For years I have been keeping all my various beads in a handy little box separated in different sizes. I was always a bit worried that the box is going to fall and scatter it precious cargo into a million directions, so I put a few elastic bands around the cover and hoped for the best. As mentioned, this has served me well for the last few years.
I can bore you to death and tell you all the steps that had lead up to the moment of disaster, but to cut a long story short I will just show you the picture of the ultimate result.
Just a word of warning. This picture might cause the same effect as when you see another guy get a kick in the nuts.
My bead box will never be the same and from now on I will always wonder if that 2mm tungsten bead is really a 2mm tungsten bead.
The lessons learned.
- Gravity is alive and well.
- A 1.5mm bead is really small.
- I should look under my tying table more often. I discoverd lots of long lost material and tiny hooks.
- The maid doesn't do a proper job in cleaning up.
- My wife will not help me pick up beads.
