Having an invisible disability can create a lot of problems. This is especially true when it involves your hands like CMT does. I’ve lived with Charcot Marie Tooth Disorder for years. And I’ve learned a thing or two.
I’m all about making life easier. When I find a tip or trick, I share it on my site. I remember struggling to do basic everyday things. Things like getting dressed, wearing makeup – girly things!
For instance, I like to layer chokers with longer style necklaces and pendants. Instead of relying on someone to help me take my necklaces on and off, I buy my magnetic attachment clasps at the local craft store. When I explain that I have trouble with my hands, they are happy to put them on any necklaces I bring with me.
You can also buy ”magnet jewelry attachment clasps” on Amazon. These magnetic jewelry clasps can be easily connected to any necklace or bracelet that has a traditional claw and loop clasp. I have begun attaching them to all of my mom’s heirloom fine jewelry I inherited.
