I create all my acrylic jewelry using a laser cutter. I start by drawing on CAD software and then manipulate the designs from there. I offer all of my designs in 12 different colors. If you don't see a color or design you want message me, and I would be more than happy to make something for you!
I met the laser cutter in 2009, and we immediately made a love connection! Its a relationship that has evolved over the years but one that I know will last forever. My laser cut jewelry line is called Olive by Rahya. I love the ability to create jewelry in every color imaginable, for a look thats fun, bright and especially playful. Lately much of my inspiration has come from middle eastern and Asian architecture. I particularly love the Islamic geometric designs that are found in jaali's. A jaali is a perforated screen or lattice work, normally carved out of stone for ornamental purposes. Taking these ancient designs, and translating them into CAD programs and then on to a laser cutter is so amazing!
Olive by Rahya jewelry will fit into anyone’s wardrobe and is meant to give rebirth to your style with simple yet elegant pieces. I combine my own personal style with the strong influence of New Orleans’ elegance and culture. Each piece serves as a symbol of New Orleans, blending elements of romance, architecture and enchantment that are only found in the heart of New Orleans.
