Oakville, Ontario, CANADA
retired - exploring nature in my country, as well as other countries.
I am a retired person, currently working part-time in a grocery store.
I am an animal lover, having five domestic cats. I also love wild cats, especially tigers, and am very passionate about spreading the word about animal conservation. I think we need to be much more active in educating the world to care about animals -- there is a strong connection between how we treat animals and how we treat each other.
We must stop destroying their habitat and killing species for body parts.
Future generations have a right to experience these gorgeous animals.
I also am very interested in caring for our environment. We need to think of alternative power sources and living a much less wasteful life.
What I like most about Novica:
The most important thing to me is the fact I am helping someone make a living by doing what they love to do.
As well, I get to choose from the most exquisite and hand-made items from every corner of the world.
The quality is excellent and prices are very reasonable.
I love that artists are eco-conscious and make unique items that are recycled.
Everyone wins and helping someone make a good living for their family makes me feel good.

Testimonial for Giuliana Valz-Gen
I purchased the 'Antique Cross of Faith' as a gift for someone I work with. When I showed a few co-workers the picture of this cross, they all agreed it was beautiful and would suit the person it was being purchased for. When I received it, I was very pleased. It was dainty, unique, and the styling was exquisite. The recipient of this gift was very pleased with the cross and put in on as soon as she saw it. Thank you for your wonderful filigree design jewellery. I will definitely be purchasing more items from you in the future.
Testimonial for Antonio Rojas
I have just received your 'Timeless Love' cedar jewelery box. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even the wrapping was beautiful, but when I saw the jewelery box, I was at a loss for words. The heart design and Victorian styling made it one of my most favourite purchases. I collect decorative boxes and this is one of my favourites. It will take its place with the rest of my Novica treasures. Thank you and I look forward to seeing more of your unique and beautiful work.

Hema, I originally bought your 'mystical butterflies' amethyst bracelet as a gift for someone. It took my breath away as soon as I saw it. The intricate filigree style and amethysts have made it one of my favourite pieces of jewellery. I will be purchasing more items in the future. Thank you for making such incredibly beautiful jewellery.
