Product Description

Looking for a light-weight, easy to use storage solution? These tubes are a great way to keep bead colors and shapes separate. Extremely portable, individual tubes provide the perfect way to tote just the beads you need, without having to carry all your storage boxes. Also ideal for storing crimp beads, clasps, head pins and other small findings. These tubes fit perfectly in the Bead Pavilion organizer. Tubes are approximately 3 inches long and 1/2 inch in diameter. Complete with secure stopper. Tubes hold approximately 10-12 grams of Delica seed beads. Other bead capacity is dependent on size of beads. Quantity: 10 Tubes and 10 Stoppers.

Customer Reviews

They do this job perfectly.
David M. Stage
These tubes are as good as the tubes often used for smaller amounts of seed beads.

I like these tubes, but the tops are a little hard to remove.

I have been beading for a couple of years, and I have always had trouble storing my beads in an ordered and efficient way. Since I discovered these storage tubes my troubles are over. I bought an eight drawer plastic storage unit like those used for storing sandpaperShop Fox D2927 8-Tray Sandpaper Storage Box, and placed three divisions in each drawer, so I can put about 60 tubes in each one. In that way I can use one drawer for seed beads, another for crystals, findings, etc. You can also use one drawer for your beading tools, and another for stringing materials or chains. These tubes can be found in different lengths, so you can store different amounts of beads in each, and you can store a large amount of beads in a small space.

I bought these tubes for Nerf birthday party invites. I wrote the birthday party invitation information directly on a standard Nerf dart and then placed the darts in these plastic canisters. They fit great and were a lot of fun.

Tubes are good quality and would also be suitable for storing beads or other small items...these tubes are rather small.

I was hoping these would work for my seed bead collection - but unfortunately they're far too small. The lids don't help this as they're inserted into the tube (meaning you can't fill these to the rim - you have to leave some solid space at the top for the lid). They're good quality tubes - and if you're looking to use these with 10/0 or 11/0 beads they might work - I'd say they can probably hold about 2 strands of 11/0 or 10/0 beads (maybe more) - but they're definitely not for larger collections or people trying to store larger amounts for use.

I've tried a bunch of alternatives, but the one I've found to work best so far is coin tubes. Not only are they super cheap (you can get them as low as $0.25/tube depending on the size & where you're looking) - but they're available in a variety of sizes & have screw-on lids. The closest size compatible to this would be for dimes - but the size I've found to work best for 6/0 beads is definitely the penny or the nickel sizes. The penny tube can hold about 1oz of 6/0 beads perfectly. The only problem I'm having with these is finding some way to then store the tubes (like a test tube rack or something)...but I'm sure i'll work something out. I'm also trying out some actual test tubes today (since those too are also very cheap & they have racks!).

Overall - while these are quality tubes they're just too small for me. I would've given them 5-stars regardless of this (since the dimensions are in the description - not their fault they're not big enough for me) - but the inset caps are a no-go for something marketed for bead storage use in my opinion.

I like these tubes, but the tops are a little hard to remove. I use my teeth to take them out. Great for storing beads.

great stuff at a fraction of the price they would cost at the local hobby shop or at a bead show.

It holds about 13 grams of seed beads or 10 grams of bugle beads, I store seeds for planting also, which is great for gardners. Very good caps they stay tight and not difficult to .
