Alluring, exotic jade excites the mind, conjuring images of some undiscovered treasure lying deep inside the jungle, waiting to be found. Jade in a light green color is at the heart of Guatemalan artisan Estuardo Jimenez's design of this spectacular sterling silver pendant necklace. Estuardo comments, "Since I was young I liked to work with my uncles and other artisans in the workshop, watching the way they handled jade stones and silver until they finished a piece. As a child, I was curious to learn and do as the others, ‘working’ on my own pieces. Maybe my jewelry wasn’t the prettiest, but my parents motivated me and applauded my efforts." Now an adult, Estuardo conceives of and hand-crafts the necklace which features five cabochon bezel-set jade stones in irregular geometric shapes. A sterling silver bar chain which closes with a toggle clasp hosts the jade stone pendant. With its modern flair, this lustrous necklace works just as well for the office as for a special night out.
