I love what I do and hope it shows with every piece of jewelry I create

I began wire wrapping jewelry in 2004. At first, it was just a progression along the road of designing jewelry as a hobby... a way to make pieces I would want to wear. After a few months, my sister in law encouraged me to approach a shop about a block from her work. I was terrified, but took her suggestion to heart and contacted the owner of Lemontree. She loved my work and I began selling my jewelry to the public. We've been working together for 10 years now!

In 2006 I took a break from design to have a bone tumor removed from my right arm. I was blessed to have a benign tumor, but the experience left me a little shaken.
Once I recovered, I continued to design with a new passion and launched Saressa Designs on Etsy in 2011.

I have continuously been learning, dancing outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to do more things than I ever thought possible.

Quality design and customer service are both so important to me. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to brighten someone else's day with something that comes from my 2 hands. I am SO thankful for each and every customer and always strive to show that with every transaction.

Frequently asked questions
When Will My Order Ship?

Most orders will ship within 1-2 weeks, unless otherwise noted in the listing. Each listing has the estimated production time noted under the item description. We will always meet these times, but strive to make and ship your order as efficiently as possible. Please feel free to contact me for order status any time.

What is Gold-Filled Metal?

Gold Filled metal differs from gold plated metal. Gold Filled is composed of a solid layer of gold that is heat / pressure bonded to itself around a core of base metal (usually brass). This layer is 100% thicker than gold plating (usually a thin microfilm of gold at best) and is tarnish resistant for this reason as well as higher in value than plated metals or sterling silver. It wears like solid gold and will last years if cared for properly. Gold Filled metal is also allergy safe for most.

Gold Vermeil is gold plating over sterling silver instead of a brass or other base metal material

See our jewelry care instructions for more details on keeping your jewelry looking like new.

Care instructions

Some gemstones, especially Druzy, need a little extra love to retain their beauty. Chemicals in everyday products can strip these tiny crystals of their luster and shine. See our full care instructions here: https://www.saressadesigns.com/pages/caring-for-your-jewelry

We also ship a sweet little 'care card' with each order, so you know just how to care for your jewelry. If you need little zip lock bags for storage, we have them and try to reduce waste by sharing them. Leave me a note at checkout if you want some shipped with your order.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each order ships out in a gift box, ready to give.

~ Orders for multiple items will come in 1 gift box by default, to reduce waste. If you want items packaged in separate gift boxes, leave us a note during checkout or via convo and we'll prep your pretties to individually give.

~ During the Christmas/Holiday season, we package every item in its own gift box, to save you some time and hassle. Each box will have a discreet mark on the packing list next to the line item that matches the same mark on the bottom of the gift box so you know what's inside.

~ Orders for multiples of the same items are packaged in individual gift boxes always.

Does Your Jewelry Contain Nickel?

Our jewelry does not contain nickel. All items are made with precious metals (Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Fill, 14k Rose Gold Fill) that are tested and certified to be free of nickel and lead.

A few designs may include a charm that is made of high quality gold vermeil or plating. This is noted in every single listing, so you know what you're getting. These few components are also lead and nickel free.

Feel free to ask questions about materials! We want you to feel as confident as we do of the quality of materials we use.

Tracking Shows My Package As 'Delivered' But I Have Not Received My Item

This occurs with USPS from time to time with several reasons as the possible culprit. Most often your mail courier scanned the package for delivery but forgot to leave it in the mailbox or on your porch. If this is the case the package will likely turn up in a few days.

Please be sure to check any spaces on / around your porch and check with neighbors across from and adjacent to your home as packages are sometimes delivered there by accident.

You may also need to visit the post office your mail is delivered from with ID & tracking # in hand. Sometimes packages are misplaced and can be found waiting at the post office.

If your package is still M.I.A. please contact us immediately.

Why Is The Estimated Shipping Date So Far Out?

Etsy auto-confirms the estimated shipping date of your order based on our production times. For example, if our production time is 1-2 weeks, the estimated shipping date will automatically show as the very last day of that time frame. This is something we do not control.

As each item is hand made to order by me (Rachel), in my Portland, OR studio, production times vary based on order volume. Orders will ship within the production window shown, but not necessarily on the very last day of that window.

I always strive to create and ship your pieces as quickly and efficiently as I can. I am so excited to make them for each of you!

Do You Offer Wholesale

Yes! I am currently accepting new wholesale orders from brick + mortar shops. Please email info@SaressaDesigns.com for more information.
