Reliquary: Matilda's Pearls

This piece was created for a show entitled "Memory" which was held this past spring at the Riverside Gallery in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
It recalls the weekends that my sister and I would spend at my Aunt Mat's house playing dress up with her gowns, high heels, hats and jewelry. She allowed the two of us to "borrow" just about anything in her closet except her genuine pearls. I remember clearly the birthday--having achieved "womanhood"--that she gave me those very same pearls as a gift for my birthday.
