Orphaned Butter Dish
I like having a small tray in my loom work area for holding my project beads. Having a favorite little tray just makes my work area homey and they are quite functional.
My beading trays are small treasures that I find here and there. Some are new stock, some are vintage china or orphaned tea set pieces. What appeals to me is that these pieces are small (easy to include in a small work area), they are shallow, and they have a gradual curve at the edge that contains the beads easily but it’s also easy to slide a single bead out of the tray under my fingertip.
This butter dish base has all the qualities I love in a bead tray. It’s especially suited to sorting bc it’s heavy so it won’t slide around while you’re pushing or pulling beads around on it. It’s perfectly shallow too, which I love in a beading tray.
