I am inspired!

Is there a type of bead or shape that inspires you?  I have found as of late that one of my favorites in artbead designs is curves and circles.  More specifically ammonites. 

There is something primitave and calming about them for me.  Here are some of my favorites that I worked with.

And here is what I would love to work with!

    The ammonite form is lovely and yet also has a bit of a primitive look and feel – well it is based on a fossil so guess that would explain it. 😀
    I am still in love with your beautiful, ruffled seed beaded necklace straps – can't wait for you to research it and publish the pattern or tutorial.

    I love ammonites too and I loved working with your connector! I haven't really got a favourite shape, but I love anything to do with nature!
