    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. The mysteries of the earth are revealed in the melodious chimes of this mobile from Guena. It is inspired by Feng Shui principles that tell of positive energies coming through as the wind announces its passing. The mobile is crafted by hand with agates that have been dyed to resemble the earth's fiery core.

    Story Behind the Art:

     

    I have more patience for art than for logic! In 1980 I left behind a career as an accountant and I dove into the artistic universe. I began as an artisan's assistant and a sculptor, and gradually I became fascinated with gems and crystals. Soon after, I was exhibiting my work at local art fairs and markets. Despite the fact my academic formation revolved around sitting behind a desk, now I can tell you I could never go back to a technical or bureaucratic job – I have more patience for art than for logic! Nowadays I travel throughout Brazil in search of crystals from Bahia, emeralds from Minas Gerais, agates from Rio Grande do Sul, and many other naturally occurring wonders. I continuously learn new techniques and craft different products. I realize I have experienced a great personal transformation. Although many times difficult, I have learned that the path of an artisan is a path without return in which a person experiences beauty to the maximum, as well as moments of singular freedom.


    I know the Internet has a great potential, but I must admit I don't know much about computers – it's synonymous to a way of life I long left behind. I leave that to my children - they can take care of it for me. To me, Novica means an excellent opportunity for people to get to know the extraordinary work people all over the world are capable of making. It is an excellent way for an artisan to exhibit his work without the confinement of borders.

    • Happy buyer
      Verified Purchase

      It took a bit longer to arrive than expected, but then again it was coming from Brazil. Besides that we are pleased with our purchase and impressed with the extra secure and environmental packaging.

    • Verified Purchase

      Great product, great price and great shipping.

    • Poorly Made

      See review on blue Agate explaining problem with wind chime because cheaply made.

    • Doesn't like to be outdoors
      Verified Purchase

      Great chime for a protected area not prone to significant wind or rain. More than a gentle breeze will cause the chime to tie itself in knots and the wood that is used is not sealed so that it absorbs moisture and gets covered in mold and mildew. Other than that, it's pretty awesome.

    • poor quality and hanging ability
      Verified Purchase

      This item was delivered tangled in many knots. It was impossible to get the knots out of the plastic string. Very cheap looking for the price.

    • Wind Chimes
      Verified Purchase

      More beautiful than words and say.
