Safety and ergonomics
Your hands, eyes and upper body are your most important and most vulnerable tools. Jewelry making creates a situation where you use these tools in an extremely intense way.
Small movements are repeated many times and this repetitive use of the hands with the same positions and movement can cause injuries, pain and numbness. Incorrect or careless positioning or use of tools can cause you to lose the ability to work for weeks or months at a time to give them time to heal. A little care before and during your work period helps you keep your hands, eyes and upper body healthy.
Prepare to work
Gently move your hands for a few minutes before starting to work. Bend, bend, rotate, extend and stretch your hands. Wear eye protection when using power tools or torches or working with long wire pieces.
Posture and ergonomics
Good ergonomics when saturated will help your neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and fingers when working for a long time. Make sure your seat height is correct for the leg length. Use a footrest if needed. Support your back firmly and match your table height to your seat height.
Keep your hands and arms warm while you work so keep them relaxed. Place your lighting in a position so you can see your work without shadows or crane throats.
Do not rest the elbows or arm under the elbow joint on the table without a cushion. This can cause compression of nerves in that area and create numbness in the outer two fingers of the hand.
Try to schedule a rest period every hour for a few minutes. You can do hand exercises, eye exercises and neck, shoulder and back exercises to keep mobile and comfortable while you work.
Use the prayer hands exercise for your hands. Put your fingers together and gently press the palms together. Use your fingertip pointers to move each fingertip to the thumb one at a time. Stretch your fingers like a starfish that reaches as far as you can with each fingertip. Rotate your wrists very gently with your fists doubled. Stretch your hands back with your fingertips with the other hand. Bend your hand forward and use a hand to gently pull your thumb against your wrist. Do all these exercises carefully but often to help your hands.
Your eyes can get dry when you don't blink as often as you should, so blink slowly to get moisture in your eyes. Close your eyes slowly and while they are closed, look up, down and to each side. Because you work very close for the most part, change the focus of your eyes by doing the following: focus on your finger and slowly move your finger away. Bring your finger and focus on something above the room.
The intensive work on jewelry can be hard on your neck, shoulders and back. Exercise them regularly during rest periods. These exercises should be done while standing.
Exercise your shoulders to relieve tension and soreness. Use the shoulder blade touch. When you sit upright with your shoulders back and head upright, push the shoulder blades together and hold a five. Shoulder rolls are done by holding the arms and rolling the shoulders, first one and then the other, forward, then back as you move your arms naturally after the movement in the shoulders.
Neck rolls are done by placing one hand on the head to support the weight of the head and gently moving the head forward to the right, back and left. Support your head through all these movements.
The back can benefit if you lift your shoulders and bend your back for a count of three, select your back for a count of three and then straighten your back. Also, keep your arms out and rotate your hips.
Pressure points and massage
The tension in your hands can be relieved if you put your fingerprint in the base of the thumb ball. You can also apply pressure to the base of each finger. Massage of the lower arm and lower back can also help relieve tension
Splints and immobilization
Your doctor may recommend clefts or immobilization during certain periods of the day. Sleeping in a splint can also help. If you wear cleavage, use ice and use painkillers, you may be able to help your situation with rest and exercise while working, but consult your doctor or physiotherapist with these techniques.
