Odette Sierra is from the beautiful Mexican state of Puebla. Her father Edgar Sierra first opened their workshop 30 years ago. Their town is renowned throughout Mexico for its carvings in onyx and marble. Submerged in this artistic heritage, the Sierras began crafting parquet tables in onyx and marble. During the history of their workshop they have come to perfect the fabrication of innumerable items, including chess sets, game sets, vases, sculptures, bathroom fixtures, and jewelry boxes.
The principal materials of the Sierra Family, onyx and marble, are mined in the Mexican states of Puebla and Oaxaca. A diamond disk is used to sculpt the stone, accompanied by large quantities of water. Once the desired shape is achieved the artisans finish the surface with emery board and a polisher.
The art of sculpting marble and onyx demands patience and virtue, both of which have been cultivated over time in the Sierra Family workshop.
When my receptionist told me there was a huge package outside at reception for me....I was confused...I wasn't expecting to receive my Mexican Chess Set in just 2 days! All the way from Mexico to Hong Kong! I am trully amazed by your customer service. I sent an email to them requesting for the package to be delivered before Valentine's...was a bit skeptical as Valentine's is just 3 days away. True to their word...i received my package on time! Everything was perfect. Each piece is exquisite and the careful packing is commendable. Thank you very much and I look forward to placing more orders with you. This is going to be the best valentine's day thank to the beautiful gift. I am sure my boyfriend will love it. Thank you!

I recently purchased the Chinese Checker set from the Sierra Family. It arrived yesterday wrapped like a gift with a hand written thank you from the artist. I really appreciated the personal touch and the set is magnificent! We have played at least 10 games already. The craftmanship is absolutely amazing.. the detail, the onyx and marble, the carefully drilled spaces all add to a display piece that will be admired by all who visit us. I also compliment Novica for their great service in keeping me informed about when my order shipped and how I could track it. This experience will have me returning for many future purchases!!
I am so pleased with the Marble 'Charging Bull' Statue. It takes me back to the time when I studied at the Universidad de Guadalajara. This statue has a special place in my heart. Thank you so much!
I bought the ""war of the roses"" chess set for my boyfriend, who absolutely loved it. It was beautifully crafted and every fine detail taken care of. I couldn't believe the quality of the work. It went down with such a blast with my boyfriend that I have actually purchased one for my brother, this time ""Check in Grey"". Perfect gift!
I ordered a Sierra Family chess set as a Christmas gift for my best friend, and it was absolutely gorgeous. It arrived in two days, and was also gift-wrapped, which was unexpected and a nice touch. The set is stunning, and will be treasured. Wonderful work.

I ordered the Dolphin Song windchime as a Christmas gift to my husband and I from our bird Seymore. Afterall she shares the patio too. It was so beautifully wrapped I could hardly wait to open it. I love the sound of the onyx tinkling together. This is my second one from the Sierra family. Absolutely beautiful work!
The classic black and white chess set that we ordered was gorgeous. The stark solidness of the black vs. translucency of the white was a glorious contrast. The set was also perfectly packed for shipping. Thanks and keep up the beautiful work!
I ordered an onyx wind chimes from Sierra Family. And It is quite lovely, from the sound to the quality of stone.
I would like to say thank you for the beautiful chess set I had ordered! I am amazed at how beautiful each piece is, and the obvious pride in which each was created. It is now a centrepiece in my flat, and since then, I have recommended discerning friends to this website. Kudos too to National Geographic and Novica for showcasing such talents, and bringing them together, and to us!

These wind chimes that I purchased were sent with such care. They were packaged with great effort and a gift for my mother-in-law turned out to be such a pleasant surprise to her. She couldn't stop telling me how much she loved them and I thank you for all the care you took in packaging and getting it to me all the way across the country. And!! It arrived safely too!!!
I bought an onyx chess set for my brother, who loves chess. He loved it! What a unique handcrafted gift. Thank you so much.
Dear Sierra Family, A few days ago my family received ""Glorious Battle"" and upon opening the carefully wrapped pieces we fell in love with the chess board. The colours of the marble are exquisite as is the work that went into creating this beautiful chess board. We have already enjoyed several matches and look forward to playing many more in the coming days, months, and years. Thank you.
I recently purchased the Chinese Checkers set from the Sierra Family as a gift for my husband for fathers day - my daughter selected the set because she liked the brightly colored marbles, and wanted a game to play with her dad. We just received it today. I was really impressed at how carefully the item was packaged. The set itself is just beautiful and so wonderfully made. It is very solid and I can see it lasting through generations. We are looking forward to many family games with this set. Thank you Sierra Family!
Our family has so much fun with the Marble Tic-tac-toe set, 'Rose on Black'. Thank you, Sierra family, for all the enjoyment your creation has provided!

I just received my large onyx lamp and it is beautiful. The light glows through the onyx and makes the whole room glow. Thank you very much!
I received the Rose Marble chess set today. Just Beautiful!!
I purchased the lamp ""Puebla Moon"" both for it's own beauty but also to subtly illuminate a Georgia O'Keefe print on my mantle. Long story short, it worked, they compliment each other beautifully. I stepped down to a 15w bulb which magnifies the natural beauty of the onyx without being too bright. Beautiful as a lamp and a piece of art.
