Handmade Jewelry Item of the Day: Square Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are one of the most classic, versatile jewelry items you can own! I handmake them in many sizes and many shapes, including this new Delicate Square Hoop earring version. When worn, they hang in a diamond shape from the ear! So cool! They come in sterling silver, gold-fill or rose gold-fill. 14k gold hoop versions available with a special order. See these and other handmade designer jewelry at peggyli.com.

Handmade Jewelry Item of the Day: Silver Constellation Necklace

I'm always looking for a light and easy necklace to wear that I can dress up or down. When I spotted this sterling silver bead chain with little daisy clusters, I knew I had a winner.

Made in a long 36" length with sterling silver tulip clasps, you can wear this beauty long or doubled. See the Silver Constellation Necklace and other handmade jewelry at Peggy Li Creations.


FAQ: Choosing a Handmade Jewelry Gift

I often have customers who are shopping for a handmade jewelry for friends or family and need some help choosing an item. While I think it's tough to by jewelry for someone else, (especially when you have so many choices at Peggy Li Creations!) here are some things to think about when shopping for a handcrafted jewelry gift:

1) Do they wear more gold or silver?
Sometimes people have a strong preference of tone or a piece of jewelry that they always wear that they match to (a watch, or ring). If they prefer gold, do they need a solid gold (14k) due to metal allergies?

2) Earrings vs. Necklace.
Do they tend to wear more earrings or more necklaces, or do they prefer matching sets?

3) Simple or elaborate? Do they tend to wear more simple pieces or something more daring/fancy?

4) Classic or funky? I have a lot of funky and classic styles, from charm necklaces to classic pearl necklaces. I really aim for effortless style, so I think all of my jewelry is able to be dressed up or dressed down with any wardrobe -- you really can't go wrong.

5) Would they like a personalized piece? There are a few options for personalized jewelry at handmade jewelry by Peggy Li, including an ID bracelet, Initial Necklace and Stamped Initial Necklaces. It goes that extra step to show that you are thinking about that special someone.

Hopefully you'll find these shopping tips useful when looking for that perfect handmade jewelry gift.


Eco-Friendly Packaging at Peggy Li Creations Handmade Jewelry

I've always been amazed at the amount of waste my small business generates -- but Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry strives to be as green and eco-friendly as possible!

Not only do I recycle all my scrap metal (many major jewelry supply houses offer recycling programs), but I recycle my paper and plastic packaging. The boxes, bubble wrap and printed paper I use to ship orders all contain at least 20% post-consumer recycled materials. I recycle my ink cartridges and don't use any harsh chemicals in my work.

It may not be a lot, but it's a start!
