International Women's Day

Why does it take a day like today (designated International Women's Day) to acknowledge important women in our lives? I remember my mother saying "Every single day is Mothers Day," or something similar to this. So that's it! Cheers to all the women that make a difference....each and every day. Today I'm tipping my hat to the women and artisans responsible for making the Dunitz beaded jewelry line a reality. It's been 25 years since I first met Suri and Alicia. Suri (shown, right) is the first woman to teach Mayan women beading techniques. (I'm guessing without her, there would be almost no beaded jewelry coming out of Guatemala today.) Alicia (left on photo) has been working with us since day one. Truth be told, I should be acknowledging them out loud each and every day. With them, we make our Dunitz line "happen"! Thank you, girls :). -ND
