New Bridal Jewelry at Peggy Li Creations

July is a busy time of year at Peggy Li Creations -- just a few months away from the busy fall wedding season! Brides with weddings in August and September have been sending in requests for custom bridesmaid jewelry as well as for jewelry for themselves.

I've added new pictures to the Weddings Photos section of my site with pictures of brides and bridesmaids wearing their Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry!

Plus, check out new designs I've added to the Weddings section of

I often work with brides on custom work and will try my best to fit your budget! What's the best way to work on custom jewelry for your wedding?

  • At least two months out, contact the designer. This gives enough time to order supplies and special items that may be needed. If you expect many revisions on what you want, give even more time!
  • Let the designer know your budget per person, color scheme and other perferences (gold or silver? Pearls or no pearls?).
  • Let them know the date you need all the items to arrive! Again, pad in some time if you think your bridal party may need ajustments.

All the best,

Two Bay Area Bead Stores Closed!

I am sad to report that within a month of the closure of fave bead store Beadissimo in the Mission in San Francisco, I just got an email from The Bead Shop in Palo Alto announcing their closure after 26 years!

Both of these shops have provided me with unique supplies, custom requests and classes that helped me grow my skills.

The Bead Shop will continue online, and it appears like the classes from both shops will try and continue... I'll be staying tuned!

Retail shops in the Bay Area that you can continue to get your bead fix from:

General Bead
Baubles and Beads
The Beading Frenzy
Yone Beads

keep on beadin'!
