Beads and stuff....sorted

Well, after two days of procrastinating, or maybe that should be procraftinating, the bead tub is finally sorted. Found things I'd forgotten about, and found I was missing a few necessary things, like jump rings. E-bay soon sorted that out though. So this was what I started with.

Found out my bead mat I made ages ago, just a piece of velvet stuck onto some thick card. Stops the little buggers rolling everywhere. I've also got one of those bracelet/necklace maker /holder thingys- you know, the grey one with the channels for various lengths, *somewhere* sigh.

A case of chuck it all out and start sorting.

Making headway.

Mainly my beads are the semi precious stone type.

Now to pack all the trays away.

A tray full of findings................

.....and one of beads.

And job done. I have a feeling that if I manage to get to the NEC for the Hobbycrafts show this year, I may be adding to this stash.

Ha Shaz remember this process well, I had to do this myself too and it all is so much easier to find now. Great job done:) Read your WOYWW post and boy you do look good considering you have had major surgery. Good for you and all the very best of wishes for future treatment and surgery. We have been there with our daughter so now what you are going through. Take care and do as Beloved Hubby tells you :D

Only two days Shaz, I was thinking I'd got you on my side, but no....! I didn't realise you were a jeweller really, when you said beads I kinda just thought about a tray of lovely colours...you've got some serious kit there. So now, I have to admire lack of procrastination and patience!
