Details

Say members of the Santiago Atitlan Women's Group, "We love nature, its colors, its textures, and the creatures that live in it," and they share this love through a pair of ornaments. In shining orange and blue, two beautiful octopuses are crafted of petite glass beads that are carefully applied by hand. The Guatemalan artisans detail each octopus with surprisingly intricate shapes with eight long tentacles that curl below for a fascinating addition to the tree.

"Love these!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Even more beautiful than in the photo. They appear to be well made with love and care. Thought about giving one as a gift, but not sure I could part with it now. Im considering hanging one from the rear-view mirror of my car so people can see it. (After all, its just too cute to only see during the Christmas holiday). And if they ask where I got it from, I will tell them. :)

"Amazing and so well constructed!"

I purchased these for myself, but as soon as I received them I tried to order more for friends, but they were no longer available (I am totally not surprised by that!) They are really beautiful and so well constructed. I know I will enjoy them for years to come!

"Beautiful Ornaments!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Bought this and the marine beauty pair. These ornaments look like they were lovingly made. And I hope to hang them year-round, since they are too cute to only show off during the Christmas holiday. A big Thanks to NOVICA and to the artist who made these little treasures. :)

"Amazing bead work! One to keep - one to give away"

I bought this set to share with a friend who also likes sea turtles. I let my husband choose which one we would keep (as both are wonderful). I know my friend will love hers.
