S A T Y A S C A I N E T T I, CEO and co-founder of Satya Jewelry, has achieved worldwide success by creating stunning, symbolic jewelry that reflects her customers' personal style and truth. A philanthropist, yogi and Reiki healer, Scainetti lives a lifestyle dedicated to giving back to the world community. Raised in a large family of artists, Scainetti's love of music and fashion ignited her passion for jewelry design at a young age. Later, she moved to Manhattan, where she launched her career in design and developed her unique aesthetic at esteemed fashion accessories houses. The name Satya traces its roots to yoga and spiritual enlightenment. After attending a 35-day Sivananda yoga teacher training in the Bahamas, Scainetti believed she could use her talent in jewelry design to foster profound social change. Upon the training's end, she was ordained the new spiritual name, Satya, meaning 'truth'. So inspired, she approached friend and co-worker Beth Torstrick Ward to co-found Satya Jewelry in 2002. Ever since, Scainetti has built a devoted global following as she creates beautiful, mean- ingful jewelry that resonates with each customer's own personal journey. Scainetti's ingenuity, background in social work, and passion for early childhood education sparked the creation of the Satya Foundation. The non-profit organization provides aid to children and families living in impoverished countries; offering hope, change and the opportunity to fulfill their destinies. Scainetti lives in New York with her twin sons.
B E T H T O R S T R I C K - W A R D, COO and co-founder of Satya Jewelry, helms the brand's product development and manages its private label partnerships. Beth was born in Louisville, Kentucky, a progressive southern oasis known for its indie rock and innovative arts scene. Drawn to creative pursuits, she developed her own accessory line at age 17. During college she traveled in the US selling her hand painted silk scarves and jewelry at retail and wholesale shows. After earning a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Louisville, she moved to New York City. After relocation, Beth sought balance between artistic expression and a love of travel. Her jobs as an international flight attendant and, later, a wholesale sales manager for a New York jewelry company took Beth around the globe. After taking a six-week sabbatical in Thailand, Beth was ready for a life change. When friend and former colleague, Satya, approached her with the idea of creating their own jewelry company, Beth was ready. Time spent in the serene Asian culture had opened her mind to life's possibilities. To initiate the business and her new path, Beth spent time at yoga and Buddhist retreats. She was exposed to teachings of compassion that continue to inform and inspire her both personally and professionally. The Satya Foundation, an extension of the brand, is an outlet for Beth's commitment to giving back. Beth is happily married and lives in Brooklyn Heights with her two children.
