"BEAUTIFUL CRAFTSMANSHIP"

I am a big fan of octopus and this piece is super. Anatomically correct and the patina on the bone is lovely. Very happy. I cannot say enough about Novica and their customer service. Very prompt and communicative with updates. I highly recommend this company.

"Awesome !!!"

This piece was larger than I expected which is fantastic. It will surely make a statement when I wear it. The necklace itself is adjustable which makes it easy to wear with any length neck line. Handcrafted exquisitely !!!

"unique and detailed"

This surpassed every hope for quality and detail. The package arrived in a cloth bag and a note card written his own language. I ordered 2 different pieces from this same artist and am in love with both. Cannot wait to place another order.

"Octopus pendant"

This bone pendant is nicely carved. The rectangular shape gives it a more contemporary look while the size makes a bold statement. I added my own silver chain and love wearing this piece with green shirts. I recommend this pendant to all octopus lovers, especially those who want to give a subtle nod to a love of sci-fi and fantasy.

"Detailed and beautifully made"

Lovely detailed piece, I have put it on a 15 inch silver rope chain which I feel sets it off even better.

"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.
