Default How Do All Store Your Beads

I found these following one sale at Joann's website Jewelry Designer Bead Storage System*: embellishment cases*: scrapbook storage*: storage*: Shop | Joann.com

There is a store near my house and they always honor the website prices. I think I'm going to pick up a couple this evening after work.

I use 2x3 Pop Top Boxes. Each box can hold six different sizes of beads. For what I tie, that will cover everything from midge size to midsized stonefly size. Each box will cover a different bead color.

I use the weekly pill box string. I removed the lettering (M-T-W) with acetone then made my own labels.
Glass beads I used the stacked screw type cylinders since size isn't an issue. No labels.
I'll take pictures later and edit this post.

I have bead containers too. Just like both of you have. I also have some in individual packets, that I have a special drawer for.

My beads seem to be everywhere, I have double sided pill boxes and bags, and film canisters, does anyone have a good magnet tool to pick up/organize/move their beads and hooks?

I got a cool extending arm magnet for a couple of bucks at Auto Zone.

Dang Jimmie, you need to get out and fish more, your way to organized! LOL! You should see my mess, all my beads are in one big tuperware container, I just throw the beads in there in the original packing, trying to sort through the mess is a big problem. I sure like your idea!

Default Re: How Do All Store Your Beads

You're right on a couple of counts Larry. I do need to fish more
The initial set-up is a pain. After that it's really nice. Used to be you could get those cheapo pill boxes at the drug store for nothing. Now there is a little charge but not much.

That's exactly what I use also. I have two so far, 1 for tungsten beads, the other for brass. I like to keep colors separated, so I use a label maker to put a small size label on the each container. Keeps everything very nicely organized.

I bought mine at Michaels, and they always have coupons you can print off their website.

Notenuftoys, Flyfishing, as therapy for your OCD, isn't working!
