Saressa Designs + True Blood

Posted on January 01, 2013 by Rachel Hughes

Wow, 2012 is gone. It sort of feels like Total Recall, thinking back on this last year. In January, I was just getting my feet wet on Etsy, had barely begun to build this website, and was so stoked about having my first wholesale account under my belt which meant my designs were carried in 2 shops. I was totally excited to try and change that. Now, with barely a toe dipping into 2013 I have grown from being carried by 2 shops, to 16 shops. Yep,16 and there is a chance that number will increase again before month of January is out. I'm stunned, grateful to the 100th power and a little exhausted... in a good way. I was also blessed to be picked up by Parker + Paige and The Artisan Group which I wholeheartedly believe has helped expand my line in such a drastic way. I have so much more I could blab on about, but I will simply say THANK YOU to all of my colleagues and customers for making 2012 so amazing. I cannot wait for all that 2013 has in store for my line. Now, I want to kick off 2013 with some amazing news that I've been dying to share.

A few weeks ago, I had the incredible opportunity through The Artisan Group, to submit one piece of jewelry to Audrey Fisher, the amazing costume designer for HBO's True Blood. I decided to send in my newest design, my Ice Age necklace, which I just finished prior to the opportunity coming up. My gut told me it was the right piece to submit, so I did without hesitation. Within 24 hours of confirmation that Audrey had received my necklace, I was informed that it was selected to be used in the upcoming season (6) of True Blood. Um, Er-Mah-Gerd! (<-- OMG. For those of you who have no idea what that's about just google the word w/o the hyphens). I don't have confirmation yet as to who will be wearing my necklace but once I find out who, when and where, I will be sure to update you all. I'm incredibly excited and flattered to have been chosen, and I think this is an incredible way to start the new year off. Here's a photo of the necklace along with a link to the item description here on site:
