The Duchess Collection Sarah Ferguson
Sarah Ferguson is channeling her grief over the loss of a friend by creating a new piece of jewelry in her memory.
The sweet pin brooch is in tribute of a friend who died of cancer at just 59 years old in April, and with whom Sarah says she shared "adventures" that she will "treasure forever."
Fergie, as the Duchess of York is affectionately known, is not naming her friend but said: "Her positive energy and wicked sense of humour, even through her darkest times during her illness, will forever inspire me and all those that knew her. Together, we were always laughing, making the most of everything life threw at us and always living every day as if it were our last."
"I hope this brooch can be just one of the ways to honour her strength and determination. She always put other people first, was a great listener and worried more about others than she did herself. I designed this brooch so her spirit could continue to help me support others during such difficult times."

Fergie has also helped create a $47 (£35) "Brew for Crew" tea set (including tea bags of English breakfast and packets of cookies) which will benefit Sarah's Trust, her new charity vehicle.
The trust will then donate some of the proceeds to help health and other key frontline workers tackling the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The recipient for the Trust’s funds haven’t been chosen yet but her charity has already done some work with Under One Sky, that aids the homeless during pandemic.
