Swooning over this Art Nouveau Cuff by Angel Whisperer.  Set with Czech Glass, Lampwork by Jeff Plath, Jade and Swarovski Crystals.  This one sold immediately.

Come On Arm Move - Please!

I won't deny it.  I abuse my body.  I always have! 
 I have taken it for granted that things are always going to work the same for my lifetime.  I beat my body down as a young gymnast and I work until I am in pain and ignore all of my symptoms.

So this is frozen shoulder.  
It is debilitating, painful and frustrating.  It has gotten a little worse since these photos were taken and more painful.  Typical me wait till the last minute when it affects everything before I do something about it.

This is my second round of Frozen Shoulder.  My first was a result of an injury in Tae Kwon Do, another abuse to my body.  It took over 2 years to resolve itself.  I gave up on all therapies out of frustration and it eventually released. 

However this time is different.  This one affects my dominant arm!  The arm I make all my jewelry with, photo edit, market myself on the computer and do all of my everyday activities with.

So all that being said and my whining done.  
I finally have an appointment to see an Orthopedic Surgeon (my last resort) on August 15th.  I have exhausted all the homeopathic therapies and it is time to move on.

I will keep you all a breasted to my progress and hope you will continue to follow me if in fact I have a lengthy rehabilitation. 

For today - I make jewelry when I can - remain hopeful and inspired by my many jewelry making friends!!!!!
