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.
Educated as a bench jeweler, Rahya received her BFA in Metals and Jewelry from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). She also studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City and The Art Institute of Chicago.
Originally born and raised in New Orleans, her childhood and background nurtured her passion for design. She attended New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), where Rahya was immersed in an environment bursting with like-minded artists. At home, her mother, an accomplished architect, and her father, a skillfully handy businessman, fostered a creative culture.
Rahya's love for the outdoors and nature ultimately drew her westward. Surrounded by the beautiful Hill Country in Central Texas, she currently lives in Austin, where she designs and produces in her home studio.
