I just received some lovely complimentary Czech glass beads from Cyndi of Beading Arts, courtesy of The Best Beads. I got some Moonstone Bicones and Leaves in both black and red. I love primary and highly contrasting colours like this, but strangely, I had never worked in that combination before.
This is the inspiration design I have come up with to get me started. I am SO not a beader! I just wanted to have a little something at my worktable that would encourage me to come up with larger projects. I find once I "store" my components, I tend to forget about them. Out of sight, out of mind?

What do you use to help seed designs? How do you store your pretties so they are readily available when the Muse is in the mood?
