Sorting and Displaying
Here's a cute idea for helping when sorting beads into sets - or for displaying at shows. The problem with spacers is that they lay on their sides, and don't display well. You can put them on rods or mandrels - but they can be a hassle to take off and inevitably - you'll need one from the middle.
These are trays I got from - where else? - the dollar store. They are ice cube trays - for making the skinny ice cubes that you can slide through the neck of a water bottle to chill your bottled water.
They are a reasonable size for holding spacers, on their sides - without needing a rod through the middle. The white plastic shows them off well. Display them flat or on a slight angle.
And it sort of looks like an abacus. Not that you may necessarily consider that a plus - but there you go. ;-)
