Path of the Peacock
I saw my first peacock in the wild when I was a child. My parents had taken us to their friend’s house on the eastern shore of Maryland. I had only ever seen them in cages at zoos. I was completely amazed when I saw one strut casually across the driveway. Fabulous.
In memory of days searching the yard for peacock feathers, I created this cowl and mitt set.
