It's been a long time since I have created any new jewelry designs. In March I was diagnosed with osteochondritis dissecans. The bone in my left knee died, and I had surgery to restructure my leg. That includes breaking the femur to realign the leg. It's a lot to deal with.
I'm also going to write about my outfit choices. Self care is so important for recovery, and feeling good is at the top of my list. I style comfortable outfits that reflect my magical taste without sacrificing comfort for physical therapy and resting time. My pain is still very intense, and I'm working to bend my leg more and more. I just got to 90 degrees this week. Hopefully I will start walking this summer.
My first official outfit post is called Dark Light Daydream. It feels appropriate since I use light to fight the negative emotions that come with recovery. This outfit is from 2 weeks ago. I couldn't write posts until now, so we've got only a few looks to catch up on. I don't have the energy to do a photo shoot every day. Thanks to my patient husband, who humors me by taking these photos.
I am wearing an azurite malachite necklace from The Enchanted Rock Garden in Richfield, Mn. Azurite and malachite have amazing healing powers and high copper content. The two combined together look like a faraway view of the earth. This necklace deserves it's own blog post, as I can't go a day without wearing it. I love the magical energy.
