Read on for the story.
Describe your brand.
Satya Jewelry is handcrafted in New York. We work with semi-precious gemstones and sacred symbols, rendered in sterling silver and 24k gold plate, creating powerful totems of meaning that resonate across generations. Satya, or "truth" in Sanskrit, is both the namesake of our co-founder and the guiding force behind all that we do.
What was the impetus to start Satya?
The brand was founded after Satya attended an intensive yoga training in the Bahamas. It had been a dream to make a difference, by creating jewelry and donating to children's charities around the world. After sharing the idea with her best friend, Beth, Satya Jewelry was one step closer to coming to fruition and now years later, the vision has come to life.
What are some of your endless inspirations?
In living and in wearing one?s truth, we can inspire, and be inspired by, positive change throughout the world.
How does travel inspire your collection?
Traveling to India inspires most of the design. It is in the culture, the colors, the smells and the tastes. It ignites all my senses and the ideas come naturally from these experiences. I go to India once a year for inspiration and to visit some of the orphanages that the Satya Foundation gives to. It is a beautiful experience to see how teaching some of these children how to make jewelry influences their futures in such a positive way.
You work with artisans, tell us about how this came about and a bit about the process?
I have worked with a village of hill tribe families in Thailand from the beginning. One of our factories came across this village and we would sit and draw things with them they would show samples based on our previous visits that eventually translated into our jewelry.
Your collection continues to grow, what creative endeavors are on the horizon?
Our fine jewelry line is an exciting new endeavor.
