The Susan Hauser Designs Story

  Susan Hauser Designs was born over 15 years ago in Charleston, SC.   Always drawn to art and design, I found a small local art studio where I learned artisan techniques for making my own jewelry and my passion for creating custom pieces began.

I became fascinated with the qualities and natural beauty of faceted gemstones.  Especially their ability to elevate the everyday and help women feel beautiful.  The hues and colors of the gems speak to us individually and invoke feelings of inner beauty. Each of us has our favorite color palette that can be worn as colorful jewelry.  I began studying more about the characteristics of gemstones and thus began the quest for the highest quality gems and pearls for my designs. 

Over the years of selling through local galleries and shows, I also developed  a passion for incorporating vintage and estate finds into my designs.  My love of estate jewelry grew out of time spent living and working in Charleston.  A city that is rich in history, as well as art, it offers a wealth of opportunity to hunt for unique treasures and I find each locket or iconic treasure has a story of its own. 

I continue to find inspiration in the colors of the Southern Sunsets and historical architecture of the city.  The serenity of the sea and sweeping marshes woven throughout the landscape are also a part of the everyday existence that feed the soul and inspire my collections  I also adore all things French and am influenced by classic European design. 

We also welcome custom orders for weddings, special events, and clients who have a treasured family heirloom or would like to choose from a curated collection of lockets and religious medals.  


I hope you find a special treasure on the site to call your own.


Thank you for joining in my mission to bring beauty to everyday life!
