      you know what works the best for me if you can get them.
      those little one ounce plastice to go cp with lids made by solo.
      they stack great in my shelf and the lid works wonderfuly just put a few beads on the lid and they pop right on my needle.

        I use medicine bottles, because my kiddo's cant open them and spill them every where, there was one time one of them got it open but they really had to work at it, but when they get bigger im thinking on storing them in little containers with lids and labling them.
        I got a fevah! And the only cure is more cowbell!!!

          Yeah my mom bought an case so know she keeps her small beads in. She got in Rocky Boys walmart. She bought two of them and they keep her beads separated and not mixing.

            I have a relative who works at the shipyard and he started collecting the containers that electrical tape came in. They are about 3.5" wide an 1" deep and are clear plastic. I can store about 12 or them in a plastic shoe container. They were free as the guys were tossing them by the boxful. What is really neat too is that you can use the lids to hold small amounts of beads for beading projects.

            I also store my hanks in fishing tackle boxes. The clear plastic ones with adjustable dividers. They work great for me and I can stack them.

              How to figure how many beads. Please!
              by Traditional Rally
              I've been planning a full Mens tradish outfit for myself for about a year now. All of my patterns are on backing and I plan to mass order my beads for the sake of matching. Now I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW MANY HANKS TO ORDER. I am in great need of some "Old Indian Tricks". I plan to use size 11s...

              Weird Bead Names
              by chirapachegurl
              I'm pretty sure that many of you haven't came across a tube or a hank of beads that every bead is the exact same shape, that's what i would call the impossible perfect tube/hank of beads. For the odd shaped beads i have names for them, like the flat ones i call them saucers for flying saucers, and...

              Hi everyone,
              I'm new here, and I could really use some advice about beads. I'm getting ready to start a new dress (northern buckskin), just working out the colors and whatnot. I was looking at an online bead catalog, it's huge and they have stuff listed that I've never used before....

              Mixing Beads
              by BeadMan
              In response to the thread on favorite beads, I'd like to spin in a slightly different direction and ask about mixing beads. BLACKBEAR used "matte with luster" beads, TIGGER uses "regular with translucent," ALASKASHADOWWOLF uses "translucent for the outline and opaque for the...
