Details

"I love this design if I may say so myself!" admits Guatemala's Zandra Lorena Sajbin. "I wanted to combine several geometric shapes." The original design of this necklace seems to perpetuate jade's energy, which the ancient Maya believed to most powerful. They called it ya'ax chich, and believed it to be a sacred stone that symbolized life. The sterling silver necklace is crafted by hand with dark green jade.

"Like moon drip"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is so pretty. It just gives a feeling of movement, like youre squeezing out the juice from the moon and it drips into your heart. Great shape combinations and the quality is on par with the rest of her designs. I have a small neck, so I took out a link on each side. It looks great and feels like royalty. Good buy and pairs well will round or pointy earrings.

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.
