Optimize your time and effort with some tips on traveling and beading.
1. Get a Trusty Bead Tray
Perhaps the most hassle part when beading while traveling is bringing all the tools, supplies, and the jewelry components. What you need is a reliable bead tray that will help store and organize your beading essentials. A favorite among traveling beaders is the compact bead trays. These special trays are easy to carry because of its small size.
2. Bring Reading Material
When traveling on a plane or car, it can be difficult to perform your beading craftsmanship. So instead of just letting time pass, read a beading magazine!

Also, you can read about the trending designs of the season or year with the help of the magazine or even beading websites.
3. Be Aware of Travel Regulations
It’s impossible to do beadwork without the scissors and other cutting material. However, you need to be aware of travel regulations. To be on the safe side, just place the sharp objects in your check in baggage.
