Novica - Buy handcrafted artisan products online from around the world

I recently discovered an artisan community named Novica and I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to share this information you as well as host my first giveaway!  What is Novica you say?  Novica is an extremely unique concept that connects worldwide artisans with everyday consumers via the internet.  Working with National Geographic, Novica allows us to see available products from artisans from all over the world while sharing the artisan’s personal biography.  This allows every consumer to have a personal connection with the products they are buying.  No longer is the item coming from an online purchase, it’s coming from Oscar Figueroa Escorcia a silversmith from Taxco, Mexico.

Novica offers a plethora of available items but the area that really catches my attention is the jewelry.  I’m a lover of beautiful things and I’m extremely impressed with the options available for purchase.  Here are some of my favorite offerings from Novica;  Angel Wing silver necklace from Oscar Figueroa Escorcia, Aventurine and Amethyst dangle earrings ‘Lianas’ from Nareerat, Ebony cocktail ring, ‘Earth’s Wisdom’ from Caine, Marcasite and Garnet button earrings, ‘Little Owl’ from Narinee and Amber dangle earrings, ‘Honey Drops’ from Neeru Goel.

Novica also offers the option to set up a microloan for an artisan of your choice.  There are tons of artisans in need of some financial assistance in order to purchase new supplies. Once the artisan creates their products, the consumer is repaid the amount they loaned.  Talk about making a difference in someone’s wellbeing!  I really think this is one of the coolest things about Novica.
