Pepper lives on in our hearts.

Our beloved rabbit Pepper died on August 8 at the age of 8. She was a huge part of our family, with us from the time my daughter was 8 to 16. I had created a miniature stuffed Pepper complete with a tiny couch made from the fabric of her sofa. I put a tiny bag of Pepper’s ashes inside the belly of the stuffed bunny. Yesterday, after cleaning out my studio (which was Pepper’s room for her last year) I decided to make a jewelry piece with her ashes for myself. I used a small length of plastic medical tubing, which I’d saved from my friend Allison’s oxygen tube after her double lung transplant 10 years ago. I added some beads, including a tiny hematite heart bead. The bunny charm was leftover from some pieces I bought to make fundraising jewelry for the Quebec Rabbit Rescue Association.
