The Tiny Amsterdam house pendants are my little tribute to the beautiful city of Amsterdam. I love this town, it's small enough to cycle it from point to point in only 40min, but big enough to embrace people from 170 nationalities... eclectic, forward-thinking, cool and at the same time super "gezellig" (cozy) and historical with houses which were built up to back in the 1500s. No matter the crazy weather or a hard day, looking at the pretty houses spread throughout the city always lifts my spirit.
I'm excited to add this facade to my evergrowing Tiny Amsterdam collection. It's a bit larger than the other models in order to be able to capture as many details as possible. You will find this beautiful house when strolling through the Jodenbuurt (Jewish neighborhood). From 1639 to 1658, Rembrandt lived and ran his flourishing atelier in this house! The facade of this historic building has changed a bit over the years, and my representation resembles the current one.
how it's made
I've made the models of the tiny houses meticulously by hand using traditional silversmithing techniques, no 3D printing involved! Then, I cast them in 925 Silver or 14k yellow gold in small batches and finish them by hand.
House size: .2x.15x.4" (5x4x9mm), it is REALLY TINY, half of my pinky fingernail, half of a pencil tip.
Chain length: 15" (38cm), ~16" (40cm), or ~18" (45cm) - If you need a different length just let me know!
Solid Sterling Silver (925)
