Hand injury changes things

I have been having serious pain and weakness issues in my dominant hand that have dramatically impacted how fast and for how long I can work each day. This especially applies to carving stone, which is what caused these issues.

I am so terribly sorry for being slow right now. I know many of you are waiting patiently, and I am forever grateful. I did a lot of catching up over the last several weeks, but now I've been slowed down bigtime. Not being able to accomplish what I should in a day has been so frustrating and anxiety inducing. I hope to know soon whether it is arthritis, carpal tunnel, or something else. In the mean time I am doing what I can to get jewelry progressed each day while no new jewelry orders are coming in.
