"Thoughtful Man is exquisite!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was expecting excellence (because of the descriptive pictures) and thats what I got! I Love Thoughtful Man! Its very well done and eye catching. I was quite surprised that mine came two-toned, but (in my eye) thats what makes it exquisite for me. The height and overall size is perfect. The ebony and lighter side are blended and done to perfection. Ive also ordered a set of 5 elephants, and now, Im Really excited about getting them! Actually, they should be waiting when I get home tonight! :) Novica is my new shopping place for sculptures!

"Wow! This is so gorgeous! An instant mood lift."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If this is glass it sure fooled me; these beads look like frosted quartz. These are not small beads. I think they are actually 12mm, but dont look or feel too big on. The multi-color cording makes this bracelet so outstanding. It reminds me of a vivid rainbow. I am sure to get lots of compliments when I wear it out and about. The macrame is excellent, and every bead is perfectly round and frosted. There are tiny black beads at the ends of the pull cords. I have small wrists so it is a little large on me, but I dont mind it sitting near the top of my hand. I have a 10mm bead necklace of hand-knotted, frosted quartz I can wear with this, but the eyes will be drawn to this beautiful bracelet. I think this bracelet would make great gifts for friends and it is very reasonably priced.

I have a pair these that I love. At first I thought they would be too large, but have realized they are just right to accent many outfits. I loved them so much I ordered a pair for a friend and she also loves them.
