You may have gone shopping at the mall, walking by Christmas decorations and lights as your search for the perfect gift. You’ve seen kids playing with Santa, his elves and his reindeer as you’ve gone from store to store to store. You fear you’ll be as grumpy as Scrooge if you don’t fine the present that will be greeted with a huge smile when it’s pulled from under the Christmas tree and unwrapped.
Now you can rest easy. Novica.com, in association with National Geographic, offers beautiful pieces made by artisans from around the world. The Los Angeles Times says Novica “brings the hand-made works of artisans around the globe to consumers at bargain prices. Its goal is twofold: to ramp up a profitable business while improving the economic prospects of isolated artists in some of the world’s poorest pockets.”
Clearly, the jewelry is among the most unique Christmas presents available.
The company deals with artists by way of regional offices and emphasizes their stories and their art, the Times said. “Goods are shipped direct from the country of origin – at the consumer’s expense and a savings to Novica – arriving with an exotic postmark and handwritten postcard,” the paper reported.
National Public Radio said Novica’s efforts let thousands of craftsmen and artists in remote areas of the globe sell their work around the world on the Internet. “This virtual marketplace lowers the cost of exotic handmade products to the consumer and increases profits for the artist,” the program said.
Novica offers anklets, earrings and brooches, but also has cuff bracelets, cocktail rings and statement necklaces. The site has something for that special someone in your life and for friends and relatives. You’ll find top Christmas presents that will be remembered for years.
