"Very Sweet indeed! Great gift items"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I kept two of these for myself and gave the rest away to managers (and associates) at pet stores where I purchase my fresh water fish for my aquariums. They love them! I made my own extra special by adding some fun beads. It is so much fun to buy ornaments from Novica - Keep some - give the rest as gifts. Always great values and superb quality.

These little guys are beautiful and although I bought them for myself, I will probably buy more to give as gifts. They are so bright, colorful and cheerful. I really like how small they are, They will be wonderful additions to my Christmas tree!

Roxana has flourished by continuing to use traditional techniques in her alebrije art and continues to pass down her craft to her grandchildren, as her elders had passed down to her.

Roxana has been awarded 2nd place in the 2018 State Wood Carvings Contest as well as the 2015 Grand Master Award for the best Artisan Heritage piece of Mexico.

They financially support all four of their children through school so that they may have better opportunities in their future careers.

Roxana has been able to build her workshop over the years and now gives work to other artisans in her community.

Jesus and Roxana are both incredibly dedicated parents and financially support their four children together.

This artist shows a lot of talent or potential and is in their late teens or twenties.
