My friend Lynda makes amazing jewelry designs. Her Etsy shop is DivaDesignsInc. The basis of her items is Scottish tartan-based pieces. If you are immersed in watching or reading Outlander, as I am lately, you will be especially interested where you might not have been so inclined before falling in love with 18th century Scottish history.

Lynda also make specialty pieces, and she has a theme revolving around Women in History. I bought several of these Harriet Tubman pieces for some of my researcher friends.

It occurred to me that, if Lynda can create these, can’t she create a custom order for me? So I asked her, and I sent her 2 photos of my grandmother Ruth.

About age 16 perhaps, in 1910

Here’s what Lynda created for me…

These made me absolutely weepy with delight. I’m not an emotional sort, but there are things, several things that are unrelated except that I am in the center watching things unfold, happening beyond my control that have conspired to make me melancholy.

These brooches cheer me up. Thank you, Lynda!

Perhaps you need cheering up, too. Get in touch with Lynda. Click on her Etsy link at the top of the post.
