I think I’m in trouble. I found a worldwide Etsy. Local artisans from around the globe. Now you don’t have to travel to Bali to get that one of a kind sculpture. You can support them and learn who they are, all through Novica.
You can spend HOURS traveling around Novica’s website. Good thing I had something in mind before I began.
Silver Pendant Necklaces. During my browsing I received a little history lesson…
The earliest pendant was one made of copper and dates back to 8700BC Sumeria. Some historians also believe that pendant necklaces were worn before this in the form of a rock strung onto a string-like material. Later, Egyptian Pharaohs wore a special type of pendant that served as protection against evil. The Greeks adorned themselves in pendant necklaces that featured vase-shaped pendants to depict figures of Greek mythology.
I found this very fascinating as the necklace I was searching for would have a very special meaning to me. In July I was baptized once again in my favorite place…the ocean.
I wanted a silver cross pendant that I could wear to always remember this special day. I found the Floral Cross crafted by hand by Cesar Godoy from Mexico. The Onyx is the middle which is the gem of protection.
I didn’t stop there though. I was intrigued with everything. I also grabbed these adorable Stoneware Tea Cups.
They are not on the website anymore and my memory is not so good so I apologize by not being able to tell you who made them and from where, but I will say that they are small and adorable and make me feel like a real tea drinker, which is a new thing for me.
