Central to the beliefs of the Incas was the concept of the sun as a god, often represented as a circle with a human face and rays. Peruvian artisan Dina is inspired by this image as she designs the hand painted ceramic sun which hangs from this beaded pendant necklace. Handmade ceramic beads in a variety of earth tones along with green glass beads are strung together to form the necklace which closes securely with a high polish sterling silver fold-over clasp.

Chandler, Arizona

Upon arrival, I found that one of the small beads on the necklace had broken. I contacted Novica's customer service who resolved the issue quickly. The necklace was replaced and shipped with a large layer of foam for additional padding. The necklace and earrings are beautiful. Thanks!


Grey Forest, TX USA

Okay, just because I work for NOVICA does not mean I am a shill! Naturally I love our artisans' unique products; who wouldn't? But the two necklaces I just purchased from Dina's collection are simply gorgeous--perfect in every way. Thank you!

Dear Dina, Yesterday your lovely necklace arrived. My daughter was delighted with your original work. And, music from the Andes provided a perfect backdrop for the giving of a gift. Thank You Suzanne Bar-Tal
