Welcome to our blog!! We are Erica and Angela Palmisano, the creative minds behind Sorella Designs and sisters. Raised in the south by very creative parents, growing up we were never very far from a sketch pad, water colors, or craft surplies. We have recently decided to go into business with each other and start Sorella Designs. Sorella means sister in Italian, giving props to our Sicilian heritage. Our first collection has been dubbed the "Wonderland" Collection. The necklaces are all sterling silver and the charms have been made from vintage clock parts. Inspired by Angie's 6 year love(job) of watches and clocks. We have plans to design everything from furniture to jewelry to hand silk screened fabrics.
It is very important to us that we be proactive in the movement to conserve and recycle. We like to take things apart and find new uses for them. We also recycle anything we end up not using and only use organic cottons.
A little more about us: We currently live and work in Athens, GA. Angie is an apprentice at a fine watch repair shop and Erica manages property for a large property owner in town. We each
have a pug, Tucker and Annie. They are quite possibly the funniest dogs ever and are a constant source of laughter.
We've started this blog to document the whole process of starting a business and designing with a sister. We know it won't always be ponies and pigtails, I'm sure we won't agree on everything. What we hope to do is inspire everyone with our ideas and creations...hopefully leaving piece of who we are in each creation. So there you have it, a short (but sweet) little write up about who we are and where we come from. The plan is to take turns writing each day and updating everyone on what we are working on or loving. Enjoy!
