“Low Tech” Bead Tray…

index card bead trayI’ve found for baking and laying out beads low tech works best. I was introduced to the folded file folder or index card bead baking tray by Victoria Hughes in 1989 and have continued to prefer this simple tool over some of the more elaborate devices available. I even have a tray made of poster board that holds ten necklaces at at time. The center and quarter points are marked with a Sharpie.

These simple re-usable bead trays are great in a classroom setting, as students can put their names on their trays of beads and multiple layers may be stacked in the oven for curing.

    Thanks for the post and the photo of the ‘low tech’ solution to beginner bead-stringing class with eight 6 to 9 year olds! It worked like a charm.
