It's Giveaway Time!

Are you ready? It's giveaway time! You could win a $75 gift card to NOVICA, one of the leading fair trade artisan websites.

Novica works with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. NOVICA features thousands of top fair trade accessories, jewelry and home decor items on their website.

The folks at NOVICA contacted me with an opportunity to learn more about their organization and mission, and in the process, allowed me to choose a gift from their collection of arts and crafts. I opted for this lovely ring, made by an artist named Buana in Bali-Java.



I love the silver filligree work and the garnet in the center. (Please excuse my tired hands - clearly I do not have a future as a hand model.) The ring arrived in a lovely jewelry box and included information on the artist and the region of Bali-Java where it's made.

How to Enter
If you would like to enter for a chance to win an electronic gift card from NOVICA, leave a comment on my blog. If you don't have a blog yourself, be sure to include your email address (feel free to email it to me directly if you'd rather not leave it in the comments section).

If you blog about this offer on your site in additon to leaving a comment, your name will be entered twice in the drawing.

The deadline to enter is Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. (Eastern time) I will announce the winner later that week.

Good luck!

Thanks for the chance. I ordered a magazine rack from Novica a few months ago and loved it. They offer so many beautiful handmade pieces. Thanks again!
