Details

Zandra Lorena Sajbin designs a reversible pendant of extraordinary beauty in honor of Maya astronomy. She crafts the pendant by hand with sterling silver featuring the quetzal bird and a temple over the lilac jade side of the pendant. The black jade side features a crescent moon. Maya astronomers sought to predict eclipses, which they likened to the galaxy taking a breath and which influenced human conscience.

Lilac jade is a natural stone. Its color will vary due to its white, green, blue and rose veins.

"Great Anniversary Gift!"

I bought the eclipse pendant as an anniversary gift for my wife. We honeymooned in Mexico and visited many Mayan ruins. This beautiful pendant brings back all those memories. A great piece to add to her collection.

"Beautiful pendant"

This eclipse pendant is stunning that Friends want to steal it from me. I told them go to Novica and get one. I love artisans around the world and finding items that I cannot find in the United States.

"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.

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.
