How to Use a Bead Board in the Creation and Maintenance of your Jewelry Project

Beading Boards are an essential tool in any jewelry making project. They help organize, store and plan your beading piece.

Grooves along the edges (and sometimes interior) allow for placement and organization of your jewelry design. There are also small compartments that are used to store beads. Be sure to store your clasps and other beading accessories within these compartments for future use.

Numbered references along the board are used to measure the length(s) of your piece in inches.

Once you're satisfied with your design, place bead stoppers at both ends (if using the stringing technique) to prevent beads from falling off.
