7 Questions With Patrizia

Fashion scene

We first met Patricia Rahme, the creator behind the design label 'Patrizia', through a common friend. We were then lucky enough to have her join us on Raghunter and then got to know her a little better when Narina asked Patricia to design her bridal jewelry set for her wedding (see more on that at end of the article).

What we love about Patricia is that she was one to really pursue her passions. She used to worked in TV production for years and then made the decision to quit and go study sculpture in Florence, Italy for a year and a half.

She returned to Beirut with new ambitions to create and design unique handmade pieces. Patricia uses wax sculptures as the basis behind all her designs. Her specialty lies in making all sorts of rings - and they are really some of the most original designs we've seen around Beirut. Brass rings, tree brand rings, dragon rings, you name it. Oh, and she designs rings for both men and women alike.

We popped over to her showroom and atelier in a quiet street in Achrafieh to see everything first hand. Her space is absolutely quaint and beautiful, with lots of sun shining through and her positive energy radiating throughout. We had the best time taking photos, talking about her work, seeing how she goes through her design process, and of course trying on as many of her rings as possible.

The Miracle song for Queen. We have daily miracles; we just need to open our eyes! Life itself is a miracle! “Peace on earth and end of war, today!”

5. Dream dinner guest, living or not?

Who else but the genius, Michelangelo! I'd prepare him a delicious meal and talk for hours about every single one of his masterpieces. I'd try to convince him to be his apprentice and to reveal his secret techniques.
