sore neck

I have very stiff joints in my neck and I've had them for years. They get better after quite a few trips to the physio but they always get worse again. And that's because I'm a jeweller. The way I sit, the way I work and the way I'm always too involved in what I'm doing to stop and S-T-R-E-T-C-H! I know I'm not the only jeweller to suffer from this. But I just wanted to complain because it hurts to roll my rolling mills at the moment because my stiff neck has upset my rotator cuff and my shoulders don't work properly.

And here's some new work

peridot reef brooch - the photo does not give a good indication of the luscious green of the peridots. You'll have to physically go to e.g.etal for a better look. And the anemone is from a biscuit tin with old reef illustrations.
