NOVICA Treasures From Around The World! #NOVICA #GIVEAWAY

NOVICA $50 Gift Card

Y’all should sit down for this one! Especially Pam from NOVICA! I did NOT order a CONNIE Ring, as Pam referrers to them. A BIG, BOLD, silver, knuckle to knuckle ring. But NOT this time!! Not this time……….. wait, what?!?! WHO AM I!?!?!? Trust me, it took every ounce of willpower I had. Have you SEEN the selection of amazing rings on the NOVICA site?!??!?! (I also probably own a good amount of them)  All hand made, all them unique and actually made by artisans I would never have the chance to meet in real life.

My choices arrived from Bali and The Andes Mountains. We all know this G’ma spends to much money on the Grands to be able to save up to fly to Bali. (I do have it on my vision board, so never say never!!)

know you have to be sitting on the edge of your seat to see what I did select.

First up a stunning hand carved deer. OMGEEEE wait until you see this amazing work of art!
This is the Hand carved Benalu Wood Deer Statue Menjangan

Bali’s Yudi Suardi’s hand carves a menjangan–meaning “deer” in Indonesian–from a piece of benalu, or parasite wood. The name also refers to Menjangan Island, an uninhabited island west of Bali where wild deer roam. Please note the base may vary in shape and size, as the artisan uses found benalu wood pieces to create this sculpture.

The statue is super lightweight at just 0.4 lbs. Made of Benalu wood, my little guy is 7.75″ high, 5.5″ wide and approximately 3.9″ deep. Wood grain is different with each hand-crafted item — along with the color, so is the size and details because each deer is hand carved. Made in Indonesia. He has the MOST unique underside. It resembles a mushroom. He looks amazing standing proud next to my basket of antler sheds.

Next up Hand Carved Jointed Wood Dog Sculpture, “Seated Dog”

Handcrafted from native Albesia wood, this articulated sculpture of man’s best friend is coming home for the holidays. Bali’s Togog Suyasa presents this fanciful figure, enhanced with acrylic painted details. Another extremely lightweight wood weighing in at 0.3 lbs. AND he is 11.75″ high, 3.5″ wide and about 3.1″ in diameter. This one I bought especially for my daughter Selena. She’s a dog lover to the moon and back. Now, do I wait till next year when she delivers me Alice or do I send now………. the evil little guy on my shoulder says he will be on my little roll-top desk until next summer. (insert evil laugh here……. kind of a Cruella Deville laugh, please)

Also, please direct your attention to the roll-top desk! The chair and desk are once together again!!! After sitting down to think about it I realized this desk is 80 years old! EIGHTY!! AND four generations have sat at this desk and did their homework. How amazing is that?!!?

The cute little dog is made of Albesia wood, hand-crafted so each dog will be different in size and details. This little guy came from Indonesia.


So I splurged a little and grabbed this Peruvian Handcrafted, Tooled Leather Tray for The Husband.

This is SO cool, crafted by hand, this catchall is richly tooled leather. Johnny Jimenez creates his design with wavy borders and bramble thorn motifs. Leather lacings hold the shape of the practical decorative tray.  Another item that weighs in at a little over 0.5 lbs. The tray is large in size. 10.25″ diameter, 2.4″ high and 12.5″ wide.  Since this item is also hand created you know your piece will be unique in size, color and motif. This piece will only get better with time as it is genuine leather. This tray arrived from Peru.

Each piece arrives with a HAND WRITTEN thank you card from the artisan, not only in English but also in their native tongue. I mean HELLO! How cool is that?!?!  Tenma Kasih is Thank you in Bali. So, learn that ya know…. for when we go. MAY have to learn Selamat Pagi Good Morning. I dunno about you, but, I’m pretty sure I can get by with just those two phrases.


I’m thrilled with all of my purchases. I always am when I shop at NOVICA. Packages arrive SO VERY WELL PACKAGED!!!! Everything arrives safely.

I swear if you have a hard to shop for person, GO to NOVICA you WILL find THE PERFECT GIFT!!
