|Possibly the best comical example of women supporting each other, ever. |
After leaving a little pre-anniversary gathering at Private Edition prior to a month of 33rd anniversary events, my mind was on the women behind it and how much I've gained from them over time. Imagine the drive and insight to bring luxury beauty brands to Tennessee 3 decades ago. The courage not only to do this, but to build and expand to include global product lines, other retail concepts and online business is mind blowing. The devoted team of ladies (surprisingly small) only become more savvy with time.

I also connected with a creative, spunky and (self-labeled) 'no-filter' jewelry designer from the Northeast crafting accessories in Middle Tennessee. The line is unlike anything else on the market: Elegant yet casual pieces involving vintage crystals, leathers and metal elements are all unique. She's a tiny thing, but the creations have big personality. Meeting her and hearing about her passion for the craft was my good fortune. If you haven't met Sue Surdi or seen her work, get acquainted. The energy and beauty in both the person and the finished product is breathtaking.
