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.

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
