(Scroll down for video) While many people saw her as a disabled person, Annette Gabbedey proved them wrong.

Gabbedey was born without fingers, yet she is able to work with delicate items to create magnificent pieces of jewelry.

Gabbedey, 48, has her own workshop and jewelry store in Frome, Somerset, England.

She does not have special tools to help her work without her fingers, she simply adapted to using the conventional tools as she creates dazzling works of art.

Gabbedey said that she does not mind when people ask questions about her being a goldsmith without fingers. People cannot comprehend how it is that she can create interactive jewelry without fingers.

She explains that she was born without fingers so she does not know any other way.

On the contrary, she jokes that she could not imagine doing the job with fingers because it would just get in the way.
