The Susan Hauser Designs Story

Thank you for visiting our site! 

 As owner and designer of Susan Hauser Designs, I began creating jewelry over 15 years ago after discovering a small art studio where I learned artisan techniques for making my own pieces. I quickly developed a love of faceted colorful gemstones as they are products of the earth and reflect the interplay between light and nature. Gemstones have been worn as adornment throughout history and invoke feelings of serenity, calm, and inner beauty. Through my designs I hope to invoke these very feelings among those who wear them. 


My love of estate jewelry grew out of my time spent designing and selling my jewelry in Charleston, SC. Charleston is a city that is rich in history, as well as art. I find it to be a beautiful marriage of the two. I continuously 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 part of the everyday existence that I have come to love. I try to recreate that beauty through my collection of estate jewelry redesigned with the highest quality colorful gems and pearls. 


The Fleur de lis, my logo, is a reminder of my college days as a Kappa Kappa Gamma and the sisters who have always remained faithful and strong friends. We have weathered life’s storms together and are still navigating the seas of life. I also have found myself drawn to adore all things French and feel influenced by classic European design. I hope you love wearing each piece as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
