Jeweller preview
Annette Gabbedey, 48, who has no fingers, creates intricate rings, earrings and necklaces that sell for thousands of pounds at her boutique in Frome, Somerset, and insists: ‘I’m not disabled at all’. The Hatton Garden-trained jeweller works with diamonds, emeralds and other precious and semi-precious stones set in a variety of metals to create her covetable jewels, left and top right. She credits her family for always telling her to ‘get out there.
I love people who strive to succeed despite all odds. If she can do it, you also can! Peep pictures of her at work and he incredible designs when you continue!

Mrs Gabbedey trained in London's Hatton Garden before moving to Somerset 24 years ago
