Lisa Sisco and Carolyn Berluti, the duo behind Sisco Berluti are sisters from a large, close-knit Italian family. Drawn to the many varieties and textures of both new and vintage beads from around the world, Sisco and Berluti began stringing bracelets as a way to satisfy their creative passions. They created sets of 7 bracelets, each one representing a member of the family. At first, the bracelets were a personalized way to gift family members and friends, but quickly became a coveted commodity through word of mouth among discerning consumers and buyers of high-end boutiques. Within a short time, Sisco Berluti has become a highly sought-after brand.
The family team uses the success of their jewelry line to help causes that carry significant meaning for their family, including Half the Sky Foundation
, working to care for orphans in China, and FORCE,
Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, which works to find a cure for hereditary breast and ovarian cancers.
