NOVICA. The World is Your Market.

Novica offers some wonderful selections from artists in different regions of the world.  You can find a large variety of  handmade jewelry. From beautiful turquoise necklaces created in Mexico to amber studded earrings artfully made in India. They have some really gorgeous pieces that would make great Mother's Day gifts.  They also have some beautiful home decor. Things like photo frames, vases, and other unique gifts and collectible pieces to fit any one's style or personality.  

Since Novica allowed me the opportunity to review one of their products I decided to do a search for elephants on their site. My mother collects elephants and I was hoping to find her something that she would love. Guess what I did! After looking through all the creations I found this Ceramic Teapot, Elephant Green Tea.
With all the elephant figurines and trinkets my mom has I knew this one would be a unique piece to her collection. This lovely piece of art was handcrafted by artist Putu Oka Mahendra in Bali. It is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and lead and toxin free, but I really think my mom is just going to display it somewhere for all to see.

I was very impressed at how quickly I received this item from Novica, it was packaged with great care. When I received my package it was dented ( most likely done while in the shipping process ) and I feared the worse. I was pleasantly surprised to find my tea pot was completely protected and safe. I also received an artisan story card with a beautiful picture of Bali on it and thoughtfully signed.

All in all I think Novica is a great place to purchase something different. If you are interested in getting something for mom but still not sure what check out the suggestions for Gifts for Mom at Novica.
