I put mine in colours,makes and COE together, other COE's are in separate storage so hopefully I don't get mixed up!

I vote for colour too Smiley I've marked tubes with CiM rods with green tape and Reichenbach with red. Or was it the other way around? Roll Eyes In any case I know the ones without tape are Effetre. Silver glass and single rods I've bought for sampling are kept separate so that I won't use them by accident.

OT: George, I sent you a PM the other day. Did you receive it?  Smiley

excellent idea, I think that is what I will do......mmmm maybe holographic tape for the expensive ones! Grin Grin Grin

thank you all, I love the help on this forum.  no matter how long you think things through and can't find an answer, someone comes along and says something so simple and obvious that you wonder why you ddidn't think of it Huh Huh Huh

Oh yes, I'm completely useless with silver glass so I keep it as far away from my torch as possible ... I think it's still on a shelf at Tuffnells!   Grin

Soft glass by colour (non labelled except for DH) and in a different place boro glass, and every rod of my boro is labelled, because you/I  can't tell from the rod what it is, apart from some really obvious ones

Mine are stored in tubes by make and then colour.   Smiley

But then I've got lots of other large glass jugs with just single rods of Lauscha in, or Bullseye, or Double Helix.  I'd like to have them all in tubes really, but never seem to get around to getting more and cutting them up.   Sad

By colour here as well, in plastic pipes, but with any single rods grouped in beer mugs (blues, greens, neutrals etc).

But however you do it, it seems you've always got to reorganise when you get a new colour ... unless you've got the luxury of enough space to leave gaps for the ones you haven't got!  Grin

Colour, me. Rainbow order, with black, clear, white and ivory nearest to my torch. DH, multi-colour, special stuff separate. Opaques also separate from transparents.

My tubes are not organised. I just remember where each colour sits so that if I ask DH to  get me say an orange while beading, I can tell him to go left or right and which row. New colours I just add to the top of the stack.

oh dear, going to buck the trend here; mine are completely random, no system whatsoever! 'Expensive' single rods are separate to all the glasscube stuff though, in a special mayonnaise jar  Grin

I am with lampworklover on this, just bung it on the shelves and get on with making the beads. Having said that I do keep different COE's seperate.

So do I but it's easy as most of my COE 96 is in flat strips cut from sheet. A bit difficult to get those confused with rods. My boro sits on a windowsill in a large jug while other COE's are in cut down wine bottles of different colours.
