Zandra's story

Zandra is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in jade jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver. Zandra has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

Zandra 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 felt happy as I saw the jewelry I had crafted and how beautiful it was.

"I thank you for the support you have always given me. It has been very important in improving my techniques, creating new designs and seeing my dreams come true. Both I and my children are grateful to all of you. May your lives be filled with many blessings."
