Keeping Beads Separated on the Table

by Pax Design by Marion

I use large gaskets I bought at a Hardware store to keep my seed beads separated by color when I am working on a piece. The gaskets lie flat on the work surface and are large enough to let me grab the beads right up with the needle. No more mixed colors!

Thanks, Marion, for sharing your tip!

Size of Gasket?
by: Deborah

Do you have a photo of the gaskets with beads inside? Or what size are they?

hooray for gaskets NEW

Thank you for sharing this idea. It has always been a pain to clean up the unused beads after I finish each project. The gaskets don't impact my ability to put beads on the needle and keep all the colors separate for clean up later on.
