Olive Live: An Interview with Satya Scainetti, Founder of Satya Jewelry

It’s no secret that I love yoga. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered Satya Jewelry, a jewelry line that incorporates semi-precious stones and yoga-inspired sacred symbols with messages of empowerment. Satya Jewelry is handcrafted with the modern, fearless woman in mind. I like to think that I fit into that group!
