Have you ever heard of Novica? When I was chosen to do this review I was ecstatic as Novica is such a neat site with so many handmade items from all around the world that it is like taking a trip! Novica is associated with National Geographic so you know it has to be an awesome and interesting assortment of goodies to go shopping!  I had the option of either keeping a GC just for myself or splitting it for a review. I love you all so much, a GC it is. Someone will win a Giftcode of $37.50 to spend on something you love from Novica.  I happened to choose this beautiful hand beaded bracelet above and if I had it, I would spend a lot of moula on Novica’s site on Jewelry alone!

I love wearing my Bracelet and had gotten many compliments on it already. So much fun and nice to be complimented all the time!  This bracelet is called “Bangkok Lotus” and is made of Labradite and Tourmaline.  What is really cool is that you get the artists name and a nice note from the artist(s) of your purchase and also a nice picture and that is a wonderful touch and certainly helps when you are conversing about your piece. It is impressive to know the artists name and where the items are made. Novica has made this shopping experience fun and educational. It would be fun to share this with the kids as a teaching tool as well.

I am so happy with my bracelet, worn above. There are several other color choices and not as wide as well if you look up the artist by name and see her work, Chuleekorn.

Besides Jewelry, you will find a whole world of handmade and the unusual to the beautiful items. I spent so much time searching this site trying how to figure out what I wanted to get!

How about getting a handmade Alpaca Poncho, so soft and lovely.

Or perhaps a beautiful Handcrafted Folk Art Mirror?

Whimsical for a childs room or anywhere else where it can be noticed.  All these lovely things from Novica.com are awesome. I think I have found a new site to be addicted to and I am sure to hit my Pinterest pages up with these wonderful items.

Lastly, I would be amiss if I did not share the gorgeous handmade box used to ship my bracelet in. I believe it is also made with recycled paper, but it adds to the uniqueness of Novica! This leaf below was incorporated into the top of the box, making it a piece of art itself!

I cannot wait to see who wins and what they decide to purchase with their gift card!  I tell you, it was real hard to stay in budget for me. Good Luck everyone. You are gonna love this company!

    I adore Novica – and have SO many favorites there (currently 299 items on my Wish List – and I haven’t updated it in quite a while!)

    Armed with a very generous $37.50 GC – I would it would be a real challenge deciding what to buy. Two items (creations!) that immediately come to mind (both are made by artist/designers from Thailand) are the lovely (preserved REAL flower: Natural orchid gold-plated flower necklace, “Purple Perfection” by Danai and the graceful and alluring statuette, “Take My Hand” (or “Gracious” which is out of stock) by Ning Charoensri also of Thailand..
