NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, works together with talented artisan designers around the world to produce stunning, keepsake treasures. Our mantra is to spread global happiness, so rest assured - we’ll do everything we possibly can to ensure you’re a happy customer.
We CONNECT artisans to a global marketplace of socially conscious customers:
Artisans from around the world (many living in rural communities) don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale. Our teams of local art experts based in every region, provide artisans with all the backup they need. Narayani (pictured above), the artisan behind this and many other special pieces, works with the NOVICA regional office in India.
We EMPOWER artisans to build a sustainable business from their craft:
We operate a completely transparent system where artisans have all the control. They are free to raise or lower their own prices, can withdraw their products at any time, and can even put their items on sale.
We PRESERVE ancient artistic traditions for future generations to enjoy:
Local sourcing teams in every region are tasked with finding the most unique and precious art traditions around. We look for originality, quality of workmanship, and pieces we know our customers will love. In the past, artists have been forced to give up their art in favor of a more lucrative career. NOVICA allows them to carry on with their craft, as there is now a platform from which they can operate a sustainable creative business.
Stones are a consistent color with the saddle matrix showing. Silver is a beautiful choice of design with the accents of the spiral giving it a interesting appearance.
This is a very classy looking necklace. The lapis is a beautiful, deep blue and the silver accents are lovely. It came in a silk covered box that is quite nice on its own. All in all, NOVICA did a great job. I love it!
It is gorgeous and I love that the artisan who made it was paid a fair wage.
Wow! Very beautiful!
