jewelry hack for people with CMT, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and other neuromuscular disorders and disabilities

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.

If you’re needing more clever disability hacks, check out “Stick it to Pick it Up” and “How to Get a Grip When You Literally Can’t”.  Embrace your life.  Live fully.  Adapt.  Be well.
