I have a decent collection of beads. I started collecting about 7 years ago with Pandora. Pandora is the only bead game in town, although there is an Elfbeads Rep who lets us check out her wares sometimes. Lately the joy has been slipping a little because I just can’t get a handle on how to keep my pretties organized and safe and easy to use.
I like to change up my bracelets everyday depending on what I’m wearing or what’s going on or what my mood is and that requires me to be able to see what I have, access it and then play with the beads. I usually do this in the morning cuz why not add a bit of extra stress to the start of your day.
Beads falling, going missing, just mayhem.
And everything needs a good cleaning but why clean when the whole mess just stresses you out.
The pile on my dresser reminds me of the #ohmbeadmess that Jenny and Mike posted earlier this year
Their mess is my inspiration.
I need an intervention!
So I took everything out of my top 3 drawers and middle drawer and my acrylic sorting trays.
And bought more dowel from Home Depot. I’ve resorted by brand ( and put glass and silvers together) and have gotten rid of a pile of costume jewelry.
I need a couple more lengths of dowel for redbalifrog and pandora. The dowels are in the upper three drawers and the lower middle drawer has been reorganized for necklaces, x jewelry, etc..
I guess I will have to actually clean everything now 🤦🏻♀️
We will see how long this works.
