I love this bead storage container. I got carried away purchasing gem stones for embellishing my cards. We crafters always do, you know we need it JUST IN CASE. Well I didn't realize how much I had bought until it all arrived. OF course no place to store it. So I have been in the hunt for a suitable thing or system to hold them. This container is it, one container with 14 separate compartments that open individually. It is clear so you can see what is in each compartment and only have to open the exact compartment you want. Each compartment has brail on it so if you are blind you can recognize which compartment you are opening. I am not but that is an awesome feature. Each compartment snaps securely closed so no spills. Great overall storage container for small items each compartment is 1 1/4 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches long and 1 in deep.
