Spearhead Earrings Spotted on Chelsea Kane

Posted on February 13, 2015 by Rachel Hughes

Saressa Designs may be a small indie jewelry line, but big things have been taking place in our small studio! Last year was wonderful, and we couldn't be happier with love and support our fans and community put forth. Some of our favorite highlights for 2014 include hopping on board with Blake Lively's lifestyle website Preserve, seeing our Finn Necklace on The Vampire Diaries (and all over the season 6 promo adverts)  and having our jewels on display at the GBK Celebrity Gift Lounge honoring the Primetime Emmys.  

Then yesterday came news that was the cherry on top of the already fabulous cake! We were informed that actress Chelsea Kane (Baby Daddy, One Tree Hill, The Homes, Dancing With The Stars, etc) was styled for ABC's 25 Days Of Christmas Celebration in NYC this past December in our Spearhead Earrings! I will confess to having taken her photo to my stylist when I chopped my long hair off a few years ago (girl's got great hair), so I nearly dropped my phone when I read the news and saw the pic! 

Below are credited photos of these incredible highlights in 2014. 2015 is already shaping up to be another fantastic year for this small family business.

Saressa Designs + Blake Lively

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Rachel Hughes

When I started designing jewelry 10 years ago, my expectations were pretty small. I just wanted to make a cohesive, quality item I could wear and wanted to wear. Then, when I made the plunge into the abyss of online artists via Etsy, my dream was to actually sell something. Still pretty modest right? As an indie designer, I’ve always strived to make pieces that, while mainstream in the respect that they’re wire wrapped, stand out as original and express individuality in their presentation.  There’s always that hope that something big can happen but also the reality that there is a sea of talented designers with the same hope. With that being said, you can imagine the excitement that has blossomed over time while holding on to this piece of news. And now I get to share it with you all! 


Blake Lively is launching a new website next week, on the 23rd of July, titled Preserve.  Among other things, the site will feature artisan made items that Blake has hand-picked to showcase in a gorgeous collective. Saressa Designs is going to be among those artisans, and I can’t begin to express how excited I am to be a part of this! Follow along and see how some of our designs are styled by going to the pre-launch page here:

See if you can spot our jewelry and stay tuned for more details as they become available. This project has been in the works for quite a while now, and it’s beyond words to finally see this milestone come to pass. Here’s to a long lasting partnership with the incredible Blake Lively and team at Preserve.

On a side note, our ridiculously talented photographer Crystal will be hosting a Saressa Designs giveaway soon.

Saressa Designs Gifting To Selena Gomez

Posted on November 07, 2013 by Rachel Hughes

I have some fun news to share with you guys! As many of you may know, Saressa Designs jewelry has shown up in some incredible places over the last few months, including GBK’s New York Fashion Week and Primetime Emmy’s Luxury Lounges, and the The Vampire Diaires. My most recent press release has more details, including celebs who loved their Saressa Designs jewelry:

Alysia Reiner, of Orange is the New Black, wore her Arrow necklace to the Seth Meyers cover party, celebrating Gotham Magazine’s October 2013 issue. You can see her in photo #6 here:

Ok, time to cut to the chase. So last night, the talented and adorable Selena Gomez performed live at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, putting on an outstanding show to a sold-out arena of fans. The concert was part of her Stars Dance world tour, celebrating her new album. During the after party back-stage, Selena and her crew were gifted swag bags from The Artisan Group. Among the goodies, Selena received one of our Valkyrie necklaces, and a selection of crew members each received an Argonaut necklace (pyrite nuggets)

Both of these are available here at, we well as in my Etsy shop and at select boutiques. The holidays are fast approaching, and these would make wonderful gifts!  Be sure to add them to your wish list so friends and family members know where to find them as well.
