A bead scoop is a tool used for picking up seed beads from your beading surface and returning them to a storage container.
What is it made out of?
Bead scoops can be made from metal, plastic or even cardboard. You can make an “emergency” bead scoop simply by folding a small piece of card stock, cardboard, or paper down the middle.
What does it look like?
Bead scoops come in several different styles. Some are made to look like miniature scoops or shovels, and some are made from long, curved pieces of thin metal.
How do I use it?
To use a bead scoop, simply slide the open or pointed end of the scoop into your pile of beads and transfer the beads into their storage container.
