"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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Sooo beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the jewelry here and have certain favorite artists. Made Wardika is one and Komang Suastra is another. Both do lovely silver work and bone carving. People often ask where I got my earrings and I proudly tell them to buy from Novica. I not only find unique things here but, unlike in regular stores, theyre things that are interesting and suit my tastes. Im also thrilled to help artisans get fair wages and recognition for their work.

These earring are a little smaller than I expected, but they are delicately carved with details on the trunks and ears. Quite amazing. They are very pretty, and I m sure the recipient will treasure them.

"Perfection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece is exquisite. My only complaint is the chain.A cross of this quality deserves Better. Even if the price is raised somewhat it warrants a better chain. I Purchased a better chain and its even more Beautiful. Any young man or older gentleman would wear this piece with pride.??

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.

Wardika comes from a village that specializes in bone carving, a traditional Balinese art that has been passed from generation to generation. When he was eighteen, he began to work as a bone carver and determined that he would become a master carver. Every day, he carefully studied and copied the techniques of the best carvers until he became their equal. Today, he earns a living and proudly supports his family with the sales of his unique carvings. He is able to give work to others in his community and hopes to teach this art to the next generation.

Wardika was a street vendor with an unpredictable income until he joined Novica and shoppers discovered his unique work. Now his Novica sales provide a stable income and he is able to employ artisan assistants to help produce his jewelry.

Made Wardika has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $4000.

Wardika and his family and his four assistants and their families are dependent upon the steady income that Novica provides.

Made provides for his three children and is deeply attentive to teaching them respect for the elders and the natural world.
