Level 1 of the workshop allows the participants to sculpt Wax models into a piece of jewelry using their own creativity and following the guidelines of a specific theme.
The first phase will cover the theoretical aspect of the craft, where the students learn from the observation of real forms, training in geometrical designs, and studies of the golden section. They also learn the use of certain particular tools and wax carving.
Level 2 of the workshop is the practical reproduction of architectonic and anatomic elements in casting & rubber mold making, working with metal, polishing and finalizing the jewelry pieces.
After graduating with a double major in Advertising and Marketing, and Radio/TV, Patricia Rahme compiled 12 years of experience in this field before she decided to follow her dream. Patricia’s passion for sculpting and rings led her to Florence, Italy, where she enrolled in Alessandro Dari Jewelry School. During her studies in Florence, Patricia 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 she 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 her studies for an additional 8 months.
Further to two intense years in Italy, Patricia returned to Lebanon in April of 2014 with the goal of having her own trademark under the name “Patricia”. The first collection “Think as a Man” consisted of 245 rings. The Brand launch was held at Quantum House during December of 2014. Patricia was selected to exhibit her jewelry pieces at the JA – New York, in Manhattan during March of 2016. Patricia was also the only Lebanese Jewelry designer chosen among international painters and sculptors to participate during the World Art Dubai Fair during April 2016. Recently she was selected to exhibit at Gallerique Chicago, an organization that chooses premier pieces of work from galleries, dealers and artists from around the world. In Lebanon, Patricia is known as the “Ring maker”. Rings and Jewelry lovers are always excited to visit her in her Atelier and showroom, located in the heart of Achrafieh, in order for them to discover new designs where each piece tells a Story.
