Details

This necklace of cosmic beauty is the original design of Zandra Lorena Sajbin. She selects a very light shade of jade, known in Guatemala as verde manzano or "apple green." The ancient Maya referred to jade as Ya'ax Chich, and they regarded it as a sacred symbol of life, fertility and power. Sajbin crafts the sterling silver pendant necklace by hand with experienced artistry.

"GORGEOUS BRACELET"

THE BRACELET IS PRETTY IN THE PICTURE BUT STUNNING ON MY WRIST WHEN I AM WEARING IT! . I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE ONE COMMENT REGARDING THE TOGGLE. I HAD WORN IT TO BED AND REALIZED A FEW DAYS LATER THAT THE BRACELET WAS NO LONGER ON MY WRIST. I PANICKED AND TRIED TO THINK OF ALL THE PLACES THAT I HAD BEEN IN THOSE COUPLE OF DAYS. LONG STORY SHORT, BEFORE I SET OUT ON THE PURSUIT TO FIND MY BRACELET, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF JUST CHECK THE BED, WHAT ARE THE ODDS. TO MY DELIGHT, THE ODDS WERE IN MY FAVOR THAT DAY BECAUSE THERE SHE WAS.
