Perfect for the Hippo Lover!
Anna Yawson has carved a magnificent hippo! The necklace is adjustable and will make the perfect and unique gift for my daughter, who collects hippos. It is definitely one of a kind and she has nothing like it. She will be thrilled with Annas wonderful craftsmanship!
Very happy with this beautiful necklace!
Ive been looking for a necklace that would look good with any attire, and this is it. Ive been shopping for a 16-18 necklace that I could wear with just about anything, but especially casual clothes.All my shorter necklaces are either gold or silver and kind of blah. I wanted something unique. Novica was the answer Id gotten other items from Novica and was always satisfied. When I came across their new African collection, I browsed and found this beautiful necklace. I wear it around the house, and out-and-about. I recommended it highly.
I love wearing the Lion pendant!
Not only was the lion pendant everything I was hoping for, but everything else about this purchase - shipping, packaging, etc - was OUTSTANDING! I will support Novica again, with PLEASURE! Five stars, for sure.

"I was good at learning through watching my brother when he was carving, and then I would try my hand and I would ask for assistance when needed."
