Jessica Lu wears Peggy Li Jewelry

I first discovered actress Jessica Lu on the MTV show "Awkward" where she plays quirky Ming, who always wears a knit hat and geeky glasses. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that she is a vibrant, gorgeous, funny and talented young woman who is involved with her community and motivating young people to follow their dreams and make change in the world. I immediately thought she'd be an awesome match with Peggy Li Creations jewelry!
A sweet Tweet from Jessica herself when she opened my jewelry gift package!
 I was so lucky that she was open to trying out a few pieces, including some super fun custom-made necklaces (at her request). I was happy to make them and even more excited to see her appearing at amazing celebrity events wearing my handmade jewelry designs!

 She had asked for some necklaces with color that she could pop with her outfits, so I sent her my Confetti Gem Necklaces in all colors and in a variety of lengths!

How does Jessica Lu look so amazing when she loves Taco Bell!
She also loved the look of my Embellished Stamped Pendant Necklace and I was happy to stamp "JLu" on them.

Jessica has supported events like AIDS Walk Los Angeles, The Trevor Project, raising money for Hurricane Sandy victims, and getting out the vote with The Young Turks. All this and she's hilarious, too. But don't just take my word for it, check her out on Twitter at @HiJessicaLu

Thanks so much, Jessica, can't wait to see what you're going to do next!

Shop Local San Francisco Artists and Peggy Li Jewelry

Support local small businesses this holiday season! The holidays are the one time I take my Peggy Li Creations jewelry business out on the road. I love meeting customers and seeing people's reactions when they get to touch and see my jewelry in person. At my table I often have one-of-a-kind jewelry designs as well as great in-person deals. Let's discuss designs and what types of jewelry items you want to see!

I'll be at six (yikes!) awesome, local holiday shopping events this December. Shop my handmade jewelry and find tons of other local gift items like stationary, housewares, food, clothing and more from other local San Francisco artists. Please stop by any (or all!) of these holiday craft shows and say hello! Keep track of these artisan shows and all of my events year 'round on my website at

Free Shipping on Orders over $100 in November, 2013 News

I'm excited to offer Peggy Li Creations Jewelry customers Free USPS Priority Mail shipping for US customers (or $5.50 off First Class International for international customers) for any order in November over $100*!  There will be other holiday specials going on in the month of November, stay tuned to my Facebook Page or Twitter feed for updates.

There isn't a better time to shop for your holiday gifts. Be sure you check out my Holiday Shipping dates to ensure you receive your orders in the time you need them.

You may also want to shop for your favorite Peggy Li designs in 2012 because in January 2013 I reluctantly must raise prices across my site up to 25% for some styles. Over the past 10 years I've had Peggy Li Creations,  the prices for materials such as silver and gold have steadily increased. For example, the price for silver has approximately doubled over the past three years, per ounce:

October 2009 - $17
October 2012 - $34

Silver prices for the past 5 years.
I am passionate about creating my designs with the best materials, including incorporating recycled metals and US made manufacturers whenever possible. I went full-time with my jewelry business this past May and I've had to take a hard look at my expenses and really get serious about running my business properly, so this is just the first in a series of changes to (hopefully) help my business grow. I am so grateful for all my fans and customers who have supported me over the years and hope you understand this latest change. If you have any questions, please leave a comment on this post or send me an email.

Thanks again and I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
