Details:
The Star of David, known also as Magen David (Shield of David), is beautifully etched on Guatemalan jade in a cotton necklace crafted by hand. "Originally the intertwined triangles represented the connection between heaven and earth," explains artisan Jorge Lopez.

Please note: The etched image may fade somewhat over time, as a result of absorbing body oils and/or skincare products. Simply wash the pendant with soap and water and let it dry to refresh the design again.

Story behind the art:I'm Jorge Alfredo Lopez Garcia. I was born in the beautiful city of Antigua on October 23, 1963. When I was a boy, we lived in the Calle Ancha neighborhood near the Pensativo stadium. My parents weren't artisans, but they worked very hard so we would have the things we needed. I remember that my brothers and I loved to play soccer with our friends. Since we lived near the stadium, we spent most of our time playing there.

As a young man, I took a job in a typesetting workshop. I liked it a lot, but then a friend offered me the opportunity to learn how to carve stone. I loved it! I began to experiment with different materials and today I work in glass, marble, jade, wood and ceramic. I've been doing this since 1992, and I enjoy what I do very much.

My first jobs were logos commissioned by businesses. However I find greater satisfaction in creating designs of my own inspiration. It seems hard to believe, but something that began as mere curiosity has become a source of satisfaction, both for me and for others, as I like people to be happy when they acquire one of my designs.

I especially like to engrave Maya motifs and designs, promoting the culture of this great civilization of our ancestors. What I like best about my work is knowing that people from other places like what I do, and I can offer them a glimpse of the culture of Guatemala.

Among the things I'd like to achieve professionally, I hope to enlarge my workshop and buy better equipment to improve the quality of my work. In this way, I'd be able to sell more, give my family a better future and collaborate better as a member of my community.

In my free time, I enjoy sports. I currently practice track, and I also like to read.

Please know that I create my designs with great care and love. I hope you can feel my dedication when you see my works in your home, and that through them, you'll know my country a little better.
