NOVICA Review and Giveaway - Ends 12-23-12

Print Friendly and PDF


There is only 12 more days until Christmas!  Have you finished up your Holiday Shopping?  If you haven't you should check out NOVICA!  NOVICA unites you with more than 2,000 extraordinary master artists around the world.  Read about their lives, explore their fascinating cultures, and select from more than 30,000 handcrafted works of art.  For this review I received a $50.00 Gift Code and I ordered the Pina Colada Glasses!  I thought they look awesome and they would be perfect for serving cocktails, especially during the Holiday Season!   They are hand-blown and very well made.  NOVICA has some exquisite products that would make the perfect gift for everyone on your shopping list!  I would highly recommend the Pina Colada Glasses!



About the Pina Colada Glasses

Set of six attractive glasses from Javier and Efrén, ideal for serving refreshing Piña Coladas.  A sweet slice of pineapple will rest enticingly over the emerald-colored rim.



Because each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass.  This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.


About NOVICA

NOVICA.com was founded twelve years ago as an online, fair-trade marketplace based in Los Angeles, with offices in eight developing nations.  Novica features more than 30,000 limited edition and one-of-a-kind handmade works of art daily, ranging from artisan-crafted jewelry to handmade apparel to world-style home decor.  So far NOVICA has succeeded in helping change the lives of more than 75,000 people in developing nations, including artisans and their dependents, uniquely helping each artisan earn personal recognition and real-world prices for their work.


Let artisans from around the world help you decorate and entertain with an exciting range of tableware.

Discover everything you need to create a unique dining experience including hand woven table linens, hand blown glassware, Talavera plates and bowls, serving dishes, bar ware, tea pots and so much more.


NOVICA has the largest online collection of artisan handcrafted jewelry, including pearl, turquoise and extraordinary silver treasures.


A brief history of jewelry

Men and women have adorned themselves with jewelry since long before the age of reason!  Garlands of flowers, bracelets of woven grass, shells, and stone; such were the first decorations to beautify the human body.  We may have been wearing jewelry as far back as 75,000 years ago - 30,000 years earlier than previously believed - according to a recent report by National Geographic News.



Home Decor and Decorating Tips

There's no place like home!  Whether you are returning from a long day at the office, or arriving back after a wonderful vacation, there should be no greater feeling than crossing your own threshold into the beauty and comfort of the place you call home.

It is surprisingly easy to transform literally any space into a place of warmth and comfort.  Your home may be a college dorm, a worn apartment, or a stunning mansion. Regardless, the same basic home decorating tips apply.


***There are four Tweets you can do each day for 8 extra entries, but must be 2 hours apart! Your entry will be disqualified if you do not leave a link or your user name when asked. 

There has been many entries that have won, but were disqualified for not leaving a link and user name when asked!
