INSPIRATION

You can do whatever you pour your passion into, fingers or not. Such an inspiration. 

 



Annette Gabbedey - Jeweller with no fingers from David Hedges on Vimeo.

A talented jeweller has found her own way to make miniature masterpieces worth thousands of pounds -- despite being born with no FINGERS. Annette Gabbedey, 48, spends months creating delicate rings and bracelets, glittering with precious diamonds and opals in her workshop. But the expert goldsmith does not have any special tools to help her work without digits - she simply adapts conventional crafting devices to create dazzling ornaments. Determined Annette - who insists she is not disabled - even says she could not imagine doing her job with fingers because they "must get in the way".
