I would like to get my Etsy shop back on line and am creating stuff to list in it, but once again I face the dilemma of facing parting with my work. After investing so much time and energy into a favorite piece, I find myself inventing excuses not to list stuff. The above necklace was a design challenge, since there was so much I wanted to do and try and it is always tough to get what I've got in my head to be something I can hold in my hand. After achieving as close as I'm going to get, I am telling myself I can't charge what it is worth to me, so I should keep it, knowing that I seldom wear stuff this dressy.
This bracelet is more comfortable to keep. I love the color combination and would wear this a lot, and I have the excuse that I've never made a wire wrapped clasp and I have to make sure it will hold up under repeated wear.
These excuses sound lame when they are written down, which is why I am doing it. I can always tone down the necklace for myself and test out the bracelet and make another if it is sturdy enough to sell.
Why am I writing this? I would like to hear how others overcome their separation anxiety. Please leave a comment and let me know.
