After several years working on Wall Street, Lisi Lerch started her company in the Spring of 2001 while working full time in the recruiting office at Cornell University. Her brand initially offered classic, Kentucky Derby hats that she was inspired to create due to the lack of affordable women’s hats she saw in the marketplace. A few years later she decided to test the waters and dabble in jewelry-making, which became an instant obsession.
A lover of antique jewelry, Lisi Lerch credits the creative direction of her jewelry to her grandmother’s exquisite collection of jewels. Growing up, she was enamored by her grandmother’s fascinating jewelry that always had an incredible story behind it.
