Details

Resplendent in sterling silver, the quetzal bird was believed to be the god of air by the ancient Maya. Today it is Guatemala's national symbol. Classed as a near-threatened species, a quetzal hides behind droplets of dark green jade. Zandra Lorena Sajbin handcrafts her original earrings in honor of ancient traditions.
