Talented British jeweler Annette Gabbedy was born without fingers, but that hasn’t stopped her from creating incredibly detailed and stunning pieces of jewelry worth many thousands of pounds. In this video interview with SWNS TV, Annette explains that she really doesn’t consider fingers necessary for what she does.
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”.
