Sorrelli was founded in 1983 by Italian-American Lisa Oswald. From the first beaded clay necklace made when she was a child, Oswald has reveled in her love of self-adornment. She started out making fun costume jewelry in her Brooklyn loft to wear to parties, and was soon joined by her twin sisters to create a strong and distinctive jewelry industry. The name, Sorrelli, was crafted from the Italian word for sister, ‘sorelle’.
Inspired by her love of flora and fauna, Oswald combines antiquity with contemporary style. Sorrelli jewelry is designed to make the wearer feel beautiful, and creates a look that exudes confidence, glamour, and uniqueness. By joining the fluid colors of nature with her keen eye for fashion, Oswald gives women everywhere the chance to sparkle a little bit each day.
