And I didn't even have to remove my shoes! The exquisite artistry strung in wooden beads speaks volumes of a vibrant culture. One can vicariously imagine the pulse of,say, a market on the outskirts of Accra where I might haggle good-naturedly over the price of her creation with Elizabeth Alorchie-Apetor! Africa travels well. kudos to the artisans' of NOVICA! Thank You Elizabeth! John.

I have had this piece for a while and I love it. It is absolutely unique and always gets attention when I wear it. The craftsmanship is awesome. Simply a stunning piece. I have searched for another one. Hopefully the artist will make more.
As soon as this piece arrived my wife put it on and we both loved it. Simple yet bright, original yet not showy. Thank you so much to Ila for making such a special necklace!
