Yeah! Wire working can be hazardous to your fingers. Look at what it does to my finger tips. Looks scary right? This is the result of working on a number of rings (can't tell how many, but a lot). My skin is peeling and there is a painful crack on my thumb. The bottom pix shows the pointing finger with the hardened tip as a result of repeated pressing/holding of the wires in place.
Not that I am complaining but just want to share with readers that the handcrafted pieces don't come easy (sometimes!). That aside, it will not slow me down from twisting wires :D
I am addicted, so I don't feel the pain :P.
I wonder what is next?
I wonder if other wire workers get this type of finger tips as well?
