“Bead Spill!”


Description from Judiahaha: I know it's probably happened to most of you: I recently had a huge bead spill! So I painstakingly picked them all up, and promptly spilled them again! Arrgh! Now I can't tell the difference between the sterling and plated silvers. Is there a way to tell the difference? I have my beads organized; these were the beads in little piles on a bead board that I was working on. I flipped the board accidentally.

    Oh, yes! Be sure to check under all the furniture… and I don’t know how to sort sterling from plated. Sorry. Good luck!

    Twice!! 8O Yikes! So frustrating!!
    Wish I could help with sorting your metals, but I’m not sure either.

    I once had three containers of gemstones(17 compartments each container) fall on the floor and spill! Sending hundreds of beads rolling across the floor and then bouncing down the loft stairs into the living room below. It took hours to sort and I’m still finding stray beads now and then! I feel your pain!

    …Oh!! I meant to say I really like this pick too! It’s quite pretty with all it’s beautiful colors!

    I’m so glad I’m not alone. I feel I can’t use those beads that I’m not sure of being silver or plated on any pieces I sell or give away. What a mess :( And yikes, Mary, what a spill you had!
