Im so pleased with my purchase. The jade beads are a beautiful shade of green and perfectly polished as shown online. My package arrived in excellent condition and much earlier than expected.

"Simply Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This unique jade ring is simply beautiful, exactly as pictured. Zandras craftsmanship is exceptional and I love it! It is also worth noting that I received my little package all the way from Guatemala in just 5 days with standard shipping (including the weekend AND with intercept to reroute to another shipping address that was so graciously taken care of by the NOVICA team)! I couldnt believe it. This business is truly competent and caring. Also, the details of the package were the cutest, but I dont want to give away all the surprises ;) Any purchase from NOVICA supports and empowers artists and is highly recommended 3 Thank you!!!

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.
