"WOW!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These earrings were my first Novica purchase. To the artist: I LOVE your work! From the entire website collection of earrings, your design caught my eye first and stayed with me until I placed my order. Now that they have arrived, I admire the beautiful design and superb workmanship. I expect to buy more of your pieces. To Novica: I am totally impressed with this shopping experience! The gift bag w/the metal Novica tag is classy and the quality enclosure describing the work makes the package very gift ready. I love that you make it possible to confidently and safely purchase jewelry from artists around the world!

Beautiful craftmanship and high quality silver. The earrings have medium weight to know it is there. I paired it with the Mayan Queen dark green jade necklace. Oh My! It was breathtaking!

"Here comes the sun!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have several pairs of earrings by Francisco Sanchez, and I like all of them, but these are my favorites. His earrings are high quality silver, have a nice medium weight, and these are a good size, big enough to show through my hair, but not gaudy. I like the Aztec reference, but they still look modern and go with lots of outfits, for work or play. I bought these for a friend, as well, because she liked mine so much. I also like his double-headed serpent earrings, for when Im feeling a bit snaky.
