OK, how many of you have made something really nice, only to find
out it didn’t work, wasn’t practical, wasn’t designed well, etc? What
did you do about it? Make it into something else, or did you just
keep it around to remind yourself not to do THAT again?
I made a lovely clasp out of sterling and an amazonite cab, based on
an article from a jewelry magazine. One critical item was left out of
the description - though I should have deduced it from the photos -
the clasp has to be symmetrical in order to work. Not just
symmetrical, but the forces that act on the clasp must be in
alignment through the center of mass of the clasp.
I let my artistic brain push aside my engineering brain when I did
this one. I just kept thinking, "Wow, it’s going to be so pretty."
Yeah, but totally useless, unless it’s the clasp to a leather belt
or a handbag.
So, what should I do with it until I get into belt or handbag
Thanks for the advice,
