Savings for Cyber Monday

The Monday after Thanksgiving Day weekend has been dubbed "Cyber Monday" to note that more and more gift shoppers are turning to the Web to do their purchases. And why not? You may shop without the hassle of finding parking, waiting in line, or traveling to the store only to find that they don't have what you're looking for.

With Peggy Li Creations as a primarily online handmade jewelry site, Cyber Monday is a big part of my year. When you order early, it gives me time to create your pieces and ship them out in time for you to receive them for any holiday gift-giving. It also ensures that you will get the pieces you want (before they sell out)!

And don't forget my Cyber Monday Deal -- coupon code "HOLIDAY11" for 20% off* anything on my website (that includes sale jewelry items)! Hurry, this offer ends this Monday 11/28/11! *Offer can not be combined with other coupons or used on custom orders.

Use this coupon even on new items like the just posted Amber Droplet Necklace (yummy)!

Thank you for your support of small business and Cyber Monday! Happy Holidays!

Jewelry Finishing Touches

Every single Peggy Li Creations jewelry order goes through my hands. After making thousands of pieces for hundreds of customers, I've been thinking a lot lately about the finishing touches to my pieces. There are some details that I find important to remind myself of as I assemble and create your jewelry pieces!
  • Every wire loop I make and cut, I like to tuck in the loose ends with my pliers.
  • Stones or jewelry components in pairs I choose by hand to match as best as I can in shape, color and size.
  • Each piece gets a final polish to remove fingerprints and give it that last bit of shine before going to its lucky owner!
  • I use the thickest gauge wire possible when making wire connections.
  • With the exception of some vintage materials, I use sterling silver, 14k gold-filled, 14k gold or quality gold overlay and gold plate over silver. I've begun adding domestic bronze from a trusted supplier to give a range of price points and metal color options.
  • One of my goals is to constantly study, learn and improve my techniques through classes, reading and practice, practice!
As is to be expected with handcrafted jewelry designs using handmade components and natural gemstones, variations are going to happen. I actually love the little quirks and irregularities and differences in color, size and texture in the raw natural materials I use -- these are nature's patterns and there is really no way to improve upon the natural beauty or happenstance that goes into the creation of a new piece of jewelry!

I hope that you feel the thought and care put in to every PLC piece and enjoy it! When you purchase a piece of jewelry from me, you have a piece for life.
