The sorting of the 22,000 is complete!



Beads are all sorted. It took forever, but I have time during the day to get it all done. I love the color palettes that come out as colors are removed from the mix.

I tend to separate by taking out the darker colors first since they stand out the most.

This bucket of  22,000 beads took about 4 days to separate. I doubt many people do it this way, but the way I see it, you either separate as you build, or you do it beforehand. I like that you know how many of any particular color you have so you can plan projects accordingly.

    Is this also how you store them? I’ve been looking for a good solution to put the bag of 1,000 beads in. I also travel with them so was looking for something with a lid. Just found your site today, it’s awesome. Good work!

    I just purchased a 22,000 perler bead bucket today and I plan to sort thru them before using them as well. I was wondering if any one else has ever done it lol. I know it will be very tedious but like you, I want to know how much of each color I have if I do a larger project!

    I have a 22,000 bead jug and I’m starting to sort, but I’m wondering if you happen to know which colors these are? I want to buy some more colors, but I’m afraid the web/my screen (and my eyes) aren’t accurate and I’ll end up buying the same colors that I already have. I’ve been trying to find a list, to no avail.

    I was also wondering what the colors are in the 22k bucket. I am in the process of creating a couple of pictures using the perler snapshot program and would like to save some money if I can with the mixed beads. Any help is greatly appreciated.
