Joy in the City: ROM Crystal Opening, June 2007

Robert Pearce had Joy create a hand-made First Nations jacket replica to wear to the opening of the Royal Ontario Museum’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal opening in June 2007.

The jacket was made of dear-skin leather and covered in a hand-beaded “flag” back-piece, which took a total 360 hours to create.

In thanks, Mr. Pearce hosted a party at the ROM’s (then) new C5 restaurant with Joy as the guest of honor (pictured above).
