"Such wonderful workmanship!"

I am wearing this beautiful treasure for only the second time. Today I have already received two compliments and inquiries as to where I got it. Of course, I tell them about Novica and their relationship with National Geographic. On a recent trip to South Africa, I was honored to be able to ride on Dharma, the elephant! She was glorious! She glided around the rink. It is not a bumpy ride at all. I want to ride one again on my next visit, if I can! Such beautiful creatures. How the artisan captured the beauty in the unique wood. I love this necklace. It will remain a favorite. Thank you, Novica.
