Jewelry provided for my honest review.
How about some pretty jewelry this evening? I received this lovely bracelet from Satya Jewelry to review. It is from the Arm Yourself Collection and the proceeds are donated to children’s charities.
From their About Us section:
Satya Jewelry is handcrafted with the modern, fearless woman in mind. Designed for the journey, each Satya piece empowers adventurers to inspire and be inspired by the world. Meaningful, radiant, symbolic and powerful, Satya designs incorporate semi-precious stones and sacred symbols into pieces destined to become heirlooms. Satya Jewelry strikes a subtle balance between tradition and ever-evolving style, honoring the infinite potential of all who wear it.
The serpent, symbolizing eternity and immortality, is wrapped around a flexible silk cording and has a lobster clasp in the back.
Here it is on my arm.
The proceeds from this particular bracelet design go to Home of Hope in Africa.
And a closeup…
And how about my manicure that matches the beautiful bracelet?
Satya Jewelry is named for the co-founder of the jewelry line. It is also the name of their registered foundation. This is the part that I like the best. I have a heart for philanthropy and I love that Satya has set up a foundation that has donated over $1 million for children’s groups around the world!
I was able to send Satya a few questions that focused on her charity work…
10NiceNails: I love the concept of giving back. I worked in nonprofit fundraising before having children. Why are you interested in Home of Hope and exploited girls?
Satya: My dear friend and yoga teacher Gurmukh, who travels the world teaching introduced us to the Home of Hope and has taught yoga to the girls there. We have teamed up together and matched donations over the years. Check out their website. She is amazing and so are her girls. She is the real deal completely devoted to helping the girls get off the streets and offer them an education.
10NiceNails: I see that her foundation supports children around the world. Love that! Any special stories from meeting a recipient of her generosity?
Satya: So many stories. I get to go to India every year and see the children and founders of three of the organizations we support.
The children are so appreciated and I see what our foundation has done
first hand. The kids are learning and are well cared for. They are an extension of Satya Jewlery. We are truly blessed.
