Ode to the Art Institute pearl earrings

Part of our Bejeweled Stories series: to make this collection come alive, I wrote the short story, "Tiny Things," about mothers, daughters, birthdays, and memories. This jewel is based on the bronze lion sculpturesby Edward Kemeys on display outside of the Art Institute of Chicago.

An iconic fixture of my beloved Chicago, these lions have become a symbol of the Art Institute right on Michigan Avenue. I've got so many beautiful memories on those steps leading to the art... Have you been, darling?
