It's been said in other responses to your posts, but I want to echo
how beneficial it can be to finish a project once you start it.
Especially when I first started making jewelry I would get half way
through and something in my design would not work or I would even
melt something accidentally but I always made myself find a way to
compensate for the problem and finish the piece. I was amazed how
often I came up with something delightful that way. Also, a lot of
times a piece I don't particularly think will be great will be saved
in the finish and will surprise me. In other words, a little texture
here or there juxtaposed against an area of high polish, etc.
