Today kicks off National Get Organized Week, also known as GO Week! If you’re anything like us, sometimes your bead stash can get out of hand and you just need to get organized. This is the perfect week to think about how to best store your beading supplies, so we’re offering some of our favorite organization options. Plus, you could even win some awesome organization supplies of your own. Keep reading to find out how!
Did you know we have a whole section on our website for storage and organization items? We do right here and it’s full of wonderful supplies to keep your craft studio (whether you have a whole room or a dining room table) neat and tidy. We have everything from simple zip bags to amazingly functional trays and tool cases.
One of our favorite ways to stay organized is with the Bead Storage Solutions System trays and containers. The containers and trays all feature clear plastic, so it’s easy to see what you have. These items are very high-quality, too. The containers feature lids that snap shut and stay shut, so you don’t have to worry about all of your organization flying out the window because of bead spills. The assorted bead storage tray is great to start with, because it comes with trays in various sizes and even labels so you can keep track of prices and item codes. With other tray and container configurations available, this system is completely customizable to what you need. See all of the options here.
If you’re a seed beader, we recommend cases like this one. Much like the Bead Storage Solutions system, it’s easy to see all of your seed bead colors when you use these containers and they are a compact option when it comes to storage. The containers are also easy to work from, if you’re someone who’s hesitant to dump their seed beads out onto the work surface.
Now that you have your beads organized, it’s time to figure out how to organize your tools. We love these tool pouches for holding our essential tools neatly in place. They zip closed when you’re not using them, for easy storage. This tool pouch is available without tools, or you can buy a set that comes with all the tools if you’re just starting out with jewelry-making or want to invest in a new set.
Beading on the Go
How do you keep your beads organized when you travel? We love the Bead Buddy Junior bead board and travel case. It can hold a couple of tools and beads for the project you’re working on. The case snaps closed and keeps everything in place, so you can take it anywhere! Both sides of the case feature an attached bead mat, which makes the perfect work surface.
