"I finally found it!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have been looking for a ring like this for the past five years. I was looking for one with an onyx stone. I had no idea there was a black jade stone but it’s perfect. I like the setting, I wanted one that wasn’t too busy. The size of the ring surprised me, it is a lot larger than I expected. That’s not meant to be a complaint, I’m very happy with this ring.

"Matches the necklace"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

And both are gorgeous. I took two hearts out to fit my daughter. Easy to size with pliers, so I can add one back as she grows. Ill just keep them in the cute little pouch. The jewelry is high quality and professional. I have several more pieces on their way from different sets and I do not regret a thing.

"I wish I could post a picture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is darker than in the photo, but matches the set. I bought these for my young daughter so that she could have her own set and it makes her look like a Mayan princess. I took a few links out so it would fit well around her little neck and I will put them back in as she grows. Same goes for the bracelet. We have small necks and wrists so I have to take a link out for bracelets and two for necklaces for myself. Anyway, this is the cutest set. Its classic and a rich jaguar green, but also very cute and appropriate, in my opinion, for any age. I love the pieces I have bought from Zandra. This woman makes excellent quality and beautiful styles. I have bought several pieces and I love the ones I have and cant wait to receive the rest. My grandmother would be have been starry eyed seeing my baby in her very own Mayan jade in her own size.

"Perfect match"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I got this to go with the set. So far I have received these and the bracelet and the stones match as does the excellent quality. Zandra does very good work and I have ordered several pieces from her shop. I very much look forward to receiving everything (my fault for ordering separately) but it is worth the wait. Her designs are beautiful and the finish is very professional.

This is an extremely beautiful pendant. I love how it can be light or dark green. The silver on both sides is also very beautiful. I especially love the Quetzal.

"Smaller than I expected"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Really thought this would be larger - I do check the measurements, but sometimes a tad difficult to get a true perspective - but still a lovely pendant, that I will enjoy. I will likely combine with other smaller pendants to create a grouping

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.
