HSM Glass Beads Boxes

hsm logoAs my collection has grown, my storage needs have shifted and I find myself ever on the lookout for the perfect accessory to keep my jewelry organized (my husband says you all would be aghast at how disorganized my collection is, lol). As you can tell, I do quite a bit of photography with the charms, and I mix around my Trollbeads, *redbalifrog*, Ohm Beads, and Novobeads quite a bit and it makes storing them on bracelets unpractical as I have to take each bead off, then remember how it was arranged, and put it all together again.

I got sick of having my charms all strewn about and started to keep an eye out for a better way to manage my beads. To this end, I recently discovered an amazing glass artist/craftsman, Jasmine Mour who creates these fantastic curio boxes just for charms, bracelets and other jewelry. I was impressed at the simplicity of the design and its functionality; I purchased a 3-tier wood box which includes a top layer with glass opening, another box for more beads, and the last one for bracelets. The metal mandrels hold the beads and displays them neatly. Jasmine can make any number of compartments with these boxes and they’re extremely well done.

I’m so glad my little babies have a new home now and I can keep some semblance of order in my office which will keep my husband will be happy! 😀 For pricing, please contact Jasmine on her Facebook group: HSM Glass Beads boxes and her Art Fire store. She is great at communicating and ships quickly from North Carolina, USA.

      You deserve it, Jasmine! Keep up the awesome work :).

      To all, if you do not feel comfortable with my facebook page, you can see my items in my etsy cheetaah store, here is the link for the boxes/trays, thank you. xx

    That’s so exciting Leann, to share this with us! I’ve been complaining it seems like forever for something to store my huge Pandora collection and now my recent obsession with Ohm! I wanted a jewelry box that was attractive to set out on my vanity as well. I wonder if some of the drawers can be done for bracelets that are completely finished with charms, ya know just a place to store them long way instead of in a circle? Does that make sense what I just said?? lol 😉

    I have the Stackers jewelry boxes, but I’ve out grown that thing a long time ago. 🙂 It works better than nothing but I’m so glad to see this little gem of a glass bead box! Which of course can still hold your silver charms as well too, right?

    • Jasmine

      Hi Ashley, Please join my group and yes I can do that inside each tray, as you can see in the picture. Add me so that we can talk about it, thanks

  • Angela

    Wonderful, finally someone who understands. But Leann , how can non Facebook users get info about ordering and prices?

    • rainey

      Good question! I don’t use FB either and I wasn’t able to get prices and see options.

      • Michelle

        I am wondering the same thing also. This is a must have and I am not a FB user.

        Thanks!

      Hi Angela, yes, Jasmine also has an Etsy store but she hasn’t listed the boxes there. I’m sure she can though, the shop is called Avrin. 🙂

    • Jasmine

      Hi Angela, Michelle and rainey, please join my group, all sizes, prices are marked, add me so that we can talk about it. thank you.

  • Angela

    Plus are there two different types/styles natural wood and black? I like the Black amazing to see that one filled with what I believe to be your charms.. Sadly LOL by end of 2013 me thinks you will need another tray <3

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Haha! I was surprised at how quickly the box filled up, I think I may need another tray soon too :O. She has many options and can customize the interior color as well. 🙂

      • Jasmine

        Leannm loll think you need the 5 drawer one, believe me you will be VERY happy with it. Let me know if you need anything else. xoxoox

    • Jasmine

      Yes Angela I have natural wood and black one, if anyone wants I can list it for you in my store to buy it, but the store is not working for me for the time being… sorry about it, but I like to keep you happy, join my page and we talk, all you have to do pick the item you like (price/picture/info is there) then you pay with paypal, very easy. Again have questions please join and ask, thank you very much. xxx

    Those are really lovely boxes.

    I use TB retail trays that I’ve modified to store bracelets as well as beads. I like the look of a long rod of beads but for reaching in a grabbing a specific bead without moving a ton of other things, the little TB cubbies are great.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      This is fantastic!! You are so crafty, Rainey. Great job :D.

      • rainey

        Thanks but it wasn’t in any way complicated and my point was that if you can find a store that will share trays anyone could make their own with very available materials, tools and a little glue.

        The instructions are there with each pic in the slideshow if anyone wants to give it a whirl.

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Thanks for the tutorial! I don’t have any large TB retailers in my area, otherwise I would definitely ask for those trays :).

  • Elyse

    Fantastic review/presentation! Are these anti-tarnish in anyway? If not you can buy a roll of anti-tarnish cloth (a yards worth) on amazon to cut and place on bottom. Love the look but if you are in any hurry and want to get to specific charms the rods may not be the best but so great as a display piece and see what you have all in one place. I like how you grouped by color (obviously a green lover 😉 ). Another great item to think about!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Thanks, Elyse. They are not anti-tarnish, but yes you can put anti tarnish lining or silica packets to help slow the tarnishing process. It’s easier to get them off the rods than the bracelets, plus I don’t have to remember where everything goes, it’s arranged by color ^^.

    • Jasmine

      Hi Elyse, yes some people prepare their rods for their next bracelet of what to wear that day… and like Leann said it is very easy to work/arrange/keep them on rods than on the bracelets, no it is not anti tarnish, you can buy it from Amazon and add it on the button or cover on top of it, Have any questions please ask, thank you. xx

  • Angela

    Leann,
    Finally had the time to examine your beads what an awesome collection , I am impressed , like the color coordination. Love that Green Turtle. Have a deeper green on but would love one in that limey green. Are you storing RBF with Troll or have you separated them?
    I have been storing mine like rainey on knitting needles. in a fancy box with anti tarnish fabric, but always wanted something I could display my pretties in. Like and am going to use rainy’s idea.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Thank you! I didn’t realize how many beads I had until I was organizing them, lol. I need another tray for my redbalifrogs :/. Haha.

    🙂 I can barely afford the two bracelets I have ammassed in these past 6 years and I’m in awe… And I thought the medium Pandora brown box is huge!

    I’m wondering, what about someone that has 1 and 3/4 of a bracelet and about 10 spare charms? Would the Valentine Pandora spinning box would be enough? What about Stackers travel box (the one that comes with folding and has both sides…)

    I’m not envious, I have exactly what I use and love it!
