How can I prevent my gemstone beads from sliding around while I am working?

Working with Loose Gemstone Beads

Working with loose gemstone beads can be tricky at times. A great beader's trick is to use a piece of felt (available for purchase in your local craft stores usually for about 10 cents a square) and lay your loose gem stone beads on the felt. When you are working, the felt will prevent the loose gemstone beads from sliding across your worktable.
