His income has increased more than three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his products to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.

"Gorgeous jewelry box! "Happy", indeed!"

I know I wrote a "Testimonial" for this years ago, but it must have gotten lost. This jewelry box looks stunning on my antique dresser. My husband picked it out for me as a Valentine's Day or Birthday Gift (don't recall which now). Gorgeous details - excellent craftsmanship.

"Wonderful jewelry box"

This is the perfect jewelry box to sit on the vanity in our bathroom. It is beautifully carved and all the small drawers are perfect for my rings and earrings. Really wonderful craftsmanship.
