We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.
I recently received two beautiful Novica items, one from Peru, and one from Mexico. From Mexico I got the Blown glass planters crafted by Javier Gutiérrez and Efrén Canteras. Since it's too cold to put anything out on my balcony right now, I used the large planter as a vase, and the second as a planter for a house plant. I think they are really beautiful.
There are so many goodies at Novica! It also always feels good buying from an artisan whose story is told along with the product.
Here are some of my Novica favorites. The site is brimming with a large selection of silver chandelier earrings, lush wraps and ruanas from peru, and some really special and unique home decor items.
Balinese silversmith Kenari fashioned these gorgeous silver earrings. See them here.
This looks so soft and warm and comfortable, I would probably end up living in this wrap by Peruvian artist Alfredo Falcon. See it here.
