In association with National Geographic, ecommerce site Novica provides a platform for artisans around the globe to sell their artwork and wares. There’s sterling silver jewelry with druzy gems from Brazil and turquoise from Mexico, African masks and handwoven baskets, batik scarves and pillows from India, rugs from the Andes Mountains, Mayan hammocks, Balinese coconut carvings, Thai ceramics, and other home furnishings, fashions and accessories with an ethnic flavor. Novica gave me a $75 gift certificate to pass on to one of you. If you win, consider using it for a unique gift for your mom, seeing how Mother’s Day is not far off.
