Designing Women

Last week I was lucky enough to be reminded of this in very different ways….

I 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.
These vintage crystal earrings by Sue Surdi Designs outshine everything else on my dressing table. Browse and purchase the collection online, or selected retailers in Nashville.
