Beading Tips: Organize

Many craft stores sell basic craft organizers. Unfortunately, these cases are often rudimentary; it's difficult to see the beads, and they tend to mix together. Beaders tend to quickly collect a vast variety of beading supplies. Here are a few ideas for organizing beads.

Cheap and Useful:
Clear containers are best. You can see what you have. organizers that allow for individual types to be kept together.

To avoid mixing beads, I found buying little containers similiar to
the ones tic tacs are packaged in help.

Containers meant for weekly pills are great for organizing seed beads.

Quick Tips:
Keep similar beads together. It's easier to design jewelry if cordinating beads are near each other. Organize by color, texture, and finish.
