IGMA Artisan Pearl Jordan of Wee Willie Winkie's Dolls has passed away.
Pearl is best known for her recreation of the "All In the Family" set and other character dolls based on celebrities including Sammy Davis, Jr.
Pearl was a longtime member of the Peoria Area Miniature Society where I had the absolute pleasure of meeting her. She also made the best mac'n'cheese I had ever eaten.
Her website is still active for now, so I highly recommend taking a tour if you have never seen her awesome work. http://minipearls.homestead.com/artist.html
Godspeed, Pearl. Your laugh, creativity, and kindness will be missed.
