The Seed Bead Tube Tower Organizer by BeadSmith

Inspiration at Your Fingertips

By

I travel a lot with my beads. And when I do, it's always been a challenge to pack my seed beads. I have never liked to pack them in little plastic bags and always prefer to keep them in the original tubes so that I can see the source and the color number. But packing dozens of tubes of seed beads to carry with me, whether on a plane or to a farmer's market, has always been a little bit of a hassle.

This great organizer by BeadSmith allows me to keep up to 138 small (3") tubes of seed beads or 69 6" tubes. The tubes are held securely in place by elastic straps, and they make it very easy to slide the tubes in and out of the unit.

You can use the Seed Bead Tube Tower as an organizer. There is a strip of Velcro on each edge of the unit that allows you to stand it up on a table or other work area. It allows you to see, at a glance, the colors and shapes of seed beads you have right in front of you. If you work on multiple projects at once, like I do, you can even organize the beads by project so that they are always handy and you can easily switch from one project to the next.

For travel, the unit folds over onto itself and slides into a plastic zippered pouch. It fit very neatly in the bottom of my bead tote and took up much less room than a regular tackle box.

While working at home, I found this organizer to be a great way for me to clear up the clutter of seed beads on my work table. It is compact, lightweight, easy to use, easy to store and makes organizing your seed bead stash simple. I plan on purchasing more of these to use as a way to store and organize all of my seed beads by color so that I know exactly where to look for just the right shade.

To purchase the Seed Bead Tube Tower, contact Helby Import Company to find a bead shop near you or ask for it at your local bead shop.
