I recently had the opportunity to use and review the Beam n Read® LED6m Hands-free craft light. ASF Lightware Solutions gave me an LED6m craft light and USB adapter to try out and review.

There are so many benefits and cool features to these LED lights that I don’t know where to begin!

Extremely versatile craft lights

The Beam n Read® craft lights come with 3 plastic fresnel lenses (flat) to magnify your work. The 4″ x 5″ plastic lens snaps easily into an adjustable clip to create a light with a magnifier. Choose from 2x, 4x or 6x magnification so you can see your detail work!

Beam n Read® is a hands-free light that has accessory magnifiers – it is not a lighted magnifier.

Light weight and hands free so you can see to bead or craft, at home or on the go

This hands-free craft light has an adjustable elastic strap to use around the neck. The unit is very light in weight (approx. 6.8 ounces) so you hardly know it’s there.

The LED light panel has three height adjustments so you can change the direction of the beam as needed. You can also switch between low (uses 3 lights) or high (uses all 6 lights).

Bead n Read can be set up as a mini table lamp

This can also be set up as a temporary mini table lamp for jewelry making and crafts. This is great to take with you to craft shows for minor repairs or while traveling on vacation.


Extremely portable and perfect for when you are on the go but don’t want to drag your whole studio with you.

Find beads on floor
Pick up beads that have dropped on the carpet and scattered all over the floor!

Have you ever spilled beads all over the carpet or floor? Of course you have, it happens to everyone!

I found this hands-free light very useful for searching for my spilled beads that scattered everywhere! Small beads bounce into the darkest corners of the room, but the wide beam of the LED6m craft light was extremely helpful to use while crawling around searching for them.

So many ways to use Bead n Read®

There are so many ways to use this craft light! I came up with a few examples of ways to use this and I know there are many more!
