Annette Gabbedey - Jeweler With No Fingers
A talented jeweler has found her own way to make miniature masterpieces worth thousands of pounds despite being born with no fingers. Annette Gabbedey, 48, spends months in her workshop creating delicate rings and bracelets, glittering with precious diamonds and opals. 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."
