My hands are covered in blisters. I got my groove back with my jewelry and have been working on it most of the day. I work mostly with wire and I make every part of my pieces including the chain and hooks. I made 3 necklaces and 4 pairs of earrings today. I was trying to think of something that would make it easier on my hands...I need to be able to feel the wire and it is pretty delicate work, so it can't be anything too thick. I thought about those fingerless gloves that cyclists wear. I think I'm going to check those out...hopefully they will keep me from getting blisters but allow me to do the fine work. I know that eventually my hands will get used to it again, so I could just ride it out. It is 5:30am and I just put everything away, but my mind is still racing.

I did stop making jewelry long enough to exercise. I got 35mins in. I even tried a walking video. Was only able to do about 5 min...but tomorrow maybe it will be 6...before long, hopefully the whole video. So, even my jewelry couldn't keep me from making my streak 57 days strong!!

I guess I should try to get some sleep. Hopefully I won't dream about twisting wire all night.

Good night Sparkly Peeps! emoticon

    If the cycling gloves don't work, there are softer fingerless gloves out there on various websites. I LOVE fingerless gloves, stylistically and functionally. :D
