What's the point of making jewellery if you can't wear it as much as possible?
I am very proud of this necklace, and I don't want to give it away (a lot of the things I have made so far have been gifts for other people), but I haven't worn it much either, because I tend to dress pretty casually.
I learnt from this experience that it's really important to understand who and what you're making jewellery for (even if it's you!). Unless it's tailor-made for a particular special event, it's probably a good idea to ensure that an item is light and robust enough that you could wear it out and about without worrying about it.
