Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis Jewelry - Lila & Eve

I love movies and TV! Part of the fun of running my jewelry business is getting to work with amazing people in the film and TV business. For example, my journey when I got the call from brilliant costume designer Ane Crabtree ("Masters of Sex", "Westworld") who was working on a little indie film called Lila & Eve. Oh and by the way, the movie stars Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis.


I love love love Jennifer Lopez, I think she is one of the most beautiful and talented women on the planet! And Viola Davis? Killing it on the new Shonda Rhimes TV show "How to Get Away With Murder"? Amazing. I was so excited to be a part of this production!

Lila & Eve is a gritty drama about two moms who are grieving the loss of their kids to street violence. Eve (Jennifer Lopez) befriends Lila (Viola Davis) and together they start to take charge of finding out who murdered Lila's son. Their friendship is at the heart of this film, which was also produced by Viola Davis and her husband.

Movies are funny things - many get shot and then it takes months for them to see the light of day. Sometimes movies don't even make it to audiences! A small film like Lila & Eve is no different! It took only a few weeks to shoot and then it was a waiting game. Would the film hit theaters? It screened at the Sundance Film Festival, which was super exciting and then got picked up for release on demand and on iTunes, with a limited theater release in July 2015.

Watch Lila & Eve at a theater near you or on demand.

For Lila (Viola Davis), she wears a deep, dark, dimensional Drusy Dot Necklace. I think it's a great symbol of the depth of her grief and the many layers to the feelings she is grappling with.

Kaitlyn Bristowe Necklace from The Bachelorette

This season of The Bachelorette has been the most dramatic ever with controversial bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe. Kaitlyn stirred things up by letting in a late entry to win her heart (ahem Nick) and then by spending "fantasy suite" time with that guy before they got to the fantasy suite. To me, even more dramatic has been the number of guys who voluntarily left the show early on! It does beg the question of what happens when the main contestant has instant chemistry with only one or two of the guys? Many weeks of television to fill up, you know?

Luckily there is plenty of eye candy along the way, including Kaitlyn's cozy fashion. Favoring sweaters and simple jewelry, Kaitlyn wore a Peggy Li Creations necklace on her New York City Dates where she and "Cupcake" took to the Broadway Aladdin stage.

OK I'll admit, I was skeptical of Kaitlyn at the beginning, but this girl has grown on me. She's not very good at hiding her feelings and she seems to go with it. Gotta give props to that. For once, the drama is coming from the men, not the woman!

Jewelry on Melissa and Joey

ABC Family TV show Melissa and Joey is a quirky, funny family sitcom featuring two of TV's most likable stars, Melissa Joan Hart (of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch fame) and Joey Lawrence (Blossom!). Melissa plays Mel, a city councilwoman who ends up marrying her "manny", a goofy but handsome Joey. Together, they raise Mel's niece and nephew, Lennox and Ryder. Lennox is played by rising teen star Taylor Spreitler and Ryder is played by Nick Robinson.

Mel always alludes to a sassy past, and their fashion is never ordinary - bright basics for Mel and boho chic for Lennox. I love seeing my Peggy Li Creations jewelry on both of these ladies!  Check out the necklaces featured below and visit my website to shop the looks!
