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've made 9 houses of the most iconic facades that you will be able to see in Amsterdam, which feature some styles of gables such as the neck gable, bell gable, step gable, or tuit gable, and variations of them. I named each house with short words in Dutch that perfectly fit what this picturesque city radiates, and I hope that those words can also describe how you feel each time you wear the earrings!
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 14k Yellow Gold in small batches and I solder earring posts to the back of the houses and tumble them for making them extra strong.
House size: ~3/16 cubic inch (4x3x7mm), they are REALLY TINY, half of my pinky fingernail, half of a pencil tip.
Solid 14k yellow gold (585)
