The start of a new year is a great time to think about change.

Are you in need of a little change in your life?
If so, we’d like to suggest our COLOR CHANGING Micro Mirage Bracelets! These pieces are so much fun to wear. They are comfortable and lightweight, but best of all, they are constantly changing color according to your body temperature.

New Year? New Tika Treasures! 

We are continuously working to update the selection of goods we offer online. Check out the *New Items* on our website to see what we’ve been up to!

Photographed here - “Secret Garden” sterling silver and rose quartz pendant. This unique design features a beautifully handcrafted floral setting and is available now in our New Items!

It’s the final Tika Tuesday of 2020 and we can’t think of a better way to mark the occasion than introducing you all to our NEW Silk Face Masks.

These beauties are handmade from recycled silk saris by our Fair Trade partners in Nepal.                          Two great styles to choose from, each piece made to WHO regulations.

It’s Tika Tuesday!

This week we wanted to share some details from these intricately beaded Large Dress Flowers, just added to the website.

These one-of-a-kind traditional amulets are treasured for their unique patterns, textures and color combinations. Perfect for sewing on clothing, making accessories, or adorning your home. Once you start collecting, it’s hard to stop!

These beautiful, Silver Lotus Pendants are handmade by our silversmiths in Java, Indonesia using traditional repoussé techniques. That means no piece is exactly the same, each one a unique creation and a great gift idea for that special someone.

If you’d like to get your hands on one, they are available now in our Silver Pendants category  (link below). We will be adding more unique silver pendants to our website this week, so make sure to keep your eye on our New Items!

~ Giving Thanks ~
Gathering with friends and family might look a little different this year, but it’s still a great time to cultivate gratitude and give thanks.

And it’s ALWAYS a good time to deepen our commitment to showing up for Indigenous people, but especially now that it is Native American Heritage Month. 

How are you shifting your Holiday traditions this year? We’d love to hear from you!

Quan Yin (Guanyin, or Kuan Yin), the Goddess of Compassion who's name roughly translates to "The one who hears the cries of the world".

A female version of the Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva who works selflessly to relieve all sentient beings from suffering.

We’re feeling those festive fall vibes.
Happy Halloween! And don’t forget to turn your clocks back.

First time visitor to the Tika office - Welcome little Marcel! Congratulations to Danielle and Dan! Lots of changes here at Tika and as you can see we are so happy!

Anyone else finding the time to complete an ongoing project or two? This Tika Girl side project was started about two years ago and after recently being excavated from a pile of in-progress bead boards, it’s finally finished!
