She’s done it! Do you recognize this iconic piece? #Outlander #Repost @rocklovejewelry ・・・ “A bearskin cloak, to be exact, fastened at the neck with a silver-gilt brooch as large as the palm of my hand. It was made in the shape of two leaping stags, backs arched and heads meeting to form a circle. The locking pin was a short, tapered fan, the head of it shaped like the tail of a fleeing deer.” – Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Ch. 36 I couldn’t resist. Inspired by the prose of author Diana Gabaldon, I’ve always dreamed of translating the Fraser Stag Brooch. I hope you like it – I’ve never crafted a penannular brooch before and my heart is racing with pleasure that it works! #DianaGabaldon #Outlander #Fraser #Scottish #Scotland #Brooch #Stag #ScottishBrooch #PenannularBrooch #SCA #outlanderstarz #outlanderseries

    My random thoughts:

    I’ve missed your podcasts! 🙂 I’ve been listening to The Scot and the Sassenach “Dragonfly in Amber” seminar, which takes a much more macro look at the book (sections rather than chapter by chapter). I hadn’t realized how much I missed your in-depth analysis!!

    When I saw the Season Two “red dress” picture, I focused on Jamie’s face. What a look! Never noticed the red shoes until I saw Terry Dresbach’s blog about them. Shoes just aren’t my thing. 🙂

    The stag brooch is Beautiful.

    “Through a Glass Darkly” is from the “Love Chapter” in 1 Corinthians. “For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know, even as I am known.” Perhaps quoted because Claire’s knowledge of Frank’s origin is not fully known yet?

    I get completely grossed out/enraged by BJR’s waxing eloquent on his “love” for Jamie, and how he and Claire are the same. No, no, NO! He is a rapist and it is NOT the same.

    Looking forward to the next podcast! 🙂
