Lara Stone Jewelry in The Black Keys Weight of Love Music Video

A few months ago, I received an exciting email from stylist Karen Langley -- she wanted an assortment of my Thin Gold Rings for a top secret music video shoot! All I knew was that it was for The Black Keys (whom I love), starring supermodel Lara Stone (gasp), and directed by Theo Wenner (top fashion photographer who comes from Rolling Stone royalty and is rumored to be Miley Cyrus' new man). WHAT?

Only a few days after sending out my package of handmade rings I received the items back, some missing due to the "vigorous shoot". Okay, no problem. Then, it became a waiting game... 

Finally, this week the music video for The Black Keys song "Weight of Love" from their Turn Blue album was released and its um, titillating content will either leave your head shaking in confusion or admiration.

Lara Stone plays a beautiful but demanding cult leader of some ephemeral nymphs living out in isolation. They craft, do calisthenics and do whatever Lara tells them to do. One acolyte in particular bothers Lara -- played by fellow supermodel Lily McMenamy. Their faceoff provided this great shot of my rings in the shoot!

The video is up for viewing, but be forewarned -- there is some topless action going on. Artful, of course!

Loved the opportunity and am proud to have been a part of the production! Full credits:

Nina Dobrev in Peggy Li Creations Earrings

Actress Nina Dobrev posted a sarcastic selfie from the set of The Vampire Diaries season 6 promo photoshoot recently, joking about tabloid rumors about who she is currently dating (which, according to the tabloids, is just about everyone).  Pictured here left to right are Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig, Joseph Morgan and Matt Davis.

Photo is adorable and also exciting for me, because in it Nina is wearing my Calder Geo Earrings! I love the edgy look on this gorgeous woman (you can check out her Instagram here). Can't wait for season 6 of The Vampire Diaries. Are Damon and Bonnie gone for good? Who are all the new characters coming to Mystic Falls? Will Elena go back to college? So many questions and only a few weeks to find out.

In the meantime, check out the many Peggy Li Creations jewelry pieces seen on TVD, worn by Elena, Katherine, Bonnie AND Caroline!

Wear Jewelry Like Olivia Pope

The world has been taken by the intrigue, glamour and downright bananas storylines of TV show Scandal. Created by the queen of dramatic television Shonda Rhimes, Scandal is about PR fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) who is having an affair with the President (Tony Goldwyn). That's the simplest way to describe it!  Along the way, the show has introduced catchphrases into the social media lexicon, including #gladiators #shutitdown #poped and #scandalfashion, which is led by the amazing Lyn Paolo. Lyn has created a stylish wardrobe for Olivia that re-imagines what a woman's working wardrobe should be. Olivia's clothes are her armor, her camouflage, her heart on her sleeve. She very literally wears the "white hat" in the show and into the workplace!  It also doesn't hurt that star Kerry Washington is a stunning beauty.

What I love about Scandal, from a Peggy Li Creations point of view, besides the enormous privilege of having my jewelry used on the show, is watching the influence the show has on how women are approaching jewelry for the workplace!  Olivia has a few go-to pieces:

1) An amazing watch (on the show, Movado)
2) Long layered necklace
3) Ring of sentimental value
4) Classic pearl or simple earrings

The many fashion looks of Olivia Pope - beautiful jacket, sharp accessory details.
Here are some Peggy Li Creations jewelry picks that I think are quintessentially Olivia -

post pearl earrings
Post Pearl Earrings, freshwater pearls and sterling silver.

A long necklace which you can wear but it doesn't distract from the overall outfit, only highlights it.

stacked gold ring
Deco Ring, a ring that looks handcrafted and personal.

Can't wait to see how Olivia's fashion continues to evolve and speak for her character in a new season of Scandal. And hopefully PLC jewelry will be there as well! See all the Peggy Li Jewelry looks seen on Scandal so far.

Jewelry on Witches of East End Season 2

rachel boston witches of east end
Season 2 of Witches of East End promised to be "darker" - here, Ingrid tells Dash he's a warlock, wearing my Small Tree of Life Necklace.
So glad that Witches of East End was renewed for a second season on Lifetime TV! In what promises to be a sexier, darker season, I was so pleased to send actress Rachel Boston a new iconic necklace for her character Ingrid Beauchamp.

Ingrid in season 2 is coming into her witch powers as well as dealing with what has come through the portal from Asgard. Not to mention life issues like trying to land a job at the East End library!  Last season, she wore my Dove Necklace (see all the other earrings and necklaces worn on Witches of East End Season 1 here)

Now that Ingrid is more comfortable with her family history and is exploring her supernatural powers, she will now be wearing a small Tree of Life necklace throughout the season. Rachel requested that a small pearl be added to the chain, which I put in the back. Love how the charm represents how grounded Ingrid is by her family and magic!

Also, now that Aunt Wendy (Madchen Amick) is on her last life, her green amulet necklace is now red! I've created a necklace inspired by Aunt Wendy and her new look with my Red Witchy Necklace -

I can't wait to see what the Beauchamps experience this season. Julia Ormond and Jenna Dewan Tatum round out the cast of lovely ladies on the show.

Jewelry seen on Andi Dorfman the Bachelorette

Another season of The Bachelorette kicked off with assistant district attorney Andi Dorfman looking for love on the hit reality TV show. I like Andi, I think she is no-nonsense and sincerely looking for someone to love. The Bachelorette guarantees a few things - drama, dramatic rose ceremonies, catch phrases (Andi's is "Sttttop!"), fabulous overseas locations, abs, tears and endless wardrobe changes! Andi has got style close to my own, so I was thrilled to discover she has chosen a few pieces from my Peggy Li Creations jewelry collection to wear on the show.

Andi wears my Pyrite Wrap Ring on a few date nights:

I absolutely loved Andi's basketball date outfit featuring Ash wedges, a Iro leather jacket and my Large Berber Pendant in gold plate:

Will Andi find love, maybe with Josh, or Nick? Can't wait to find out!  See all of the jewelry seen on The Bachelorette and other Peggy Li jewelry seen on TV.

Jewelry Seen on Scandal

The third season of Scandal has wrapped! All the crazy adventures of Olivia Pope and company have certainly been wild (murder! illegitimate children! mothers back from the dead!) but one thing is for sure -- the style on the show thanks to costume designer Lyn Paolo has never been better. Scandal stars lovely actresses Kerry Washington, Bellamy Young, Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes.  I've been so lucky to have had some of my handmade Peggy Li Creations jewelry seen on the show. Here are the spots!

Katie Lowes plays Quinn Perkins and here wears my Teds Earrings in gold plate (does she look like a secretary to you?)

Guest star Sally Pressman wears my Teardrop Om Necklace and my Milk Quartz Necklace while trying to out-scheme Olivia Pope and Associates.

Quinn also wore my Bronze Lion Pendant. She was just a budding assassin at this point of the show. The lion-ess about to emerge!

Can't wait for the new season of Scandal! Creator Shonda Rhimes is on a roll (next up - How to Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis!). Such an honor to be a part of Scandal and work with such talent.

See all Peggy Li Creations jewelry seen on TV.
