Oh oh oh “Why hasn’t this been done before?!” You may ask. I think I have a feeling why; it’s because we were waiting for Pearl to help us make Vermeer’s painting come to life.
There is so much to say about Pearl, but just like her beautiful tutorial, less is more. She truly and deeply believes in the importance of hair covering. She is a bat melech, a woman that knows that she is the daughter of a force that is infinitely beautiful. She has taken responsibility for that beauty and how she shares it with the world around her. She is not only beautiful on the outside, but has a neshama (soul) to match. Her journey towards being the Torah observant Jewish woman that she is today was not easy, but she speaks about it with clarity and joy. I have only spoken to her briefly, and already, I can’t wait to hear more.
To make this tutorial, she did a lot of research. She not only shows us how to do it on herself, but on a friend as well. May this tutorial bring you as much happiness as it has brought me!
And of course, we must give kavod to Wrapunzelista Extraordinaire Heather for this tutorial that she did of the Girl with a Pearl Earring wrap last year!
