Need Ideas – a Ring for Painful Finger that Swells?
A friend of mine has severe fibromyalgia and swelling in her fingers and has had to have her rings (including her wedding ring!) cut off as a result.
She feels lost without a ring on her finger and has asked me to make something adjustable for her that she could wear regardless of how much swelling she’s experiencing.
I see that there are a lot of adjustable ring tutorials on this site, and I know that’s a great place to start.
My question is this – how do I make a ring that:
- can be worn regardless of how much swelling she’s experiencing;
- is sturdy enough for everyday wear; and
- would be gentle enough on her fingers to avoid aggravating any pain she’s experiencing?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
