I like it. My problem is my beads get all mixed up in my box. I don't know which is which. Need an app for that.

I run into that problem all the time. I try to keep them in the package but they inevitably fall out. Size is ok, but trying to differentiate between if it's tungsten or brass gets me.

TAP plastics has a store 30min from me. Tiny containers of all types. Add a sharpie. All my beads are stored clearly labeled.
Way better than the couple hours I spent weighing and sorting beads once after I discovered 3 leakers in the same drawer.

LOL. This is why I always use chain bead eyes instead of regular beads.

I keep my beads and hooks in the medicine containers that have lots of small compartments. My work has a health fair every year and I grab a few more every time. I mark them up with info with a Sharpie. They work great.
