Jade pendant necklace, 'B'atz Medallion' (Guatemala)

Representing the passage of time and the evolution of human life, the Mayan glyph for the monkey, B'atz, is etched by hand into a medallion of dark green Guatemalan jade. Zandra Lorena Sajbin designs this stunning pendant necklace, inspired by the beauty of jade and the significance of pre-Hispanic glyphs. The pendant centers a length of adjustable cotton cord, and features the Nahual name "B'atz" inscribed on the reverse side.
