I see so many of you do BTW and I was thinking of making up my own called WTF?!? Or so as not to Offend, WTH(eck)?!? Or maybe simply WhatThe?!? or WhatNow?!? Or, or, or. Because we all have those projects that are started but then what? Or at least, I have those projects. What I wanted to do isn't working and nothing is coming to me. Or I just don't know how to get from where I am to where I want to be. Or I just lose my umph. Then there are those projects that are completed the way I saw them in my head and I think "Hmmm. I thought I would love it more" With these pieces, the question is: Sell? Cut? Will someone else love it? I tell myself over and over "You only wasted time and thread" as I cut it apart.
This is one of those pieces. The rock came out of the Susquehanna River when we were kayaking (back when the Water was warm enough and the Sun actually liked us). I did everything I had hoped to do. But I am just not sure. I really like it, but it didn't grab me the way I had hoped it would. Thoughts?

OMG, I almost spit my soda out! You totally crack me up. I would definitely be in on a WTF day. LOL, still laughing.

OK, with your many followers and my 22, maybe we can get a few others to join us. What day of the week or time of the month has a WTF feel to it? Or should it just be when we are having a WTF moment?

I forgot to mention, i bet your necklace looks beautiful on!!!!
Those feelings are so hard to deal with..Usually I just put the piece down and go back later and pick up and go UMMM>>> now what? Crazy isn't how we get "a feeling" and just know when it feels right and when it just doesn't work!
Let us know what you decide!

You know what's funny? It seems to ALWAYS be my WTH pieces that sell first. And my beautiful (to me!) pieces that languish.

I'm not sure what that say about a) me, or b) my jewelry.

That is funny ~ maybe it means that you made those pieces for you to wear and not others :-) They won't appreciate it like you do. Do you find it hard to part with some of the ones you find beautiful?
When the ones I hold dear sell, I resist a tremendous urge to interview people to be sure they will love it properly and wear it often. I get a little too attached.
