Picking up small beads, like heishi and seed beads, can be difficult. Instead of using your bare fingers, use a rubber finger cot (or surgical gloves) with a small amount of rubber cement applied to the tip. You want to use only enough cement to make it tacky, allowing you to pickup those small items with ease. The cot will protect your fingers from the adhesive and the adhesive will save your beads from being lost.
