Beautiful colorful bracelet
This was perfect for a birthday gift for a dear friend. WE live near the beach and the colors remind me of the ocean. It is perfect with a pair of shorts and to wear with a dress to dinner. Just lovely...
Gorgeous and unique
These took my breath away when I opened the package. They are so detailed and finely executed. I collect feather jewelry and these are like nothing Ive seen before. Would purchase again. Special.
Such great silver work
Its a pleasure to wear Novica jewelry. The workmanship is beyond compare. And very comfortable on the finger

About Handcrafted Jewelry
Men and women have adorned themselves with jewelry since long before the age of reason! Garlands of flowers, bracelets of woven grass, shells, and stone; such were the first decorations to beautify the human body. We may have been wearing jewelry as far back as 75,000 years ago - 30,000 years earlier than previously believed - according to a recent report by National Geographic News. Over the millennia, jewelry styles and materials have evolved in step with the advances of civilization. From the Stone Age to the Bronze Age, from the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution (and seemingly back again!), jewelry styles have transformed, modernized, and then often returned to their most basic forms and essential elements.
