Holiday Shopping

I have been doing a little Holiday shopping so I am not rushing at the last minute.  One of my favorite places is Novica, and I am thrilled to be a contributor for them.  I always find such unique gifts and love reading about the artists that create them.

I loved the look of this fabulous shawl and thought it would be perfect for a friend for the Holiday season.

A florid dance emerges from the luxurious silk textures of this elegant Banarasi shawl. By Madhu Agrawal, the bright orange shawl with olive green details is woven on a jacquard loom resulting in an intricate floral and paisley brocade in black. 

    I always love to read about each of the artist and how they create their works of art.  Madhu shares a little about her city and the history of her silk creations.

This piece did not disappoint when it arrived.  Just look at those gorgeous colors and the pattern is exquisite.

I also fell in love with this gorgeous necklace.  I havn't seen a crocheted necklace before.

Inspiring in warm hues, this crocheted necklace is by Thailand's Chuleekorn. For this choker she combines enhanced jasper and aventurine with rutilated quartz and brass beads. The necklace can be adjusted to the desired length.

This gorgeous piece was created by - 


When it arrived, it was even more stunning than the picture.

 The detail with all the beads and gemstones is truly gorgeous.  I think this is a gift that a special person will love.

If you are looking for something special and unique for that special and unique person, give Novica a try.  I am sure you will find just the perfect gift.
