I had mentioned in a previous post that a last minute repair was made to Teddy's right wrist. The vintage leather lining had split when I turned the arm right-side-out. I was running low on time so I decided to repair teddy's wrist and cover the "surgery" with pearls.
Well . . . it turns out that the pearls were even more of a personal touch. The women in Marian's family each wore jewelry (received from Marian on previous holidays) on Christmas Day. This pearl bracelet was one of the last Christmas gifts received and was a very close match to the bracelet on Ms. teddy bear.
