Lucy Lollio (Founder, Director)
As a driven and motivated person, Lucy Lollio had a very rewarding management career in sales and marketing for some of Australia’s most well known utility and telecommunications companies then in 2004 she left the corporate world to start her family.
While Lucy was exploring what direction she next wanted to take next, she noticed much disappointment in the jewellery that was available online and in stores and identified a gap in the market for quality jewellery at a reasonable price. Her vision was then to develop a flexible jewlelery business to fit around her growing family.
After months of planning and many hours behind her computer Lucy had designed and put together a stunning range of jewellery. She decided on a party-plan style of business and called it “Juicy Jewels”. In time, her dedication and skills saw the business expand, eventually employing stylists across Australia. The team of Stylists continues to grow around Australia. Each of these Stylists are building their own business and growing their own dreams.
In 2011 Lucy met Andrew Morello and Gary Ng who had a similar entrepreneurial vision. They soon joined forces on the 2nd of October 2012 and became co-founders of their new company Bellagio & Co.
Lucy, her partners and their team of stylists believe in empowering the unique and inner beauty in every client. The team embraces their mission to create a lifestyle of happiness, excitement and independence, inspiring others to live their dreams.
