Launched in 2011, Rahya Jewelry Design was created with the strong influence of nature and organic form. Rahya's unique vision and strong aesthetic is translated into each collection. Influenced by mid-century modern design, her jewelry captures timeless composition, and celebrates simplicity and integration with nature.
Originally born and raised in New Orleans, Rahya attended New Orleans Center for Creative Arts where she was immersed in an environment bursting with like-minded artists. Educated as a bench jeweler, Rahya received her BFA in Metals and Jewelry from Savannah College of Art and Design. She also studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City and The Art Institute of Chicago.
Rahya currently lives in Austin where she designs in her East Austin studio.
