A couple of yrs ago, I was drilling into a piece of steel, used too a great deal tension, and the drill little bit out of the blue broke/ skipped into my finger. The little puncture on my finger began to bleed, and I inspected the drill little bit to come across, certainly, it had broken midway up the bit and lodged in my “moneymakers” (as my lover phone calls my fingers.) I almost fainted in the vehicle on the way to the hospital—I can not stand the sight of my have blood.

I was absolutely sure the drill little bit was lodged deeply, and surgery would be necessary, together with stitches, probably a forged, and time out of function. Then the X-ray arrived again clear. There appeared to be nothing in the wound. What? The drill little bit should have flown into the abyss of my studio and the blunt close nicked me just plenty of to attract some blood and give me a scare. The medical doctor stated it would be just great with a great cleaning and a bandage. 

My nerves and creativity had run away with me. My partner shook his head and tried using not to chortle. I got back in the car and been given a monthly bill for $1,500 for my area scratch. Talk about a fright. But additional to my ego than my finger. —Chelsea Stone, Owner of Eye Candy Jewelry
