How I Use Instagram for My Business

When Instagram first burst on the scene, I must admit I was pretty much thinking "Ugh, ANOTHER social media platform to work on?!". As a small handmade jewelry designer, doing social media for my business is a must. There are the biggies like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, so why do I also add Instagram to my plate?

To me, Instagram is like a more visual Twitter. You can take the time to set up an image and craft your comment and then it is captured like a picture diary in your Instagram feed. Since Instagram was acquired by Facebook, they are upping their game adding Live streaming and "stories" (a la Snapchat).

The most frustrating thing about Instagram, much like Facebook, is that there are these milestones you feel like you have to accomplish to be a "good" poster. Nice consistent images (not too many food pictures unless you are a food blogger, or your pets, etc. if that isn't your focus), post at least once a day, write engaging, meaningful captions, get as many followers as you can, or else no one will see your images in their feed... it's very chicken-and-egg and mysterious as to how to get more folks to see my feed. I'd love to share links in my Instagram stories, for example, but it is restricted to "verified" and business accounts with 10k or more followers. I've been trying to get verified on Twitter for months (that's another story) but have no idea how to get verified on Instagram and 10k followers?! seems like an impossible goal.
 Follow me on Instagram!

Nevertheless, I must persist! I feel it is truly a wonderful outlet for fans and customers to have a little peek at the behind-the-scenes of the business. The good, the bad, the ugly. It is also a great way to see and learn about other artists, which is probably my favorite aspect of Instagram. I'll never have the perfectly staged images or whatnot, but that captures my business - I work solo and I'm multitasking and I make pieces to order and I focus my time on running the business rather than staging it. Maybe I'm a little boring? I can't fake the glamorous Insta-life that seems so unattainable.

Do you use Instagram? Got any tips for me? Check out my feed and follow me at Peggy Li Creations Instagram.

Rachel Lindsay Jewelry, The Bachelorette Beaded Necklaces

Another season of The Bachelorette is almost complete and is possibly the-most-dramatic-ever! I've really admired Rachel Lindsay and how she has carried herself this season, really cutting through the chaff (except for keeping that Whaboom guy, wtf?). Her style this season has been a little more figure-hugging and luxe than previous Bachelorettes, so I was so thrilled to see Rachel wearing a few of my Peggy Li Creations Basic Beaded Necklaces during her hometowns!

Far from basic, the Basic Beaded Necklaces come with your choice of number of beads and different lengths to mix and match how you want to match your style. Available in sterling silver or 14k gold-filled, these necklaces are super affordable as well.

She's wearing my single bead in 16" length and 5 bead in 18" length in these show promo pictures from ABC:
Rachel on her date with Peter.

Good luck on your journey to finding love, Rachel. Who do you think makes it past hometowns, Bryan, Eric, Dean or Peter?

Peggy Li Creations Calder Earrings in Accessories Magazine

It's always an honor to be recognized by fans or the jewelry industry, so it was amazing to see my Calder Earrings in the latest email blast from Accessories Magazine. The earrings were a part of the article "Whitney's Calder: Hypermobility Show Channels Jewelry's Latest Trend".  I recently visited the Calder exhibit at the newly revamped San Francisco MOMA and loved it. With my jewelry design, I'm always trying for a balance of delicacy and substance.

The Calder Earrings were also seen on actress Nina Dobrev as part of the season 7 promotional images for The Vampire Diaries as well as on actress Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak on Arrow. Check out the article and images below and be sure to visit my website Peggy Li Creations for more information and to shop the look!
