"Beautiful detailed art for my neck"

I really love this pendant. The carving is so very detailed and it is scientifically accurate as well, which I really appreciate. It is thick and sturdy so I have no worries that it could get broken.

"Nice carving!"

When I received this item, it came all in the same color. You could not see any white specks like the picture. I just lightly sanded the top and now it looks like the picture! Nice!

"Beautiful Octopus"

This is a lovely carved piece. Mine varies from the picture in the placement of some of the tentacles. It gets compliments. Length of the necklace can be adjusted.

"Beautiful piece of jewelry"

I have a great interest in octopus. I read about them in hopes of being in the ocean with them. I have a collection of octopus that I have acquired over many years. The craftsmanship is excellent. The detail, texture and overall design is fantastic. Thank u for sharing your talents with the world. I hope to buy more pieces.

"A beautiful statement piece"

I bought this for myself and named it "Inky" for the octopus that escaped from his tank, leaving poor "Blotchy" all alone. True story. I love it and the work is very detailed. It is larger than I expected.

"Bone earrings came unglued"

Gorgeous earrings but the moons fell off and were lost. Please use better glue. I was disappointed to lose the moons because of the glue

"Beautiful bone sun pendant. Terrible glue"

This is a gorgeous piece, as are the earrings, other necklace and bracelet I bought here . However, i was very disappointed because with ALL of the pieces I bought , the bone carved moons and suns came unglued. PLEASE change the glue!Why make such gorgeous work and use such flimsy glue? Fortunately I was able to re-glue the pieces, but with my pair of earrings, the moon fell out somewhere and was lost. Fortunately Novica replaced them when i sent back the originals with the moons gone and lost, but this can all be avoided. Gorilla super glue is quite good, and would be worth it to improve the durability of your craft. These pieces are very expensive, and worth the cost but definitely not if they fall apart.
