A bead board is a great time saver for designing a strung necklace or bracelet. It enables you can see exactly how your beads look together without taking the time to string them. By lining up your beads in the labeled grooves of the board you can plan the exact length of your finished piece and figure out how many beads you’ll need to complete it. These boards also have compartments to keep your beads contained and close at hand while you work. It’s super easy to move beads around the board, from groove to compartment and back, as you try out new combinations!
