So I've made a handful of pretty time-consuming bracelets (25-30 strings) and I always intend on wearing them when I'm done but then I get too scared to because it's almost like a piece of artwork to me and I don't want it to get them dirty. I feel like the whole point is to make a beautiful bracelet to wear but then I just end up storing them away. Does anyone else feel this way? or does anyone have any advice for how to get over this?
