Patricia Rahme traveled to Italy two years ago to get away from the stresses of working in advertising, only to end up embarking on an adventure that led to her mastering the art of sculpting.Rahme had worked in the advertising business for 12 years when she decided she had had enough. The museum was that of Alessandro Dari, a famous jewelry sculptor whom Rahme refers to as "the maestro". She soon discovered that the maestro teaches five students a year about the art of sculpting, so she jumped at the chance. English and French are barely spoken in Florence, so Rahme had to spend her evenings taking Italian courses and then spent the late nights doing sculpting exercises.Her creativity drove Rahme to launch her own jewelry brand "Patrizia". She has created over 200 rings in a little over a year, a wide range that she will be displaying at an exhibition on Dec. 6-7 at Quantum House in Ashrafieh's Sursock Street. Rahme's advertising background is still very evident as she considers the first exhibition to be the "launching of her brand" Patrizia, and she's very aware of the fact that making one-of-a-kind pieces is not the best business model.
