I made this piece in honor and memory of my dear Aunt Pearl, who died completely unexpectedly on July 24, 2014 at age 75. She was vibrant, kind, smart, fun, and more. I miss her dearly. Making this piece helped with my grief; I gave it to my Uncle Larry, who I adore -- always have and always will. Finished December 2014. I made a doll in her honor and memory as well.
