My two “trigger fingers”- swollen joints from long-term use of tile nippers- have been a problem for several years. But now, the problem has worked its way up my arm and into my elbow.
In addition to doing my e-cises, as prescribed by my Pain Free book, I now use what I call a “Nipper Buddy” that Bob made after work the other night. See those lovely red Rubi nippers on the table? They now have handles twenty inches long. Nipping tile or glass and cutting soft butter now require the same amount of effort. Is this cheating?
This morning, Bob made four more sets of them for our church mosaic studio. People will love ’em!
By the way, I have started a new blog about the making of our large church mosaic. You may sign up by e-mail (look in the blog sidebar) to follow all the action. The blog is called New Life From Shards.
