HSN Jewelry Designer Carol Brodie Pens ‘Frequent Flier’ Column In New York Times

Carol Brodie, Designer and New York Times Writer

HSN jewelry designer Carol Brodie got a nice plug in Tuesday’s New York Times, in its “Frequent Flier” column in the business section.

The headline reads “Using Her Wares to Ease the Irritations of Travel,” and it’s Brodie’s story as told to a New York Times reporter.

Brodie, who does a fine jewelry line called “Rarities” for HSN, talks about her frequent trips to Tampa, Fla., to do her HSN shows.

The attractive blonde, who used to work for high-end jewelry house Harry Winston, in The Times talks about having to lug around heavy bags filled with her jewelry.

Brodie said she sometimes gives away her jewelry pieces to people she meets while she’s traveling, and then related an anecdote about one woman who stuck in her mind.

During a flight, Brodie said she took out some of her jewelry samples. Brodie was sitting next to a woman, who was drinking, who was with her granddaughter.

You can read The Times for all the details, but the grandmother started weeping, and literally told a sob story that Brodie thought was legit.

Bottom is Brodie's Butterfly Bracelet

In the column Brodie said that she dug in her purse and found a bracelet, “with a butterfly shape design,” and gave it to her seatmate. Our guess is that it was a dainty piece from HSN.

Brodie also unabashedly says that she wears her own Rarities jewelry “to show off my brand.”
