"I have more patience for art than for logic!"
"In 1980 I left behind a career as an accountant and I dove into the artistic universe. I began as an artisan's assistant and a sculptor, and gradually I became fascinated with gems and crystals. Soon after, I was exhibiting my work at local art fairs and markets.
"Despite the fact my academic formation revolved around sitting behind a desk, now I can tell you I could never go back to a technical or bureaucratic job – I have more patience for art than for logic!
"Nowadays I travel throughout Brazil in search of crystals from Bahia, emeralds from Minas Gerais, agates from Rio Grande do Sul, and many other naturally occurring wonders. I continuously learn new techniques and craft different products. I realize I have experienced a great personal transformation. Although many times difficult, I have learned that the path of an artisan is a path without return in which a person experiences beauty to the maximum, as well as moments of singular freedom.
"I know the Internet has a great potential, but I must admit I don't know much about computers – it's synonymous to a way of life I long left behind. I leave that to my children - they can take care of it for me. To me, Novica means an excellent opportunity for people to get to know the extraordinary work people all over the world are capable of making. It is an excellent way for an artisan to exhibit his work without the confinement of borders."

Hi Guena I had so much fun re-arranging all my new items from NOVICA artisans today. I had to make way for the beautiful crystals I received from Brazil. I cleared off a top shelf and now proudly display my mixed brown agate pyramid, along with the blue lace agate pyramid and in the rear stands tall the glorious green obelisk. My absolute favorite is the aventurine obelisk. Awesome. Thank you for such nice work.
Dear Guena -- As I held the ""Trees of Hope and Peace"" statuettes, I could feel the positive energy and loving craftsmanship you infused into your artwork. I am saving the two pairs of ""Trees of Love and Joy"" to give as wedding presents to dear friends. Thank you for creating pieces of such power and beauty. And may our world be filled with more hope, peace, love, and joy.
Hi Guena! I just received my beautiful quartz crystal pyramid & want you to know how thrilled I am. It is just beautiful, the colors inside are fabulous! It makes me feel that the piece was carved just for me. Keep up the fabulous work, you are a true artist!
Guena's stonework is lovely. Both the stone and the craftsmanship are excellent. They have a wonderful feel to them. I chose to purchase more of his work instead of buying locally because I know it will be worth it.
Dear Guena, I recently ordered the ""Freedom Heart"" necklace and I absolutely love it. It is perfect and beautiful, and I feel great when I wear it. It has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. Thank you!

My ""Emerald Lust"" gem tree created by Guena arrived today from Brazil and I am absolutely thrilled with it. It came beautifully gift wrapped with a handwritten card of thanks (obrigado) in Portuguese. I was quite moved by this personal touch---realizing that it truly is a gift. Opening it was a treat in itself. It was packed so well that it reminded me of one of those gifts where you have to keep unwrapping box after box till you get your ""prize"". The tree is so much lovelier than the photo rendering. The emeralds are exquisite against the gold-colored brass branches.The base shimmers. Guena has designed a very special piece that will be a treasure and delight to me for years to come. I recently visited Brazil, the land that transformed his life (and mine)---and I am convinced Guena's art truly does come from his heart. OBRIGADA!!
A superb stone. We couldn't be happier. Great shipping.
Fabulously beautiful coasters. Thank you.
My boyfriend is from Brazil and i wanted to get him something special for his birthday. After a long search for something purely amazing, i found your site. All of the art here was breathtaking and it took me quite a while, but Guena's work was irresistible. I couldn't pass it up; it is so beautiful. The fact that it is all natural made it even more special. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
I love the beautiful little Gemstone trees in ""Seasons"" by Guena. They are truly a work of art. Thank you.
My kids & I bought my wife the Medium Amethyst Gem Stone Tree. The size is perfect and my wife was surprised. She remembers a birth stone tree I bought my mom when I was a kid. She has always wanted a gem tree, and we are happy we found trees by Guena. She loves it very much, and Guena's creation is very nice. She loves it so much we are surprising her with another tree for this Valentines Day. She said she would rather have a tree by Guena than roses. So we order the colors of love. My wife loves roses and for her to say she wanted another Guena tree says a lot about the quality.

I opened my package from Novica today. In it was something of exquisite power and beauty; it was the white quartz crystal pyramid made by Guena. It took my breath away. Pure Light. Guena you are a genius, truly inspired by God. It is my pleasure and honour to have something of your work in my home. Philip Andrews
I recently bought the ""Green agate and cedar coasters, 'Amazon Emerald'"" and have had some time to use them and wanted to say that I really like them. I am using them at work in my office space (small cubicle) and everyone who walks by loves them. The only thing is that my coffee mug and water bottle are larger than the size of the coaster; but its not a big deal as I am able to put 2 or 3 of them together to make an interesting display and still protect my desk! I am looking forward to buying more items in the future!
I love the agate wind chime! What a great idea and it looks so fantastic!
I ordered an amethyst tree and when it arrived, it was more beautiful than the photo. What wonderful craftsmanship and caring went into this piece. Thank you so much!
What beautiful work--Your items are lovely! Thank you!!
I just want to say THANK YOU for the most beautiful Amethyst Crystal Skull. After carefully opening the package he was very cool but warmed quickly and the rainbows within began to appear everywhere. I can tell great love went into the working of the stone as pure love filled me as I meditated with him for the first time too. Thank you also for such care in packing for his journey to me as he arrived perfect. I highly recommend you to others and of course will order again.
Wow! I love the geode and the book ends. I loved Brazil when I visited but could not take every souvenir with me. The geode and the bookends are on my desk which makes me think of Brazil every day. On a personal note, is there a way to purchase just the rocks without your artistic sculpting? I love your work, but I also want to show show my granddaughters the natural rocks to explain what you do. Thank you ...your work is absolutely beautiful. Best regards,
I love my agate gemstone tree…I've never seen anything like it. Thank you Guena for creating such beautiful treasures.
I just received the gemstone tree Garnet Passion. It is more beautiful than the pictures. My birthstone is garnet and I consider the stone beautiful. This was a gift for myself. Thank you so much for the beautiful work!

I purchased the most beautiful green agate and cedar coasters and I could not have been happier with them. The stone is wonderful and exotic and I absolutely love the polished cedar holder; the wood practically glows and it smells heavenly! They are marvelous pieces of functional art and I'm proud to have them out on display on my endtables! Thank you!
Dear Guena, thank you so much for your beautiful work. My gemstone trees 'Hope and Peace' and 'Olive Branch of Peace' arrived today. They are absolutely exquisite, truly made from the heart, I love them. Susan, Australia
I purchased the ""Blue Apatite Tree"" from this artist. What a lovely piece! I lived for many years in the swamps of southern Louisiana and am reminded of the cypress trees every time I look at this piece. Absolutely beautiful! THanks!
Very beautiful. Amazing how the artist is able to transform the gemstones into something else.
Guena, I appreciate how delicately my Brazilian jewelry box was made. The blend of the wood and the decorative cover is so enjoyable to look at. Thank you so much. Marcia Berkowitz Maui Hawaii
I ordered the Cedar wood bottle opener set, 'Nature's Ashen Bar for a friend of mine. He truly loved it, especially because it was handmade. My friend likes working with his hands as well, so he appreciated it even more. Thanks :) Sharon

The jewelry box, Amazon Lily, arrived safely today. It's much prettier than in the photo in my option. The lilac agate on the top is stunning and the cedar box is lovely. The box is lined with a soft fabric to keep the contents scratch free. I'm totally delighted. Thank you, Guena!
My dad is so difficult to buy presents for that no ordinary gift will do. This time I had to find something made in Brazil, specifically a Cedar Wood Bottle Opener set. I think it is absolutely beautiful and my dad will certainly think so as well. So much so, in fact, that it may end up like the rest of his presents- in a display case, too nice to use, saved in perfect condition for some time in the future. I may end up having to pry the cork out of wine bottles with a knife, as I wont be allowed to use the wine opener that came with the set. It cant be said enough- absolutely beautiful job.
Guena, I received my ""Olive Branch of Peace"" gem tree today and I have to say it is gorgeous! I have wanted a gem tree ever since my younger sister (who is a geology major at university) received one for Christmas a few years ago. I found several places that sold them at a cheaper price but I don't think they would be as nice in person as your work is. Well worth the money! I am very impressed and I can't wait to show it off to my sister! Thank you so much! Amanda

I purchased the 'Ocean Mysteries' mobile and was very pleased when I received it. The colour is so vivid and I can't wait to place in outside when it gets warmer. I will definitely be watching for more handmade treasures. Thank you.
Wow, what can I say about my stunning crystal gem tree forest? So gorgeous!!!! They are perfect in every way, and I just ordered five more of them as a result! The stones are perfectly matched with balanced variations and nuances. The workmanship,is exceptional, and the colors are so vibrant. Energy radiates from these pieces. I am so pleased! Thank you so much!!!!
My purchase was wrapped beautifully, and arrived before I expected it. The item itself looks better than it did on the web page. I am very happy with this seller! Thank you, Guena!
Absolutely beautiful citrine tree purchased as a 13th Anniversary Gift. It surpassed my expectations! The shipping was quick, and I loved watching it travel different places of interest instead of just a warehouse. The packaging was exceptional so as not to harm my little tree, and the wrapping was quite lovely. Too bad that I have to re-wrap it because the suspense of waiting to see it got the better of me! :) I just can't say enough about this little gem of a tree! I hope to add more to my collection. :)
I ordered one of Guena's handmade agate bar sets as a holiday gift for my father-in-law, who does beautiful woodwork himself and is a lover of good wine. He really appreciated the fact that it was made by an artisan and wanted to know everything about the materials and how it was crafted. Thank you, Guena, for creating such thoughtful, useful pieces. Your art will definitely be a go-to whenever I need a unique gift.
