Jade pendant necklace, 'No'j Medallion' (Guatemala)

Representing the brain and human intellect, the Mayan glyph for the woodpecker, N'oj, 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 "N'oj" inscribed on the reverse side.
