When Novica contacted me and asked me if I would like to review one of their products, I jumped at the chance. If you haven't heard of Novica, you should know that Novica is a very special company. They work with National Geographic to give talented artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their artistic talents. They create a bridge between you the purchaser and the many talented artisans around the globe. Novica provides access to unique and hard to find items at great values. They have thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts, accessories, jewelry and home decor items on their website.
After enjoying every second of exploring their website, I chose a gorgeous vase created by an artist in Thailand. The ordering process was very easy and delivery was very quick (less than ten days) considering it was coming all the way from Thailand. Look at how beautiful the presentation is.
I was very excited when I got home and my package had arrived.
It was wrapped extremely well. Better than anything I have ever ordered before.
Here is my gorgeous vase. It is called "Elephant Ring" and it is a celadon ceramic vase.
This vase is not mass-produced, but rather a one of a kind masterpiece.
In fact, each item you buy from Novica comes with a story and message from the artist.
Isn't that incredibly special?
It looks just beautiful in my family room.
I love it and feel so blessed to have something so special in my home.
Novica is not limited to home decor. They have so much to choose from.
Whether it be a West African walking stick...
or a woman's hat
Each and every item is beautifully handmade and unique.
Novica also offers a home party division called NovicaLive where consultants have an opportunity to earn extra income while supporting artisans worldwide. If you'd like more information on becoming a consultant for NovicaLive, you can click here.
