Tips

Findings Organizer
All those little jewelry findings can be a pain to keep organized and to keep track of what you have. I have found inexpensive, small (5x7) photo albums to be perfect for storing chains, jumprings, crimp tubes, even bags of small beads. Just add labels to your pages, and drop your zip bagged findings into the photo pockets. Worried about dumping the contents out by accident? Just add little sticky velcro circle closures to the top openings.
