By the designer:
Working towards my goal of re-invention, I have followed a path rife with ups and downs. However, I have found that one can always rewrite one’s story, regardless of age. Breaking free of one’s life is never easy, but I found courage facing the unknown when I left my beautiful home country of Brazil for California to be closer to my daughters and their families.
by R.Я. was formed when I decided to embrace my maternal last name.
I grew up as Renata Rodrigues and I wanted to return to what felt like the true me. The backwards “R” represents my journey with self-reflection. Re-discovering myself and beginning anew has brought meaning to my ever-changing story.
I hope my jewelry, a passion that I truly believe is healing, can accompany you on your own journeys - all with good energy, happiness, and lots of love.
