“Grandma Glad” is a commemorative portrait of the client’s late grandmother, Gladys. Like many of her generation (and current generations for that matter!) Gladys saved everything. This portrait contains some of her extensive collection of broken jewelry, single earrings, brooches and pearl necklaces with broken clasps. I was given a box with the many bits and pieces to include in her portrait.
