Details

Zandra Lorena Sajbin creates a pendant of extraordinary beauty in honor of Maya astronomy. She crafts it by hand of sterling silver. A quetzal bird and a temple appear on one side, superimposed on a disk of lilac jade. The other side is dark green jade with a polished 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.

I absolutely adore this necklace I bought earrings that kind of match it. I like the fact that you can reverse it where it two different ways. It is very well crafted and fits perfectly around my neck just the right legs. Thank you for what you do.

These are beautifully crafted and feature a stone in a gentle pale green. They will look great with many outfits, especially floral prints. I really appreciate the kidney hook that will keep them from falling out of my ear.

I gave this to my daughter for her birthday; she loves it; loves green, loves jade. And in this time of being on camera so much, it makes her outfits look great on zoom, team, etc. What a beautiful necklace!
