RA HA Jewelry was founded in 2016 by Julia Sullivan in Providence, RI. What started as a side project in her spare bedroom quickly grew into a full-scale business in a separate studio space. RA HA’s female-led team now sells in 20+ stores and fairs across the country.
10% of all income from this site is donated directly to charities focusing on education, climate change, civil and human rights. Please visit our Giving back page for more information on this.
The term “Ra Ha” translates to all things positive. Swahili? Freedom. Estonian? Wealth. Nyanja? Comfort. Here at RA HA, we radiate good vibes—and a little bit of magic—so you can shine on, and shine bright.
Meet the Founder
Julia Sullivan graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2010 with a BFA in printmaking. She is an artist, jewelry maker, and a licensed pilot. (For real.) After living in Paris for a couple years, she returned to Providence and said “oui, merci!” to ceramics. In 2016, she made a few jewelry pieces out of ceramic beads in addition to her hefty sculptures for a RISD holiday sale. They sold out within the hour. That sealed the deal: jewelry making was the way to go (and, ok, earrings are a lot easier to carry.) Her favorite piece to wear? An ear bar (she never takes it off).
