Layered Friendship Bracelets

I am currently obsessed with simple threaded friendship bracelets! Stack them, layer them, pile these bracelets on your arm for just a touch of bling. I use a waxed (with all-natural beeswax) Irish linen thread, which comes in a variety of colors, and simple charms and beads for these handmade bracelet creations.

My favorite bracelets to layer are my sparkly Thai Tiny Beaded Bracelet plus my Mixed Beaded Bracelet. Throw in any of the Tiny linen charm bracelets and voila! A beautiful pile of arm candy!  I've chosen a violet linen thread, silver beads and a sterling silver horseshoe charm.

And imagine these bracelets mixed with any of my leather or suede bracelets -- yummy! Pictured below, my Braided Leather beaded bracelet and a linen Peace Charm Bracelet on red thread.

Doesn't this Open Circle Suede bracelet is pretty, but wouldn't it be nicer layered with some Tiny Beaded linen bracelets?

I'm currently working on some linen beaded bracelets featuring Japanese seed beads in gold or mixed with vibrant colored beads. These "Zipper" bracelets will be available on the website soon! What do you think?

What are your favorite styles of friendship bracelets? There are great how-to tutorials on You Tube or on website Honestly WTF if you feel inspired to make some of your own.


Celebrity Style Inspiration: Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is often a polarizing figure -- you either love her or hate her. Living life as a power duo with her partner Brad Pitt, Angelina is an actress, activist and advocate. I love her poise, her sense of self, and her commitment to discovering her full potential as a woman and person.

Angelina is a full-on glamorous Hollywood movie star. Her fashion has ranged from goth to glam and her always sexy style is a true celebrity style inspiration! Two of my favorite Angelina fashion moments came at the 2012 SAG Screen Actors Guild Awards and the 2009 Oscars.
Angelina Jolie at the 2012 SAG awards, wearing amazing black and gold vintage jewelry from House of Lavande.
Angelina Jolie at the 2009 Academy Awards wearing  incredible emerald drop earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. These earrings are valued at 2.5 million dolars! 
Here are two of my Peggy Li Creations jewelry designs that channel some of Angelina's glam:

Black Tourmaline Earrings feature craggy stones and a gold-plated over silver earwire. Beautiful, natural black stones with natural inclusions and character.
Onyx Fringe Earrings. Glam black onyx stones with a cascading gold fringe.  A modern take on a vintage look!
Dramatic Swarovski hoop earrings feature vintage Swarovski  emerald-cut crystals.  Intense green color of these vintage stones just pop!
I love taking celebrity looks and transforming them into more wearable fashion! Check out the gold circles necklace I made that was inspired by a look worn by Selena Gomez. Are there any celebrity looks you are dying to find and and see?
