Beautiful Gemstone Gifts with a Conscience at NOVICA

I’ve been spending a lot of time looking for unique gift ideas. The holidays are coming up, after all, and my family is getting harder and harder to buy for. I mean, I can only get my mom so many sweaters, especially when she barely leaves the house! I’ve always loved gemstones. I’m Pagan, so I do believe in the mystical properties to an extent. Besides, they’re just so beautiful!

When NOVICA gave me $75 to spend to try out their site, I spent hours pouring over all the beautiful artisan creations. I must have had about 50 browser tabs open of possible purchases. I noticed that half my tabs included some types of gemstone creation. They had everything from stunning jewelry to sweet little gemstone trees. As I browsed, the trees in particular called out to me.

Dispel Negativity with Guarded Dreams of Onyx

Beautiful Gemstone Gifts with a Conscience at NOVICA

After a particularly traumatic experience back in May related to my surgery, I’ve been dealing with a lot of negative thoughts and energies in my life. When I saw the Guarded Dreams of Onyx tree and read how it helps dispel negativity, I knew I found my item. Onyx is also the birthstone for Leos, which I so happen to be! I know, I’m like the most introverted Leo ever, right?

The tree was created by an artist named, Guena, a former accountant who left his desk behind to pursue his dreams of becoming an artisan sculptor. He fell in love with gemstones, and now travels all around Brazil finding the most beautiful specimens for his gorgeous works of art. In fact, my little tree traveled all the way from Brazil to my doorstep! It was carefully wrapped for the journey. When it arrived, I just had to reshape the branches and it was ready to be displayed!

 

 

Beautiful Gemstone Gifts with a Conscience at NOVICA

My little Onyx tree stands just under 5 inches tall, but it definitely makes an impact in the room! I have it sitting on my mantle, so I can see it while I work. The artistic workmanship is beautiful. Each small onyx stone is attached to the wire base securely. The tree itself is secured to a tourmaline base. Tourmaline is actually the piece of the work that repels negativity. The onyx guides your dreams, making it perfect for also inspiring creativity.

The wonderful thing about NOVICA is that your purchases help support artisans all over the world. Plus, everything on the site is fair trade sourced. As of the time of this article, NOVICA has helped artisans earn $50 million dollars for their amazing works! NOVICA gives artists a platform to sell their work internationally, which helps them help provide for their families and better their communities. When you purchase from NOVICA, you’re getting a gift with a conscience!

More beautiful Gemstone Gifts at NOVICA

As I said, I had a good 50 tabs open before choosing my tree! Check out a few of the other items I was considering. Click on the pictures to check out the item.

Remember back in July, I told you how excited I am to be the lead blogger for fall’s Miracle Marathon, specifically in support of Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, PA? If you need a refresher, check out that post here. Today I want to share exactly why I’m so happy to be part of this. I mean, aside from helping children get the care they need!

Let's Get Active & Make Miracles Happen! #MiracleMarathon

If you’ve been with me for a while, you may know about Jacob’s birth story. It was kind of crazy. Long story short: I gave birth 8 weeks early due to preeclampsia, Jacob was 3 pounds, 5 ounces AND they broke his arm getting him out. He spent 13 days in the NICU and required quite a bit of care after he came home. While I can’t say for certain whether Jacob’s hospital was part of the Children’s Miracle Network, I know first hand how important it is to have access to quality care for your child.

Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital

The hospital that I am trying to raise awareness about is the Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, PA (they also have a unit at the hospital in Wilkes-Barre). I was unable to take a tour of the hospital due to car troubles, but I spoke with the wonderful Coordinator, Kate, about the services provided.  I asked her how many kids came through the hospital each year. She told me:

Janet Weis Children’s Hospital treats approximately 4,000 children a year. But, if you consider all of the pediatric facilities at Geisinger throughout the state of PA, close to 200,000 children are treated each year.  That is inpatient and outpatient combined. Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger funds equipment, programs and services for all of the peds locations throughout Geisinger Health System.

While it would be a better world if no child ever needed medical care, the reality is that kids get sick. They get hurt. When they do, they need the best possible medical care available. The Miracle Network makes sure they get it.

Let’s Make Miracles Together!

Are you ready to make miracles happen for kids? Join me in the Miracle Marathon! What is it? Well, the Miracle Marathon is a 27-day virtual fundraising campaign in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion of any kind!) one mile per day at their leisure. The first 26 days are completed at the participant’s own pace—at a time and place of their own choosing. On Day 27, the final 1.2 miles will be started as a group at the same time (2:27 pm EST). It’s a marathon, plus a mile, for the kids!

There are so many ways that you can accomplish your marathon! Take a mile-long walk with your dog. Stroll around the block a couple of times a day. Walk around the mall and window shop. Just as long as you are moving, you’re working towards the goal!

Please join me and register to support Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital or another Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, and tell your friends too! And if you register as a Miracle Maker (you’ll receive fun swag!), you can use my special code MiracleNicole to get a 10% discount off registration. It’s such an amazing cause. I’m really proud to be supporting it!

Join Team Pretty Opinionated today! Or, if you prefer, you can support me and make a donation. Every little bit helps!
