I haven’t done a personal review of a home party business and its products up until this point. I was always afraid of what to do if I didn’t like it. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. That’s what I was taught. I was recently approached by Novica Live to review their products. I explained my concerns and they weren’t worried. They said I would be pleased with the products… and they were right.
Novica Live is a new home party business that specializes in handcrafted jewelry and gifts from around the world… from Mexico to Bali, India to Brazil.
“NOVICA began as a dream - a dream by its founders to cut out all middlemen and unite artisans around the world directly with customers eager to purchase their handcrafted treasures. This unique bridge, made possible by the internet, has allowed customers to see the faces of their artisans, read their stories and watch videos of them crafting their treasures.
Now part of the National Geographic family, NOVICA continues to seek out talented artisans, giving them a fair trade platform to sell their products, and thus ensuring the preservation of ancient artistic traditions” (www.NovicaLive.com)
Once I received their beautiful catalog, I was anxious to order. Right away I found so many items that I wanted. The catalog was divided by country and each product tells a little bit about the artist. The prices were very reasonable but there was a wide range. You can purchase a pair pearl cluster earrings for under $20 or Chenille shawl for over $100.
I finally decided on a simple but elegant pair of pearl earrings from Thailand (that I wear all the time and receive tons of compliments) and a fun and colorful pitcher from Mexico. The order did take a couple weeks to arrive but that’s not too unusual especially since it’s shipped directly from the place it was made. Included inside each item was a little note from the artist. I thought that was a nice touch.
Overall, I was very pleased with Novica Live. I think it’s a wonderful concept for a home party business that not only can help you earn money but can also help artists all over the world.
