La Vie Parisienne Jewelry

Rambling about Paris, Catherine discovered a treasure trove of stampings– many over 200 years old in the old factories and workshops of Paris. Most of these gems were originally designed by celebrated artists and shining lights of their era, such as Lalique, Mucha, Galle and Picasso.

With her vivid imagination, Catherine uses the invaluable treasures of French artistic heritage and style to create an exquisite collection of handmade jewelry and decorative objects.

Catherine, creator and owner of the international jewelry and accessory company La Vie Parisienne, is a Paris native and the leading force reviving the elegance and grace of France's golden Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras.

Sorrelli Jewelry

Lisa Oswald had been designing jewelry since she was a little girl graduating from Kutztown State College with a B.F.A. in Jewelry in 1982, and then, working as an intern in New York City for jewelry designer Debra Fine Yohai. In 1983, with her twin sisters, Susie and Sandy, she started her own business naming the costume jewelry “Sorrelli” (which means sisters in Italian).

The Sorrelli jewelry is handcrafted from the original designs, worked by hand using no casts or jigs, and was first being made in the Oswald kitchen, then in their Brooklyn loft and now today, in a barn studio at their Pennsylvania home in Kutztown, PA. producing nearly 300 new jewelry styles per year and employing 12 crafters. Each piece of jewelry produced with the help of the crafters who used Lisa's original prototypes to guide them through each step of the production, insures us of the creativity and design distinction that one finds in the Sorrelli signature and each piece produced is guaranteed
