I did find a lot of abandoned work in my studio cleanup last week. This week I was given an incentive to finish some of it. My daughter plays violin in a small community orchestra ( the creation of her violin teacher) and I was asked to put forward some of my work to sell there after the concert. Even knowing that I won't sell any/much of it was not a deterrent, so I used it as an excuse to face up to my pendant anxiety.
Pendants and I are not friends: I see others creating beautiful pendants, well proportioned, lovely to hold, wonderful colour and design, a joy to wear, design following form and so on, but mine never seem to work out. And that's really sad because if ever a material was made for pendants, it's polymer. Perhaps that is the problem - you can do too much! Too many choices...
I took my half finished work and dealt with it, and it does feel good. I'm still weighing up the results, but in general, I 'm pleased. There is definitely a fine line with pendants about too big and too small: definitely easy to swing over the line in either direction. But probably you just need to find the right person to wear a particular one. I like pendants to be the kind of jewelry you sling around your neck and wear all the time and come to love because you play with them and warm them in your hand and forget you have them on...I've lost a couple of my favourites that way when the string broke (because I wore them so much) and I didn't even notice.
And it's good to remember that there is no shame in taking a while to finish something. Finishing is the hardest part of almost any process.
