As a jewellery designer and avid bead collector, I personal literally 1000’s of beads: vintage beads, Venetian glass beads from Murano, dichroic glass beads, seed beads and Delicas, bugle beads, Magatamas, pressed glass beads, gemstone beads, sterling silver beads, gold-stuffed beads, contemporary and vintage Swarovski crystal beads, etc. If I hadn’t discovered a bead storage and group system that not solely worked with the best way I design jewellery but in addition that I could preserve easily, I would never be able to discover something in my assortment!

There is a much larger audience (learn: market) for hardware and small elements organizers than for jewelry makers usually and beaders in specific. That is why among the finest designed, sturdy and sometimes portable storage organizers for beads and findings come from hardware or automotive departments or stores. When you’ve got a small-to-medium measurement bead collection and a dedicated craft work house the place it may well live, then a number of small hardware components items with small pull-out drawers could be just the ticket.
Sturdy, safe latches Practically every beader has skilled the frustration of by chance dropping or knocking over a field of beads (why are they virtually at all times tiny seed beads???) after which having to search for and retrieve individually as many of the slippery devils as she will find within an unknown radius of the place the container landed. That’s why I a lot prefer bead storage that can be latched securely. The sturdy latches on the Stanley 25-compartment small parts organizer case preserve the lid closed until I actively open them. I never have to fret about one of many instances opening unexpectedly whereas I’m carrying it round. I’ve also unintentionally dropped bead-stuffed instances fairly just a few times they have never come unlatched.
