Style Inspiration - Jennifer Lawrence Diamond Spike Earrings

I did a double take when I saw this photo of the lovely actress Jennifer Lawrence at a Hunger Games: Catching Fire press event. Not only was her new, choppy haircut amazing, but she looked fresh and beautiful in simple makeup. Even better, her accessories, of course! Her earrings were edgy, sparkly, and stunning. After doing a little research, I found out these earrings were EF Collection and well over $1,000 in cost!

Luckily, you can get the same look for less with my Peggy Li Creations Diamond Spike Earrings. I have them in two finishes, oxidized sterling silver or a rose gold plate over sterling, featuring a row of rough cut diamonds. These spike earrings are dramatic and beautiful! Find them at peggyli.com.

My Diamond Spike earrings come on French leverback earwires for even extra security when you wear them. Lucy Hale, who plays Aria on TV show Pretty Little Liars also wore a similar look, see my blog post about her PeopleStylewatch earrings here.

Vampire Diaries Season 6 Promo Picture - Elena

Who's excited for The Vampire Diaries season 6? I certainly am. After the season 5 finale, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) were left in purgatory/dead and Elena had finally made her choice -- Damon, of course. Soon we'll get to see what Stefan, Matt, Caroline and the rest of the Mystic Falls crew will tackle this new season. Will Damon and Bonnie stay "dead"? How has the Travelers spell changed Mystic Falls? Who is in bed with Stefan? There are only a few things for certain; tears, biting, love and drama.

Every season each network TV show will release promotional photos of the cast members of each TV show. I was thrilled to see the photo released for Elena. She is wearing an amazing black gown and looking fabulous! And her earrings? Peggy Li Creations Geo Calder Earrings in 14k gold-filled.

Apple Watch Style

Unless you've been living on the moon, you may have heard that Apple has released their first new product in years, the Apple Watch (don't call it the iWatch!). Wearable technology is all the rage, with designers like Tory Burch and Rebecca Minkoff showing off wearable tech during New York Fashion Week - it's here, people, and the world couldn't wait to see the creation by design leader Apple would unveil.

The Apple Watch is sleek and modern, of course, with luxe options such as 18k gold available. Once again, Apple has created an aspirational design and it will be fascinating to see how traditional fashion responds.

Here I've taken one of my favorite NYFW looks from J. Crew and shown how I'd style it with the Apple Watch and some Peggy Li Creations jewelry! How will you wear your Apple Watch?

1// Oxidized Ombre Rings, $49 ea 2// Apple Watch "Ceramic Black" releases in 2015 3// Micro Initial Necklace, starts at $49 4// Wing Post Earrings, $39

What were your favorite looks from NYFW? Are you going to get an Apple Watch?

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:

Director: Theo Wenner
Director of Photography: Bobby Bukowski
Producer: Chris Kublan
Art Director: Anthony Asaro @ 11th Street Workshop
Editor: Marlo Nespeca @ Spot Welders
Colorist: Tom Poole @ Company 3
Production Company: Good Company

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!

UPDATE: See the finished picture of Elena Gilbert in this follow up post (and get ready, it's GORGEOUS)

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.
