A couple of weeks ago I got a little brace for my arthritic left hand. My hand has been bothering me for the last two years. It was diagnosed a year ago but that was as far as it went. I tried to find a store bought brace that worked. No success. Finally I went to a physiotherapy clinic that specializes in hands. Success! The therapist know just what I was up against. The problem with the base of the thumb is the most common. ( I am nothing special.) The therapist made me a brace on the spot and it has made an amazing difference. If you have a hand problem like mine, and I know that other craft people do, go to a hand specialist ASP. I looked and hand braces on the net and there are none like mine. You need an expert. That does not mean that I am not going to try to make a brace out of polymer clay. I will post when I get a round to that one.
Starting tomorrow I am suppose to be starting at Granville Island Market as a day vendor. The hours are long, 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. We will see if I survive to blog the next little while. The green pea? I just added it for interest.
