I did 8 international moves with all this stuff, too. I always tookthe sheet and wire as my carryon but my stones were mostly cabs, soI hid all the rest of the beads and things in several "packed byowner" boxes labeled "sheets/linens...closet" and packed stones andother items inside pillow cases but left in sets so that the boxappeared to be what it said. I also packed a lot in between myfabric "fabric/cloth...sewing room" always putting plenty of thereal thing on top. Packers never seemed interested in these boxes,nothing was stolen.

Bury them in clothing for the "movers" but be VERY careful abouttrying to get through customs, if they find them, you could loosethem, sit in jail then be thrown out of the country, especially ifyou are applying for residence.
