TGIF, friends!  I’m so excited to bring you YET ANOTHER giveaway this month!   You may remember last year I reviewed products from NOVICA, an online international artist marketplace that is part of the National Geographic family.  What an amazing experience that was from start to finish… and my eyes were opened to the incredible talent that exists in so many nations around the world.

I was thrilled when NOVICA contacted me to review another product AND host a giveaway for YOU this fall!  What better time to get your holiday shopping started or to treat yourself… like I did. 🙂

Last year, I selected some home decor beauties…

Novica India Novica Peru

This year I opted for jewelry… because I’m a sucker for a fabulous pair of earrings. 🙂

Novica Thailand

I chose these gold and pearl beauties from Thailand… and I loved the care taken with packaging, the artist’s story, and the handwritten thank you note.

Are these gorgeous, or what?

Morning Dew earrings

And when I wear them?  The compliments come flooding in…


Please disregard my crows feet… yikes!

The craftsmanship is stunning and they are lightweight and gorgeous.  I’ll be wearing these often!  And the best part?  They’re unique!
