Handmade Designer Jewelry by NOVICA Artisans

Just like Neeru Goel, the creator of the charming handmade designer jewelry pictured below, thousands of other artisans share their creations with jewelry lovers around the world through the National Geographic NOVICA program.

The NOVICA’s mission is simple, yet expansive and bold. “We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.”

Though they offer other handmade products; home décor, apparel and paintings, jewelry is at the heart of their online marketplace. Touted by Décor & Style Magazine as “the largest online collection of artisan handcrafted jewelry,” National Geographic has accomplished yet another successful adventure, this time into the realm of e-commerce.

Honored to be a part of the NOVICA program, StylePath gives you access to hundreds of handmade jewelry designs, including handmade bead jewelry and handmade silver jewelry like Neeru Goel’s stunning sterling silver bracelet she aptly named “Tall Cypress” for the tall faceted agate that adorns and joins the links.
