British jeweler Annette Gabbedy who was born without fingers

British jeweler Annette Gabbedy was born fingerless but refused to let her lack of digits stop her from creating beautifully intricate jewelry.

In an interview with UK news outlet SWNS TV, she said she does not use any special tools to help her craft her precious gemstones and diamonds which are worth thousands of pounds, but adapts to normal jewelry-making equipment instead.

In fact, Gabbedy said she could not imagine carrying out her job with fingers as she feels that they “must get in the way”.
