"Beautiful detailed art for my neck"

I really love this pendant. The carving is so very detailed and it is scientifically accurate as well, which I really appreciate. It is thick and sturdy so I have no worries that it could get broken.

"Nice carving!"

When I received this item, it came all in the same color. You could not see any white specks like the picture. I just lightly sanded the top and now it looks like the picture! Nice!

"Beautiful Octopus"

This is a lovely carved piece. Mine varies from the picture in the placement of some of the tentacles. It gets compliments. Length of the necklace can be adjusted.

"Beautiful piece of jewelry"

I have a great interest in octopus. I read about them in hopes of being in the ocean with them. I have a collection of octopus that I have acquired over many years. The craftsmanship is excellent. The detail, texture and overall design is fantastic. Thank u for sharing your talents with the world. I hope to buy more pieces.

"A beautiful statement piece"

I bought this for myself and named it "Inky" for the octopus that escaped from his tank, leaving poor "Blotchy" all alone. True story. I love it and the work is very detailed. It is larger than I expected.

"Delicate Beauty"

These carved bone swirl earrings are exquisitely crafted. I am amazed at the percision and symmetry of the 2 earrings. They are large and make a statement, yet they are extremely light. They are much more beautiful in person than pictured. I could not be happier. I am never disappointed in any of the jewelry purchases I have made from the Novica artisens.
