I list my items online for selling. I’m a rather obsessive perfectionist, so while something may be “finished”, I’m always inspecting it.
I recently finished a knotted gemstone necklace that meets my approval–except for the last knot “ending” I did. The perfectionist in me says restring and re-knot.
The realist in me says I don’t have the patience for a third (or is it forth?) attempt, and it will only sour my attitude towards knotting. The only way people would know it looks “off” is if they do a close inspection. Blasted Hypo-Cement….
So when do you say “enough is enough”? This is handmade jewelry, it’s not going to be machine perfect. That’s what makes it unique. Where do you draw the line?
