"Twilight," Obama, and Weight Loss Still Selling Despite Economic Woes

Life Medals Debuts Three New Pendants Inspired by the Hottest Retail Trends

APPLETON, WI--(Marketwire - March 17, 2009) - Life Medals, LLC, is adding to its line of meaningful jewelry with designs inspired by the super hot Twilight saga, the optimism of the new Obama administration, and Americans continued struggle with Weight Loss. These designs, along with Resilience/Fertility Hope and Motherhood, may be purchased at

"We all know how bad the economy is, but I began noticing certain things were still selling," Founder Patrice Behrend says. "The Twilight books are a phenomenal success and if you haven't heard of 'Twilight' and the love story of Edward and Bella, you will. I read the first book and was inspired to design 'Twilight Love' which features a heart surrounded by words that speak to Twilight fans looking for something beautiful but a bit more sophisticated than what is currently available. Women were interested in ordering the Twilight Love pendant while I was still sketching it!"

"Even though we have many challenges, there is an undercurrent of hope that is encouraging with the election of President Obama, regardless of your political affiliation. One look at a magazine rack will tell you anything with Obama family or administration is hot. I created the 'Yes We Can!' pendant featuring the symbol of a sunrise and inspiring words to help people believe that with a dream and hard work we, as individuals, and as a country will overcome our current difficulties."

Behrend adds, "Turn on your TV and you will see countless ads and even shows, like 'The Biggest Loser,' focused on the battle of the bulge. The concept of the 'Live Healthy' weight loss pendant is simple, but it works. Make healthier choices throughout the day and you will lose the extra weight and become fitter. A beautiful piece of jewelry featuring a compass star in the center guides you to make the lifestyle changes that result in a healthier you!"
