Details

Zandra Lorena Sajbin evokes Maya glory with the exquisite design of this necklace. Working with sterling silver, she crafts seven light green jade pendants. Ya'ax Chich in Maya, jade was regarded as a sacred symbol of life, fertility and power. Each gem on this necklace sits on delicately detailed settings featuring the quetzal bird, national emblem of Guatemala, and Maya characters holding a corn cob, regarded as sacred. Two of the pendants are adorned with the jaguar temple at Tikal flanked by two faces.

Ring is as described, but imagine stone colors are varied. It s a lightweight ring but not cheap. Nice for daily wear

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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 them 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.

Zandra Lorena Sajbin has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1050 and the most recent for $3500. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of more silver, jade and tools so she can develop her new designs.

Zandra lost her husband in 2017 and she is now the sole provider for her three children, Fabricio, Alejandro and Dulce. Through her jade jewelry art, she is able to support her children and increase their livelihood.

Zandra financially supports her three children's education and plans to send the three of them to university as well.

This artist positively impacts their community through job creation and provides jobs for 2 or more people.
