Details

Zandra Lorena Sajbin designs a 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 dark green jade side of the pendant. The black jade side features a smooth crescent moon. Maya astronomers sought to predict eclipses, which they likened to the galaxy taking a breath and which influenced the human conscience.

"LUMINOUS AND GRACEFUL"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This necklace is very comforting to wear. It has a rich, deep hue. The silver is delicately cut into an exquisite design. The circular disc has an eternal quality to it. The silver extending over the disc blends the two in a harmonious, unique way.

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.
