How else can you store beads???? Well, how about those parts cabinets for storing screws, etc, you get at probably any hardware store? Yep, I've got one of those too! I have a drawer for needles, a drawer for cording, etc. etc. etc. Mainly I have many of them labelled for "bits", shiny bits, copper bits, wood bits, leather bits - you get the gist. Found objects that maybe aren't quite beads, but could certainly be used in projects, some with holes, some without. All the drawers are labelled.
So, today's recap, in my studio there are (hopefully I won't get to twelve, like the twelve days of Christmas):
Vintage Glass Mason Jars
Round Aluminum Watchmakers Cases
