In 2010, I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and began to look into splinting as a way to reduce my hand pain. At that time, the available options were neither flattering to wear or attainable. An Artisan by nature, it only seemed natural to design my very own splints. The results brought immediate relief, and I began to design splints for others with EDS. Word spread, custom splint requests poured in, and more and more designs were added to encompass a wide range of conditions.
My splints are designed and implemented using one solid, durable piece of precious metal. This results in a superior frame that is unbreakable by design. Since there are no bonded, connected or soldered points on the splint, it cannot crack or split with wear and use. The rounded edging means a more comfortable fit, as there are no flat sides that can pinch into skin and soft tissues.
My experience has led me to work remotely with medical professionals at well known hospitals and military facilities, designing superior splinting options for their patients. Bling Splints are effective for a wide range of conditions and preferred by many Occupational and Physical Therapists due to the adjustable design. Many patients experience joint swelling throughout the day or night and require adjustability to suit that need.
Having a beautiful, functional ring to wear in place of a traditional orthotic device, greatly boosts self esteem and splint wear. Whether you require splinting for a certain task, or daily wear for common functions, you'll find Bling Splints to be comfortable and durable enough to hold up to anything.
Though chronic pain has greatly slowed me down, I still handcraft each and every splint from start to finish, nothing is prefabricated or mass produced, as I believe my customers only deserve the best. Thank you for your interest in my unique products. If you ever have any questions or need a custom splint made, please don't hesitate to reach out.
