"Beautiful gift for my best friend."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This ring is so simple and beautiful. I've been to Guatemala 3 times now and everytime I'm there I fall in love with the jewlery in the markets. I wanted to find a way to continue shopping in Guatemala while at home and Novica gave me that! This artist did an amazing job, this ring is in perfect condition and it's a beautiful stone. It's perfect for a gift, because it comes with a great story. I'm happy to support artisans in the country I love because they are truly talented and the world needs to know. I look forward to shopping more with this artist, this is my second ring I've bought from her and they're both beautiful.

This ring is simply beautiful. The sizing is perfect. The stone looks almost black but the green shines through in the light. I?m very happy with my purchase and will surely be a lifelong Novica shopper. The mission speaks to me and I reap the benefits for myself and in gifts to others!

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.
