Circles of jade in light green, dark green, black and lilac reveal square facets in low relief. By Zandra Lorena Sajbin, this enchanting bracelet showcases the gems in sterling silver settings. To the ancient Maya, ya'ax chich (jade) was a sacred symbol of life, fertility and power and was reserved for the aristocracy.
Lilac jade is a natural stone. Its color will vary due to its white, green, blue and rose veins.
From a humble artist to a respected member of her community, Zandra captures the spirit of the Women's Empowerment badge. "After my husband died in 2017, I knew I would need to provide for my three children. I've made their education my top priority and plan to send each of them to university. I have also welcomed helpers into my workshop, and support with fair wages," she says.
Zandra started off as a humble artisan with a strong passion. Since her start with NOVICA, she has been able to grow her workshop and achieve more than she thought possible. She is able to support her children, create jobs in her community, and has become one of the most respected artisans in her city.
