showed us how to lay out design elements so there is a crystal ball vision of what the finished piece might look like. She placed her Jack O' Lantern beads out and showed us how she planned to use them in her design. She wire wrapped beads and tassels onto her scary little pumpkins. Rather than stringing the whole design with Soft Flex, she chose to use it as part of a handmade tassel. We think she made a truly otherworldly design. Be a pumpkin queen this Halloween!

Trick Or Treat After Party

Anybody that had purchased a kit from both Jesse James Beads and Soft Flex Company was granted exclusive access to an after party. The after party featured wine tasting and fun. It was a great relaxed meet-up amongst beading friends and jewelry designers. We hope you joined us. If not, you can see what Sara made during the after show. We had a blast. Thank you for joining the fun!
