Woodbridge, VA United States
Before I became a homemaker, I did odd jobs for the family business, then on to waitressing, sales, & customer service until I finally stumbled onto the Printing/Publishing Industry. I spent almost a decade there until becoming a stay-at-home-wife...then mother.
I am an avid reader, internet surfer, & documentary watcher. I consider myself more spiritual than religious, & believe that it's a very personal choice either way. I'm a jaded optimist; when knocked down by life's trials, I know I'll do what I must to get up again. I enjoy riding my motorcycle, the outdoors, artisan shops, & book stores. I'd like to get a tattoo someday. I'm known for my "infectious laugh," & have a husband & daughter who keep me at it every day. *I don't have a photo of me on this computer yet so I dropped in one of my daughter instead.*
What I like most about Novica:
Novica enables us to connect with one another -no matter how great the miles or the differences between us may be- via one of the most universal of all languages...our ART.

Testimonial for Jiap Rojjana
I purchased three handbags; "Nutmeg Meadow" & "Thai Sapphire" for myself, & "Ruby Elephant" for a good friend of mine. Although they looked larger on the model in the photos, they are all just perfect! They go beyond perfect, really, and into the "stunning" realm. All of the materials, from the fabric to the metal &/or beaded accents are gorgeous. I used the "Thai Sapphire" handbag yesterday & was not disappointed whatsoever. The design of these lovely bags seems well thought-out, & expertly crafted. The strap stayed on my shoulder, the bag stayed tucked against my side, everything was easy to find, & no matter how much I stuffed into the bag it never felt or looked bulky. Another feature I really like are the wider sections of the straps set just above the compartment area. This design feature, while visually pleasing, makes dropping things into the bag a sure thing. No more items bouncing off the edge of my bag onto the floor, no more keys catching an edge to droop over the side...& eventually fall to the floor. Also, these wider strap sections help protect the contents once they are inside the compartment; an excellent benefit when shopping in crowded stores & markets. I love everything about these handbags & hope to someday own at least one in every color! Oh, and my friend LOVES her new "Ruby Elephant" handbag (& is planning to purchase "Blue Blossoms" for herself). I presented the bag to her yesterday & she's already decided it's THE bag she's taking for her upcoming cruise. So, from me & my very happy friend...Thank you very much!
Testimonial for Wayan Asmana
I could not help but purchase the turquoise & silver "Blue Regency" earrings, crafted by Wayan Asmana - Bali and Java. They simply called to me, and I could not find their like anywhere else. I was even more thrilled when they arrived (surprisingly fast, btw), and I could see just how lovely they really were! The silverwork is much more delicate-looking than I expected, but by no means fragile. And it frames the polished-to-a-warm-glow stones just beautifully! I received compliments and questions about these gorgeous earrings all day long. Thank you Mr. Asmana (and Novica!) for sharing your artestry and vision with me!
Testimonial for Anusara
Anusara's "Marshmallow Delight" earrings are even lovelier than in the photo! Beautifully designed & crafted, they have quickly become a favorite for the Spring & Summer months. Simply gorgeous!
Testimonial for Juh Vieira and Fernando Magriffi
The "Colorful Amazon" bracelet is SO gorgeous I can't imagine taking it off! It's unique, beautifully crafted, comfortable to wear, and definitely eye-catching without being ostentatious; the perfect combination for me. It even smells wonderful! I may look ridiculous walking around sniffing my bracelet, but it's like aromatherapy. The subtle scents of young trees, sunlight, fresh water, rich earth are calming, yet so full of life! I just love it...thank you so much!
