I love working with seed beads, but boy do they end up everywhere (I find them in the carpet, between the couch cushions, in crevices on the table... I could go on). Recently I've been looking at different types of containers I could use to contain the beads while I am working on a project. Here are some of my ideas:
- Ramekins: I thought this would work better... but because of the stiff sides I have trouble getting the beads with my needle.
- Votive holders: smaller than the ramekins, so great for seed beads... but difficult to get the unused beads back into their tubes.
- Ice cube trays: good in theory... but they have small deep holes... I've had trouble getting the beads with my needle. Also, I made a mess trying to put my beads away afterwards.
