Yira Kahn was born in the Dominican Republic and arrived in Peru in 1986 with her husband. Fascinated by the country, they decided to stay. Already an interior designer, Kahn took several courses in ceramic artistry with famed ceramists Veronica Rock and Jose Luis Yamanuque. Ever creative and imaginative, Kahn decided to try a different artistic outlet in 2001, and she enrolled in jewelry design courses.

Kahn recognizes her artistic instinct has traveled diverse paths; as an interior designer she focused on Caribbean trends. An experienced ceramist, she includes this media in her jewelry designs. She has participated in several exhibitions, individual and collective causing great impact. Her work has been featured in important magazines and she has been interviewed for Peruvian television.

Kahn's jewelry is unique and exclusive for it features the impressive contrast between the colors and texture of ceramic, with the metallic sheen of silver. Her designs are symmetrical, abstract and unique; she does not repeat designs. Kahn's work evidences her continuous search for authenticity and originality, creativity, and estheticism. Nowadays, Kahn is one of Peru's most prestigious jewelry designers.

"Each one of my designs is intended to become a small work of art, a cultural treasure," admits Kahn. "One of my greatest professional challenges came from a client, who commissioned me to create something original for her. She trusted in me blindly, in the end I did what she asked, and she was completely elated.

"I would like to reassure you that each of my designs is made with love, dedication and creativity. It fills me with great pride to be able to share my creations with you. My designs are intended to be worn by every woman, regardless of age, because when I make them, I do not mark them with age."
