Historically worn to attract love, jade was regarded as a sacred stone by the ancient Maya. Zandra Lorena Sajbin carves green jade into voluptuous hearts for this elegant bracelet. She crafts the design by hand with sterling silver.
.925 Sterling silver
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.
I got this for my niece whom doesn?t wear jewelry...but I thought that a graduation present saying, ?love concedes to all in time? would be a beautiful sentiment. It?s more gorgeous than my expectations.

"My wife is going to love this!"
I just finished wrapping this beautiful necklace for Christmas morning. I ordered it on the 15th so I was a little worried it might not make it by Christmas morning even though I chose the guaranteed shipping. I was promised delivery by the 24th, which is Monday, so I tried to relax. I was so surprised to receive a notification today (Saturday the 21st) that it had been delivered to my home! Wow! It's actually taken longer and shipping was more expensive for me to get items shipped from nearby states here in the US than it did to get this all the way from Central America! Outstanding! The bracelet is even more beautiful up close than in the photograph. I am 100% happy with the quality of the piece, and I can only say that Mrs. Zandra Lorena Sajbin KNOWS HER ART. Amazing work. I can only say that I pity her husband because I'm sure he's at a loss to find gifts for her that don't appear "ho-hum" beside the things she makes. My best wishes to their prosperity and I'll be back. :)
