Details

Poised on leafy branches, the quetzal bird has been revered in Guatemala since the days of the early Mayas. "The quetzal is my country's national symbol and its colours are amazing. My dream is to see one in real life! I designed these earrings so you can see how beautiful this bird is," says Zandra Lorena Sajbin. She crafts the sterling silver earrings by hand with embossed details, and the exotic beauty of dark green jade for the wings.
