Gifts from around the world: Handmade Terracotta Necklace

My Terracotta necklace!!!
My #1 gift finding online shop in! You won't be dissappointed.  Their stunning jewelry and other handmade gifts are sure to impress a love one.  

I have always had a passion for travelling and studying different cultures. I also love to buy gifts from different places that you cannot just buy at your local mall. A vase from India or a handmade bracelet from Sri Lanka is much more than a thing of beauty. It means more because there is a culture and a story behind the piece. It's not just a mass produced item that we are used to buying. This is why I am head over heels for shopping at Novica. They give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity.
Once you visit this website, I'm sure you too will fall in love with the merchandise, artist's stories, and unique gifts available. You will have access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values.

Here are 2 items from their vast jewelry department that I found to make perfect gifts.
Check out how it comes packaged:
I love the postcard, handwritten note, and little card that tells about the artisan's story.
