Distraction techniques

My doctor mentioned that neurological studies show that pain reduction occurs if you remain distracted. In other words, try not to think about it. Reading is difficult with migraines, so is working on the computer, but listening to books on tape and making things seems to be about perfect!

My latest creation, a peacock, black pearl, silver rose, glass, onyx and tiger eye necklace, kept me occupied for a while:

I am really enjoying learning more about jewelry making. I just bought a book on wire wrapping so I can progress further with those techniques. I am really interested in wire weaving and the finished product is very cool to look at. For the nonce I am just happy to feel useful and creative while I sit in my cave.
