Farewell For Now
Gratitude prevails as I write this note following the celebration of twenty-one successful years of Hazen & Co. Gratitude for the gift of a family who supported a nine-year-old’s ambition to design and sell jewelry, a community who embraced this little girl’s business dreams, a loyal team who dreamt and hustled to build Hazen & Co. into the thrivingbusiness that it is today, and now the blessing of a precious growing family to nurture, love and lead. As with all gifts, we seek to steward each season of life well and to give our very best in all we do and to all with whom we interact.
With this new season, after much prayer, discussion, and reflection, I share that Hazen & Co. will be pausing its operations. My goal with Hazen has always been to create distinctive products for customers to love and enjoy by way of an encouraging and value-centered company. With your support, I believe we have been successful in that.
Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us that there is a season for everything. Over the past months, it has become apparent that the very best of me is being called to my family – to love and steward the precious little lives Alex and I have been gifted. The privilege of this calling is not lost on me, but rather I find myself overwhelmed by the gravity of the responsibility with which I have been entrusted. It has become evident that to fulfill my role at home in the way in which I am led will not leave enough of me to provide my Hazen family with all they deserve.
With that said, as we look to pause Hazen & Co.’s operations, starting today, we will be offering our entire inventory of treasures in an epic Warehouse Sale. I hope you will use this opportunity to add to your Hazen collection with pieces that are handmade by our talented Texas-based artisans. As always, many of our jewelry pieces are very limited in quantity, and once they are gone, they are gone for good!
In conclusion, thank you – our customers, our friends, our partners, our retailers, and our employees – for your loyal support of the Hazen & Co. brand for over 20 years and for encouraging us to be the best we can be for you. You have impacted our lives in so many ways for the better, and we are forever grateful. We hope your Hazen & Co. pieces will always remind you to cultivate joyful, inspired living!
Humbly and most gratefully,
