Novica Review & Giveaway

Share

There is a nation of artists throughout the world. village of carvers in Bali;
a family of ceramists in Brazil who have handed down their craft
from generation to generation;
a farmer in the Andes who hand-weaves alpaca sweaters.

It is a community of artists who have been isolated
for centuries by distance, time, and geography --
isolated from the very community of collectors seeking
their unique, inspired, and undiscovered arts and crafts.

Now, finally, there is a bridge connecting our separate
communities into one worldwide nation --
this is The NOVICA Nation.

A nation of people inspired by the arts and
empowered by the Internet.

Novica offers everything from Sterling Silver Jewelry to Earrings to necklaces, unique gifts, and much more!

I received these to review:

Sterling silver half hoop earrings, 'Moon in the Forest'



Round as the full moon, silver hoops reveal the intricate elegance of leaves and tendrils. Wadarat Supasirisuk creates the motifs in low relief, bringing a new look to a classic style.

.925 rating silver.

Made by:
Wadarat Supasirisuk





"Sawadee kha! My name is Wadarat Supasirisuk and I was born on April 19, 1941 in the southern province of Nakorn Sri Thamarat. I am married and we have two children. After graduating from university, I had the opportunity to work in a company that manufactured jewelry. I chose that company because not only did the products interest me, but also because I could tell there was a growing demand for Thai jewelry.

I began to save my earnings and eventually opened my own workshop. I believe that opportunities are everywhere, that is, for those who can anticipate and make the risky decision to invest time and money.

I purchased some materials and started marketing the products myself. It was then that I traveled abroad, to Europe and Australia. When I was in Bangkok I became aware of the potential for silver jewelry. I looked at the northern region of Chiang Mai and decided to expand my scope of products.

Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets – I design all these products myself, sometimes adapting patterns I see in magazines and catalogues, sometimes simply through asking clients and professionals about the current trends. However, most of the times my clients already have in mind what it is they want and just ask me to actually make it.

My products are nice and of good quality. I feel confident that, regardless where you are from, you will like them."

What I like about these earrings and Novica:
1. I love the whole concept of this company!
2. I really enjoyed reading and seeing a picture of the woman who created earrings.
3. My experience w/ this company was unique!
4. Came w/ a handwritten postcard from Thailand thanking me for my purchase written in their language and English. Pretty cool!
5. Even the jewelry box was cool in that it is made from Sea Paper, a handmade mulberry bark paper that has been made in Thailand for over 700 years.
6. Quick shipping.
7. These Sterling Silver earrings were very pretty and delicate.

What I didn't like:
1. Nothing!
