Jessica Strang

Jessica Strang is the designer and founder of the online-only jewelry brand coco + peach, launched in 2019. Jessica is passionate about designing timeless, well crafted, effortless and affordable jewelry for all people. Her pieces are meant to be worn from day to night, from the grocery store to the gala and everywhere in between. She has been surrounded by jewelry since birth as she comes from a long line of jewelers and draws on this first hand experience in designing her accessories. As a first-generation daughter of Ecuadorian and Colombian parents, Jessica also uses her platform to highlight and celebrate BIPOC people and her own culture and background. coco + peach is also a Cause Partner with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and donates $1 of every sale to this organization.

Jessica’s work has been featured in publications including Who What Wear, Stylecaster, Fashion Bomb Daily, Vogue Japan, Vogue Ukraine, Harper’s BAZAAR Vietnam, and L’Officiel India. Her jewelry was also featured in a LAFW 2022 (for the Perry Jones Collection) and a Times Square billboard 2022 (for Alicia Perrillo at NYFW). When she is not designing jewelry, Jessica works in her private practice as a clinical psychologist and co-hosts a therapy podcast.
