Today we are honored to introduce you to Trisha from Sasha Gems.
Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.
Trisha Mitra-Nedic founded Sasha Gems in 2009, with the dream of creating luxury adornments that hold special meaning and tell a story through each piece. “Sasha”, as her family nicknamed her, spent a lot of time as a child with her grandmother, always watching her create beautiful things with her hands, whether she was designing dresses, quilting, or decorating cakes. Her grandmother’s creativity eventually inspired Trisha to create Sasha Gems.
We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?
I’m in a relentless pursuit to do what I love, and find happiness in even the smallest day to day tasks. From a young age, I had dreams of attending schools such as Berkeley and the London School of Economics. With hard work, and taking one step at a time I fulfilled those dreams. Years later, I wanted to hone in on my creative skills and decided to take a jewelry making class. From that first day of making my first bracelet, I knew I had found something I loved to do and started to dream about having my own business. After a dozen jewelry classes later, not only do I enjoy the creative process of designing jewelry, I love knowing that women wear these pieces that hold special meaning.
Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly believe that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?
I find beauty and inspiration from weddings. I love attending weddings, and experiencing all the different types of cultural traditions, all the planning and meticulous detail involved to make the joyous day beautiful, and all the love that emanates from the bride, groom and their families.
On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?
Whenever it’s a dreary day, I seek comfort. I could talk to my college best friends for hours and hours and talk about our hopes and dreams that we might still have. Some hot chocolate and rummaging through old photos also works on a dreary day.
What are you most grateful for?
I’ve been blessed with so many things in life, a good job, health, friends, but the most precious gift is being surrounded by my husband and family.
