Light green jade dewdrops are tantalizing in florid earrings by Zandra Lorena Sajbin. The earrings are crafted by hand of sterling silver featuring luminous semicircle petals to frame the beauty of this exquisite gem. Called Ya'ax Chich by the ancient Maya, jade was regarded as a sacred symbol of life, fertility and power.
.925 Sterling silver.
A jewelry pouch inspired by the unique culture of Guatemala is included with these earrings.
Each product comes with a special NOVICA booklet that helps to bring artisans and patrons closer together with a small bit of information about the creator of each piece and the inspiration behind the item.
Zandra Lorena Sajbin (left), the artisan behind NOVICA Jade and .925 Sterling Silver Flower Dangle Earrings, 'Blossoming Green Dew', is the creator of many other unique, handcrafted jewelry items sold by NOVICA. Zandra Lorena Sajbin says, "The first thing I ever made on my own was a pair of silver earrings. My husband taught me so I could help him. I remember watching him work on his own 'til all hours of the night and I really wanted to learn how to craft jewelry. Finally the day came when he asked me to help him and that's how I started. As I saw the jewelry I had been crafting and saw how beautiful it was I felt happy -- everyone kept saying how much they liked what I had made! Offering my art through Novica is another dream come true. I am honored to see people beyond Guatemala's borders wear my designs. Each of them bears my best wishes."
NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, works together with talented artisan designers around the world to produce stunning, keepsake treasures. Our mantra is to spread global happiness, so rest assured - we’ll do everything we possibly can to ensure you’re a happy customer.
We CONNECT artisans to a global marketplace of socially conscious customers:
Artisans from around the world (many living in rural communities) don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale. Our teams of local art experts based in every region, provide artisans with all the backup they need. Zandra Lorena Sajbin (pictured above), the artisan behind this and many other special pieces, works with the NOVICA regional office in Central America.
We EMPOWER artisans to build a sustainable business from their craft:
We operate a completely transparent system where artisans have all the control. They are free to raise or lower their own prices, can withdraw their products at any time, and can even put their items on sale.
We PRESERVE ancient artistic traditions for future generations to enjoy:
Local sourcing teams in every region are tasked with finding the most unique and precious art traditions around. We look for originality, quality of workmanship, and pieces we know our customers will love. In the past, artists have been forced to give up their art in favor of a more lucrative career. NOVICA allows them to carry on with their craft, as there is now a platform from which they can operate a sustainable creative business.
I love these earrings. These are perfectly sized, and they dangle just the right amount (I'm a nurse, so I don't want anything *too* dangly when I'm working.) I love the craftsmanship and attention to detail. The jade is slightly lighter in color than I imagined it would be when purchasing, but I actually prefer it as it adds a subtle delicacy. The clasp on the earring ensure security -- I never have to worry about losing one. I highly recommend this jewelry!
I really love these earrings!!! They are pretty true to the picture and description. They were a little smaller than I anticipated but I think I just read the measurements wrong. Gorgeous color.
Love these earrings; the quality is spectacular and the craftsmanship is unique. Highly recommend.
These earrings are very pretty. Unfortunately the ear wire is very thick! I could not wear them without discomfort. I kept them and replaced the ear wire with a thinner ear wire.
Christmas gift for a girl named "Jade." They were well received
Very nice pair of earrings. Not damaged during shipping. Lovely size and color stone
Beautifully crafted. Pale green color of the stone is gorgeous. Gift for my mother and she loves them!
They are beautiful and just the right size. I was very happy with color and comfort.
