Flashback: "Superbad"! Peggy Li Creations jewelry worn by Emma Stone, Martha MacIsaac

"Superbad" is one of those movies that has become a teen classic, taking raunch and geeky insecurities and humor to a whole new level. We will never forget the breakout performances from Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and oh yeah, that guy who played McLovin'. It also marked a big breakout debut for one sparkling Emma Stone, who plays dorkably loveable Jules. I was so excited to hear that my jewelry designs, Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry made it into the film! And now you can see them anytime on DVD.

See Martha MacIsaac as Becca wearing my Peace Tag necklace:

As well as my Champagne Bubble necklace worn by Emma Stone!  I'm sure we'll be seeing even more amazing movies from Emma Stone, she currently is in "Crazy Stupid Love" and "The Help" and will soon play Gwen Stacy in the Spiderman reboot!

FAQ: Jewelry on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer Season 6 Part I

So excited for Sarah Michelle Gellar's new TV show, Ringer, which premieres in September! It's got me thinking about the exciting days when I would watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer on TV every week, hoping to see my jewelry worn by the cast. I was never more thrilled than seeing Sarah Michelle Gellar wearing one of my floating crystal chokers!

The fun continued during season 6 where my jewelry designs were worn by Alyson Hannigan, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson and more. This post is part I of the jewelry pieces featured on Buffy, then check out post Part II!

Season 6 season premiere episode "Beginnings" was certainly the beginning; this episode gave us hints of Dark Willow to come. Here, Alyson Hannigan as Willow wears a blue chalcedony necklace on sterling silver chain (right before dispatching an innocent fawn).

I loved this handmade necklace I created that featured round amber beads and a red carnelian pendant. The small round beads in amber (fossilized tree sap!) were truly a unique find. I bought all I could find and have never seen them again! Willow wore this necklace a few times during the season.

In this episode, "Life Serial", Willow wears one of my most popular jewelry designs of the time, a hand knotted silk necklace featuring a mix of semiprecious stones. This necklace has amethyst, garnets and carnelians. I also offered this design in a silk bracelet that a customer recently asked me about. Maybe I will bring it back? Thoughts?

More Willow! Here, in the episode "All the Way", Alyson Hannigan wears a necklace I created featuring a vintage glass pendant that I wire-wrapped and matched with a leather cord.

The lovely Amber Benson as love interest Tara also wore some of my jewelry designs. Here, in Buffy episode "Smashed", she wears tourmaline earrings and a matching handmade tourmaline necklace that has a vintage amber pendant.

When I started making jewelry, I was always drawn to unusual stones and pendants, often using vintage components. Many of the necklaces and earrings were one-of-a-kind and such a pleasure to make. It was even more amazing to see these pieces being used on a hit TV show! As my business grew, I had to think about creating pieces that more than one person could enjoy. But that doesn't mean I don't still make one of a kind pieces, or work on custom jewelry designs for my customers.

all the best,

Feather Earrings, Feather Jewelry

With the current burst in the feather hair extension trend going on right now (do we have Steven Tyler of American Idol to thank?) and seen on actresses everywhere, including the Glee girls Dianna Aragon and Ashley Fink, and one of my style inspirations, Vanessa Hudgens, I thought it would be a good time to revive some feather jewelry creations for Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry!

I first dabbled in feather jewelry back when I made pieces for Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. I used dark black feathers on a floating invisible wire choker, as seen on Harmony in the 4th season episode "Harsh Light of Day". (See other PLC jewelry on Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 4).

Feather accents these days are light, colorful, and made to be seen! While feather hair extensions are attached to your hair, I think feather earrings are a great option because you can add/remove them as you please.

I have two versions available on the site right now, a burst of color from smaller peacock feathers in my Peacock Glow Earrings;

Or a longer version of awesome natural rooster feathers that have an eyecatching tiger-stripe pattern are Long Feather Earrings:

What do you think of feather jewelry and feather accents in fashion?


Celebrity Style Inspiration: Selena Gomez

I've been a fan of Selena Gomez since she first hit the scene as Alex on Wizards of Waverly Place. In fact, I had sent the show some jewelry to be used on the show a few years ago! Her style on the Disney Channel show was a bit boho chic, with lots of colors and TONS of accessories that she would layer. Alex wore hair accessories, bracelets, necklaces, rings -- and her BFF Harper wore quirky jewelry, like fruity earrings, too.

Selena Gomez's style has come a long way since then! Now a regular on the red carpet, she is now turning heads with her elegant, increasingly grown-up fashion. Wearing gorgeous dresses and sporting old Hollywood glamour makeup, Selena is becoming a fashion icon. Her fame is also helped by her current boyfriend, maybe you've heard of him? Justin Beiber!

From Wizards of Waverly Place to the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party. Selena Gomez is changing her fashion for a whole new image. That red dress and classic red lip is a great look!

At the recent Teen Choice Awards, Selena stunned on the red carpet with a cheery yellow Erin Featherstone dress and a simple charm necklace in gold which featured three gold rings. The rings/circles can be symbols of karma, the idea that every cause has an effect, that we are all connected. I loved her look so much, I immediately added my own version of the gold circle necklace to my charm necklaces collection!
Selena Gomez Gold Circles Necklace

Selena Gomez looked stunning at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. I loved the necklace she wore, a delicate karma necklace with gold rings. See my version of the gold circles necklace, now part of my handmade jewelry collection.

Gold Circles Necklace
My version of the Selena Gomez gold rings necklace -- available also in sterling silver!

Hard to believe this girl is only 19 years old. I'd love to know where she goes shopping! Can't wait to see where her chic sense of style takes her next.


Celebrity Style Inspiration: Kate Hudson

I must admit; I'm a huge US Weekly fan and gobble up every issue. One of my favorite celebrities often in the spotlight is Kate Hudson. Kate Hudson's style is so Californian -- with a casual, breezy, sunny ease to her look. With a love for structured suits and bold pattern, Kate has a great range in her style, quirky and free-spirited, which seems exactly like her personality! She often wears Stella McCartney fashion and Jennifer Meyer jewelry, who also happen to be her friends. Can you imagine having fabulous fashion designers as friends? Drool!

Some of my favorite Kate Hudson style looks:

Kate sports big shades, fringe, and a love for clothes with ease at the airport and at the beach.

Red carpet style often includes a sharp suit (with a pop of color) or a magnificent gown, often with a bold pattern!

Kate Husdson wears fab chandelier earrings and a super cool Jennifer Meyer 18k gold nameplate necklace (which costs hundreds of dollars).

Check out my Handmade Jewelry by Peggy Li Creations version of a nameplate necklace featuring hand-stamped letters and your choice of sterling silver or 14k gold-filled. This handmade nameplate necklace is made with care and is personalized with your choice of letters or numbers by me!
Personalized necklaces make great gifts for moms or friends. What is a better mother's necklace than one featuring the name or initials of their children or family? Check out my entire collection of Personalized Necklaces at my shop.

Kate also sports chandelier earrings -- I have some chandelier earrings of my own design, be sure to check them out here! Pictured below, my Gemstone Scroll Earrings.

Who are some of your style inspirations?


Chevron Necklace Inspiration; Navajo Blankets, Jewelry Breastplates

I'm loving the Southwest trend happening in fashion right now. It seemed to start with the more exotic tribal/Ikat and now is moving closer to home, with definite Native American influences.

I took inspiration from this beautiful Navajo blanket, circa 1880. I love the zig zag shape, the simple forms, and repeating pattern that emphasizes the overall motif.

I've created my own chevron zig zag with hammered metal forms. Stacked together, they make a neat armor-like pattern. Here, see the Large Chevron Necklace and Small Chevron Necklace, worn together.

Check out my flowing Chevron Earrings! These Chevron Earrings are in a chandelier earring shape, but are still light and airy.

This fabulous image highlights a Native American wearing a bone breastplate ornament. With my hammered links, you get the same rough-hewn feeling, plus the sense of some sort of ancient armor, but for modern, fashion times!

Looking for something more minimal? I have a new Single Chevron Necklace in three different sizes! Mix and match your metals for even more contrast and detail.

E! News Jewelry: Ashlan Gorse and Kristina Guerrero

E! News entertainment reporters Ashlan Gorse and Kristina Guerrero rocked Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry on recent episodes of E! News. These gals report on the latest celebrity gossip, celebrity fashion and hot entertaiment news, so it was so exciting to see them rocking Peggy Li Creations jewelry!

Kristina Guerrero wears my Needle Necklace with aquamarine stone. Love how the dramatic drop of the necklace complements her decolletage! The combination of the sunny yellow dress from Keepsake and the aquamarine blue from the necklace is a fresh summer confection.

Ashlan Gorse wears my Dots Zipper Earrings (very glam and rock 'n' roll) that add just a bit of glimmer to her outfit. Notice that she is also wearing some rooster feather hair extensions in her hair... don't want the commitment of adding feathers to your hair? Why not try wearing some Peggy Li Creations Long Feather Earrings instead!

A big thank you must go out to @CatWrightStyle for the information on what these lovely E! News ladies are wearing and for supporting a small business like Peggy Li jewelry.
