Jewelry designer Peggy Li raises money for Redwood Empire Food Bank with Santa Rosa-inspired necklace
A Santa Rosa-raised, Los Angeles jewelry designer is donating the proceeds from one of her necklaces to the Redwood Empire Food Bank to help fire survivors.
Peggy Li is donating 100% of her Rosette necklace sales to the Santa Rosa organization after recent wildfires. Earlier this summer, she also donated 25% of the necklace’s proceeds to the food bank to help those affected by the pandemic, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Li designed the piece, named after her hometown, after the Tubbs fire in 2017 as a fundraiser for the food bank and raised $2,000 through the effort, according to her website.
Prices range from $49 for a sterling silver version to $59 for one that is 14K gold-filled.
Li founded Peggy Li Creations nearly 20 years ago, and her pieces have appeared in shows such as “Riverdale,” “Little Fires Everywhere” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
She told the Times that she is inspired by the “natural beauty” of the West Coast.
“California inspires my designs to be simple, colorful and ever-changing,” she said.
The Rosette necklace is sold online, along with other pieces, at peggyli.com.
