Novica Review

I was recently asked to do a review for Novica, a division of National Geographic.  They feature artists from all over the world.  As I was looking at the website, I did find a lot of strange is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, but as I kept looking I discovered a lot cool, neat art.  They have rugs, jewelry, furniture, home decor, art, tables, musical instruments, masks, mirrors, vases, sculptures etc.  As per their website "NOVICA unites you with more than 2,000 extraordinary master artists around the world. Read about their lives, explore their fascinating cultures, and select from more than 30,000 handcrafted works of art."  Their website is easy to navigate.  Everything was broken down into catagories...Jewelry was broken down into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.  It was easy to order my purchase, the only problem I had was deciding what to get

They offered to give me a gift certificate, so I decided to treat myself to a couple of cute necklaces.  The artist who designed these was from Thailand.  I was impressed by how quickly the jewelry was shipped and the cute little box that they came in.  There was even a card about the artist and what inspired the artist when they designed the jewelry, tucked inside the box.

These ain't your momma's pearls!

I also chose this pendant as well:

Aren't they both pretty?

Novica has many options to chose, from Corporate Gifts, to Eco Friendly Gifts and so many more.
