"My Favorite Purchase!"

I LOVE, LOVE THIS BEAUTIFUL BOX I USE FOR EARRINGS. Carving and box are professional, as well as the colors. Very smart, attractive 2 drawer pine box. The colors blend nicely and I had that WOW! Factor when I opened up the packaging. All NOVICA items are so well packed for shipping.

"A Spirited Cross"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am always on the lookout for crosses that have an essence in addition to the spiritual significance. When I saw this cross from the artisans of Gods Seed, I was very impressed. The curvature of the cross lends it gracefulness, and the focus is the white dove representing the Holy Spirit. The bright hues of the other birds and flowers just add to the beauty of this lovely, unpretentious cross. I hung it on the end of a bookcase right next to my desk where I could see it whenever I glanced up from the keyboard. I found it to be pleasantly comforting. This group of artisans has other equally beautiful crosses available from Novica.

I see this in the morning when I first wake up, and it helps to fill my day with a reverential joy. The inspiration story of Juan Diego and his vision is told in beautiful colors and a lovely design. I thank the artist very much for this lovely cross.

This is a colorful example of the life of our Lord and Savior! It is so beautiful and represents the life of Christ so well. The artist has taken you from the birth of Christ to the cruxifixion of Christ on this Wall cross. You will be so impressed with each phase of His life on this cross! c
