When I look around the mansion and in my closet I smile. Why? Because I’ve surrounded myself with artwork, home decor, clothes and accessories that reflect WHO I AM and where I’ve been. I tend to be rather whimsical in the way that I decorate and my clothing style is…well, eclectic to say the least. I tend to go from classic to glam in 5 seconds flat – but always with a sense of elegance and style that are UNIQUELY my own.
It is SO important to find those things that are utterly YOU and surround (and adorn) yourself with them. From my scent (Costes) to my jewelry (a blend of silver and gold), I KNOW who I am and I wear it. I LOVE unusual and artisan pieces and have bought some beautiful (yet not expensive) pieces of handmade jewelry from NOVICA.
Since I’ve bought MANY pairs of earrings and bracelets from them in the past, it was a no-brainer when they asked if I’d like to review their site. The selection of sterling silver jewelry that NOVICA offers ranges from traditional to very modern. The shopping EXPERIENCE is an unusual one, because not only do you get to see the wonderful handwork in vivid photographs, but you get to learn about the artist who created the piece that you’re about to purchase.
“We want you to know about who you’re buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.”
I think that this is one of the reasons that I like purchasing my jewelry from NOVICA. .With over 30,000 handcrafted works of art, I know that I am supporting the artists themselves and that what I buy will be a handmade, unique piece of art.
The ordering process is VERY easy and NOVICA accepts all major credit cards as well as PayPal and Amazon.com payment. I was also very happy to see that my purchases arrived much more quickly than I had anticipated (since what I purchased came from Thailand).
Check out the beautiful earrings, ring and cuff that I purchases (all for around $100). If you’ll be at EVO or BlogHer this year, come see them up close (the cuff is quickly becoming one of my signature pieces along with my collection of silver bracelets that I’m always wearing.

Thank you to NOVICA for providing us with a gift certificate so that I could purchase and review their site. We were in no way compensated and all opinions are strictly our own.
