Sorting Beads

Dianne sent me this great tip and hopes it helps someone! :

I have found a great way of sorting a mixed bag of beads into the individual colours. I tip a few beads into a small bowl. To aid sorting, I use a small paint brush to "tease" beads of the same colour into the rim of the tilted bowl from where I can pick up several beads at one time by using a finger tip. Static electricity keeps the beads on the finger until rubbed off. It is easy to then transfer the beads on my fingertip and place them into a box with compartments for the various colours like a "daily doser" or a tackle box . It is possible to sort quite a lot of beads in a relatively short time.
