Restore Default Bead Settings

Black and white lampwork glass beads
I think of my bead creativity as quite a technical thing.  My brain gets littered with bead thoughts scattered here and there, just as a computer gets clogged up with all sorts of data.  Eventually everything slows down and routine tasks become a struggle.  When that happens it's time for a defrag.  You give the computer time to sort through itself and to have a bit of a reorganise.

I do the same with my brain.

After I defragment my bead brain I always find that the settings have switched themselves back to default.  My default beads are black, white and clear - one of the most basic colour (or not) combinations but one of my favourites.

I thoroughly enjoyed making these and I hope you like them too!
