Novica.com

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Due to a random Google search (I don't even recall what I was searching for at the time), I had the good fortune of stumbling upon Novica.com.  Have you been to this site?  National Geographic has put together this shopping site of artisan-made goods from all over the world.  Novica has a very well-rounded selection of handmade jewelry, art, furniture and textiles -  in every price range.

The design on these rattan baskets is created with hand-applied beads.


Heroic Elephants accent table from West Africa




Wool Geometric throws are from Andes artisans


Glass jewelry box with handpainted butterflies


Leather framed mirror from Peru.  Rope details make it even more unique!


Red Lightning wool rug from Mexico.





Elephant covered jar and elephant soapstone vase.

Also great to know, National Geographic/Novica reinvests profits from Novica into education for Artists!

Busy week ahead AND computer behaving badly -Google Chrome crashed : (    Hope you're off to a smoother start than I am!
