Moonbeams & Twilight Dreams

I was lucky enough to catch a spot in Etsy's Treasury last weekend (on my birthday-eve, no less) and created this beautiful compilation filled with some of my favorite colors. For those who are wondering 'what's a Treasury'?~ it's a collection of products you like on Etsy that are based on a theme, a color, whatever you like. My Treasury was called Moonbeams and Twilight Dreams. 

She never made it to the front page, and since they expire within 2 to 3 days of their creation, I decided to save a snapshot to share with you here as it was just too pretty to fade away. I hope you enjoy it!


Hold On :: A Pueblo Indian Prayer

Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe,
even if it's a tree that stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do,
even if it's a long way from here.

Hold on to your life,
even if it's easier to let go.

Hold on to my hand,
even if I've gone away from you.


2009 ~ Time for a New Thing

Out with the old... In with the new! I'm so excited to see 2009 ~ feeling very hopeful for progressive changes in my life. I'm closing my store online that I've been operating for the past 10 years and liquidating my inventory so that I can start a brand, new adventure. Sometimes we get bogged down in something that no longer suits us - like clothes that no longer fit that we keep hanging in our closets, and this is how I see my business.

I've always loved to make things and jewelry is at the top of my creative list. I adore charm bracelets as they come in so many interesting forms. Charms can be made of silver, gold, resin, old game pieces, beads, photos... the list goes on. Charms are a fashion statement that never goes out of style.

I started my business in 1999 fueled by a passion for those sweet little charms. I loved making theme bracelets for Faith, Travel, Babies, etc. But in just a short period of time, it seems everyone was making charm bracelets and I wanted to stand out in the crowd and do something more unique.

I also began making baby and bridal jewelry during this time. When one of my suppliers was unable to fill an order for pearl earrings, I began making my own, and fell absolutely in love with pearls! I've always loved pearls ~ used to wear them with jeans, and people complimented me on wearing them in such a creative and 'casual' way. Soon, I was making bracelets and necklaces and found myself completely obsessed with beads, both gemstone and pearl, and now I find myself moving in an entirely different direction than where I began in 1999. So, it's time to move on to the next phase in my life ~ and Legacy 925 has to go.

I may still create charm bracelets, but possibly with a little more pizzazz... and lots of dazzling pearls and gemstones! I'll be posting my new designs on Etsy, as well as my old charm inventory. 

So, check in often ~ I'll be posting updates here whenever possible and sharing ideas on this new path that I've found.

Happy New Year, and Welcome 2009 ~ a year of endless possibilities! This could be the year to see your dreams come true. I hope to see some of mine blossom this year. ;>)
