I ordered this necklace for my daughter in law. She did pick it out herself and loves the bright colors. I already knew this was high quality as I made a purchase for myself from the same artisan. Buying special gifts from Novica is so easy. Many times I let her pick out what she wants and then the gift is sent to her already wrapped. Shipping rates are lower than other Fair Trade sources.
Really loved the quality and beauty of the owl necklace. I have photographed owls that are a pair and they looked so similar to the artist's carvings. This special owl romance necklace is a reminder of my parents who appreciated seeing the owls on our farm.
I am wearing this beautiful treasure for only the second time. Today I have already received two compliments and inquiries as to where I got it. Of course, I tell them about Novica and their relationship with National Geographic. On a recent trip to South Africa, I was honored to be able to ride on Dharma, the elephant! She was glorious! She glided around the rink. It is not a bumpy ride at all. I want to ride one again on my next visit, if I can! Such beautiful creatures. How the artisan captured the beauty in the unique wood. I love this necklace. It will remain a favorite. Thank you, Novica.
