Holiday Inspiration: The Night Sky

This Holiday season we drew our inspiration from the heavens above! Featuring designs inspired by the sun, moon and stars, The Night Sky collection is a celebration of the celestial bodies that govern our internal rhythms, encouraging us to shine brightly amidst even the darkest night.

New pendant necklaces and earrings mimic the night sky with white topaz stars that glisten like beacons against obsidian gunmetal backgrounds, their contrast infusing each design with inspiration and illuminating the path of dreams.

 

Sun symbols in gently hammered gold scatter light and harness vitality, calling to their wearer to embrace sacred life force.

Stretch bracelets in healing gemstones of hematite, black onyx and white jade capture the dichotomy of light and dark; stars and sky; sun and moon.

A mala—or ancient prayer necklace—of healing white jade stones evokes the luminescence of the moon, lending unity, protection and understanding to its wearer.

As we gaze upward into the night sky, we are reminded of our souls’ infinite potential; we accept the invitation from the heavens, allowing our sacred light to illuminate the darkness.

Passion, Experience & Wisdom: Satya’s Top Tips for Entrepreneurs

For anyone who has ever launched a business, you know it begins with passion: Whatever you’re interested in doing, you find you just can’t bear not doing more of it. Suddenly, that hobby morphs into a thriving side hustle, or you make the leap to launching a full-time endeavor. (Either way, congrats are in order!) But while passion will certainly serve you well along the way, nothing compares to having time tested wisdom from someone who’s been there—through all of the ups and downs that entrepreneurship inevitably brings. In honor of National Boss Day and Satya Jewelry’s 17th anniversary, we tapped our founder Satya Scainetti for her top tips for entrepreneurs. Read on to glean some of Satya’s wisdom—and get ready to be inspired!

1. Practice absolute self-care:

However you define self-care, make it a top priority, Satya advises. For her, honoring her spiritual practice during her morning ritual, eating well and exercising daily are key components to being a successful boss. Taking care of herself first helps her recharge, leaving her ready to face whatever the day has in store. As any business owner can attest, it can be all too easy to work from the moment you open your eyes and reach for your phone—but that can lead to burnout. “Step away!” Satya says. “Recharge any way you can.” By making self-care a top priority, you’ll be better equipped to receive creative inspiration, think critically and show up fully for your business and your employees.

2. Be flexible:

“Embrace the ebb and flow,” Satya offers. From her background in social work, Satya learned problem-solving and adaptation skills that serve her well in running Satya Jewelry. Things won’t always go the way you think they’re going to when you’re an entrepreneur, so, she says, “You have to evolve and be willing to be flexible.” This will not only help you alleviate stress from day to day, but will benefit your business in the long run as you learn to pivot and act accordingly.

3. Change your perception:

Switching up your attitude can make all the difference in being a successful boss. Sure, we all get frustrated, and there may be days where you question if being an entrepreneur is right for you. But just changing your perception can go a long way in building your business and maintaining your sanity. “Take a challenge as an opportunity to learn and grow,” Satya shares. By doing so, you’ll gain invaluable wisdom you can fall back on the next time you come up against an obstacle.

 

4. Keep moving!

“Don’t get stuck on the 20% that’s not working,” Satya advises. “Be excited about the 80% that is working!” So often, we dig in and try to fix what seems “broken”—and we forget to look at the big picture and take in what’s helping our business to thrive. “Don’t get stuck on the smaller losses,” she says. “That will only create a downward cycle. Instead, know that sometimes being imperfect is perfect. You’ve got personalities to manage, product to sell, finances to deal with—you can’t get stuck. Keep moving. Be excited about the wins.”

 

5. Lead by example:

A positive attitude, a calm demeanor in the face of a crisis, treating others equitably —these are all important qualities in a boss. Not only can they help keep morale up, but such traits can engender loyalty. One more thing an entrepreneur can do to gain the respect of others in the company? “Lead by example,” says Satya. “Work every bit as hard as your employees. It goes a long way.”

6. Practice non-attachment.

For a boss, planning ahead is necessary. Between goal setting, budgets, and marketing calendars, you take countless steps to try and ensure your business continues to thrive. At the end of the day, though, even the best-laid plans may not pan out. This is when the beauty of non-attachment reveals itself. By letting go of what you had planned on (hoped for!), you can gain a new perspective on what’s happening in there here and now, Satya shares. Go ahead and feel whatever you’re feeling when you meet a challenge; the trick to non-attachment is to acknowledge your emotions and then let them go. This allows you the freedom to continue on with your day, your week, your month. Non-attachment works for positive emotions as well; simply pay attention to the happiness or pride you’re feeling, then let it go so you can tune in to the beautiful now.

 

 

Inspiration Behind the New Chakras Collection

Inspired by the healing energy that flows between the mind, body and spirit, Satya Jewelry has created the New Chakra Collection, an assortment of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings to support and balance the chakras, or sacred energy centers throughout the body.

Black onyx, gemstone of perseverance, grounding and  endurance figures prominently throughout the collection. A new mala, or ancient prayer necklace, pairs black onyx beads with healing gemstones, encouraging balance and energy flow.

Celebrating 17 Years of Satya Jewelry: Reflection, Gratitude & Setting Intentions for the Future

September is upon us, and as always with the passage of a season, I am both excited for what lies ahead and already a bit wistful for what we’re leaving behind. Still, my aim is to be present in the moment, to be grateful for what is—here, now. That sense of gratitude often leads me to reflect on the journey that has brought me where I am today, and all that I have to be thankful for. This year, Satya Jewelry celebrates 17 years in business, and as I write this, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the guiding forces that have led me here, the customers who have supported us throughout the years and for all the people who have walked this path with me. Today, I want to share the intentions I have for the future of Satya Jewelry—and I invite you to continue to walk this very blessed journey with me.

 

Spirituality

Satya Jewelry has been, since its inception, a brand rooted in spirituality. We remain committed to helping others find their truth, no matter their religion (or lack thereof). “Though the paths are many, the truth is one” is a cornerstone of our foundation; we seek to uplift, inspire and to connect to a higher purpose through meaningful jewelry—no matter how we may arrive at our shared destination.

Empowerment

It is my intention to remind each person who wears our jewelry of their innate potential—their infinite beauty, their boundless capacity for love, their wisdom, talent and strength. However you come to Satya Jewelry—whether you choose it for yourself or have had it gifted to you by someone else—I hope that each time you wear it, you wear it as an act of self love and feel empowered to walk the path to your highest truth. I hope you feel beautiful!

Supporting Women

Satya Jewelry is a woman-owned and operated company, and it has always been—and will continue to be—a place that employs and supports equality for all women. When women come together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish! It is always my intention to foster connection through beautiful jewelry, through shared stories, through both commonality and differences.

Diversity

Satya Jewelry is for everyone—all walks of life, all religions, all gender identities and sexual orientations. It is my intention to make everyone feel not only welcome when they shop our pieces, but to make them feel seen, supported and celebrated. Diversity is beautiful, and as is evident in our multi-cultural office, it only makes us stronger!

Giving Back

When I was first called to found Satya Jewelry 17 years ago, I knew the foundation of this business would be giving back. Since its launch, our customers have helped Satya Jewelry raise over a million dollars through The Satya Foundation. My intention to make a difference through the creation of meaningful jewelry is as true now as it was then; in giving to others, we receive the greatest, most precious gifts. Today we also support benefit many other beautiful causes through our gifts that give back including the Save Elephant Foundation, Tibet House and Next For Autism (just to name a few). I can’t wait to see what else we can accomplish in the years to come!

The Inspiration Behind The Universal Strength Collection

In order to build anything lasting in life, we need to have a strong foundation. The Universal Strength collection is dedicated to the time, care, and patience that’s required while embarking on life’s most meaningful pursuits.
