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.
