I often have a variety of left over beads in small quantities.
Pretty beads...interesting beads.
I find that having a small bin or in my case a small drawer right next to my work table is the perfect place to collect all of those treasures.
I love rummaging through my loose bead drawer when I am I need of that one odd focal bead.
They are all sparkly and colorful!
It is a great place to collect beads for smaller projects like earring too.
At one point I tried to separate them into size categories but that was too much work.
Now I just toss them all together and when I need something small I know to dig down to the bottom for sunken treasures!
