Handmade Jewelry Seen on TV: Unique Necklaces, Gold Lotus Earrings

by on Thursday, December 8th, 2011

For those wondering if handmade jewelry ever has success with celebrities and the entertainment industry, fear not. Peggy Li is an example that it does. From San Fransisco, Li creates jewelry that has been seen on TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer (a personal favorite of mine), Private Practice, The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie.

I believe Peggy Li jewelry contains edgy twists on classic designs. They are all timeless and elegant with that bit of edge that makes them feel very “now.” …Now, let’s explore!

These Paradox Earrings made of blue chalcedony and coral are going to cheer up any outfit.

These are some great chevron earrings with a Long Drop!

These spiritual necklaces are called the Tiny Beaded Om Necklace and look really fun.

My Personal Peggy Li Jewelry Review

I received two items. They were shipped in a bubble package, but oddly without boxes. However, because I am always trying to be mindful of going green, I’m actually glad for this. Unless you are using the jewelry item as a gift, you don’t need an extra box that you’re just going to throw out. Moreover, the bubble packaging keeps everything super safe. If you are ordering something for a gift, you can probably e-mail Peggy to see if she has any gift wrapping options, or just re-use one of the million little white boxes you have shoved in your closet. (I hope to see more jewelry makers sending their wares in soft cloth pouches instead of just boxes.)

Gold Lotus Earrings

The first item is a basic, everyday kind of hoop that has been giving a bit of a boho twist. The Small Lotus Hoop Earrings were worn by Kadee Strickland on Private Practice. These are a small hoops that measure 1″ down so they’re not too imposing.

Handmade in Bali, they are available in gold vermeil or sterling silver. I had gone with the gold vermeil, however I feel like they’re so matte that the sterilng silver would have been a better choice. The gold earrings kind of fade away by themselves, unless you wear some other gold-tone jewelry. And that way, it allows the Small Lotus earrings to compliment a larger piece of jewelry.

The way they’ve been formed allows them to hang forward a bit, which is a very thoughtful allocation in this jewelry design. The closure is a bit tricky to master at first, and you do have to be gentle with them as you take them on and off.

Unique Necklaces – Carved Cross Necklace

This is a knockout piece. Why choose between exotic or romantic? Get them both in this Carved Cross Necklace from Peggy Li. I choose the 24″ chain, because I like wearing necklaces long. The white cross is actually bone and carved n both sides. Some 24k gold overlay outlines the modern cross shape, and a little drop of sparkling amethyst is added on the chain above. When paired with the small gold lotus earrings in the gold vermeil the combination was perfect. These are one of those unique necklaces you just fall in love with, you know?
