Holiday Shipping Dates 2012

Peggy Li Creations Holiday 2012 Shipping Dates! (for 2013 Shipping Dates, click here!)

The holidays are definitely the busiest time for me here at Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry. Holiday shipping dates are now posted at peggyli.com and below:


Please remember that mail often takes longer than posted delivery estimates around the holiday season. Please place your orders early to give me time to make and ship your goodies!

For (Continental US) USPS Priority Mail, FedEx and Global Express customers, please place your order by December 15 to ensure delivery by December 24th.

For USPS International Priority Customers, please place your order by December 7 to ensure delivery by December 24th.

If you miss these dates, I'll do my best to ship your packages as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding! Please feel free to email me if you have questions about your order.

I'm also happy to introduce for my International Peggy Li Creations jewelry customers the option to choose First Class International mail for the flat rate of $8. This option has no tracking and takes up to 14 business days to reach you from the date of shipment. This requires I take your item to the Post Office, so shipments may not occur every day. However, it is a more economical way to ship vs. USPS International Priority mail.

Have a question? Shoot me an email via http://www.peggyli.com.


Rebecca Romijn Wears Jewelry by Peggy Li

I mean, wow. Rebecca Romijn wearing Peggy Li Creations necklaces! Better known as Mystique from X-men, supermodel, former Rebecca Romijn Stamos (now married to Jerry O'Connell).

Rebecca has been starring in quirky Adult Swim comedy NTSF:SD:SUV, a parody of police procedurals also starring Paul Sheer, Kate Mulgrew and June Diane Raphael. She plays Jessie Nichols, the super nerdy lab tech who also just happens to be drop dead gorgeous (even if she isn't doused in blue body paint!). Here, she wears my Smoky Quartz bubble necklace in episode "Lights, Camera, Assassination" and in "Comic-Con-Flict"

I always love seeing amazing actresses like Rebecca Romijn wearing my necklaces and jewelry. Check out my website and see all of my Peggy Li Creations Press.


Henri Bendel Open See NYC Oct 19, 2012

Designers, here is your chance to show your work to the buyers at famous NYC store Henri Bendel!

Get more info here: Henri Bendel Fall 2012 Open See.

There can often be tons of people waiting to be seen, so go as early as you can and be prepared to wait. I brought my handmade jewelry many years ago to an Open See they had in Los Angeles, and while the rejection was swift, it was still a very interesting and educational experience. I brought jewelry samples in a shoebox (literally!) and probably should have prepared just a little bit more.

You can start by checking out the other lines carried at Henri Bendel and decide if your work fits in. Henri Bendel has been a New York institution for many years and it is known for accessories (think scarves, gloves and hair accessories). It's like your fashionable Aunt's closet. Think beautiful details and luxe finishes, but at a wide range of price points.

Bring samples of your work that really speak to what you are about, your very best and most representative pieces. Have your story ready for the buyer (that you can give in 30 seconds or less), and know what your target market and price point is. They want to know what your design aesthetic is (like they say on Project Runway -- what does your jewelry say about you?) and how they would market you next to the other designers they already carry.

Even if the answer is "no", remember to be gracious and polite, and be sure to get contact info and request if it would be OK to follow up (and go off and refine your pitch!). I got a the business card of the jewelry buyer before leaving.

Good luck!
