After graduating with a double major in Advertising/Marketing, and Radio/
TV, Patricia Rahme compiled 12 years of experience in this field before deciding to follow her dream. Patricia’s passion for sculpting and rings led her to Florence, Italy, where she enrolled in Alessandro Dari Jewelry School. This institution is directed by Alessandro Dari, a famous jewelry sculptor, and also known as the chosen artist of the Vatican. During her studies in Florence, she learned
the original method of sculpting the mold of any jewelry piece. Though she did not have much experience in this field, the creative talent acquired in her original work field helped her excel in her new vocation. As a result, Patricia won a full scholarship at the Alessandro Dari Jewelry School to continue the studies for an additional 8 months.
After two intense years in Italy, Patricia decided to come back to her home country, to create a new opportunity and revive this artistic craft to the
Lebanese community. She returned to Lebanon in April of 2014 with the goal of having her own trademark. As a consequence, Patricia designed 245 rings jewelry pieces for brand launch at Quantum Villa in Sursock during December of 2014.
Using the techniques, she learned in Italy, she started designing her rings and promoting them. After a while my hard work paid off and Patrizia, the brand she made, started gaining ground and fame not only among some celebrities in Lebanon, but also internationally. Patrizia was selected to exhibit at the JA New York, in Manhattan during March of 2016. JA NY includes more than 725 of the world’s finest jewelry brands, designers & suppliers. Also, she
was the only Lebanese Jewelry designer chosen among international painters and sculptors to participate during the World Art Dubai fair during April 2016.
Recently some of her designs were selected to be exhibited by Gallerique Chicago, organization that select premier pieces of work from galleries, dealers and artists from around the world.
What sets Patrizia’s creations apart other designers is the fact that her jewelry is totally handcrafted from the initial conception of the design, till the final touches of the jewels. The rings she builds are one of a kind, the craftsmanship behind each piece not only makes it unique, but also adds a human touch to it. Patrizia’s rings enjoy different textures, material, metals, precious stones, each one tells a story of its own and tells the story of its owner. These methodologies, she believes are also very important topics that should be taught simultaneously with technique to young artists in an academic environment.
