Representing Merkaba, a vehicle of divine light, sterling silver is handcrafted into the geometric pendant of this necklace. Pablo Roquel, enjoying the process of creating new designs, creates the necklace, adding an orb of natural Guatemalan jade that rests within the hollow pendant. The necklace adorns the wearer on black leather cord.
Pablo works with jade and silver to create beautiful pieces of jewelry. He feels inspired by the history of jade in Central America with its importance dating back to Mayan times. He teaches anyone in his community interested in his techniques and how to work with the local jade stones.
In 1998, the government held a competition where several artisans were invited to showcase their work, Pablo was awarded first place for his jewelry.
Pablo has been able to successfully grow his workshop and now creates jobs in his community to keep up with the demand of his products.
Pablo has three children and two of them are young enough to still need his support.
