you can also sort different sizes by putting all the beads in a tube ,eg.a test tube, and gently shaking them up and down. the smaller beads will sort themselves out on the bottom and the larger ones will be on top.
(although this seems counterintuitive it's based on scientific principles of fluid mechanics. it's more commonly known as the brazil nut effect.)
