Queen's Day (Koninginnedag in Dutch) is a much-celebrated holiday in The Netherlands. Dutch people young and old take to the streets dressed in orange in celebration of the birthday of Queen Beatrix of the Royal House of Orange-Nassau. Orange clothes from head to toe, orange drinks and foods, and orange pennant garlands fill every street and every home. This shiny orange house I've created is my dedication to Holland's Koninginnedag.

In case you're not Dutch:
* Wear this necklace to support your favorite orange sports team
• Symbolize starting a new home together with the one you love
* Mother's Day gift to show your Mother how much the home she created meant to you
* Handmade wedding favors or gifts for bridesmaids, Mother of the bride, and others
* Housewarming gift for new homeowners
* Thank you gift for your real estate agent or interior designer

I form each pendant by hand (no molds or casts are used) from pure white clay from the coast of Spain. Lots of sanding and finishing work is done before I varnish and paint each little house with supremely glossy enamel. Both the front and back shine brightly and reflect the light beautifully, while the sides, top and bottom reveal the raw white clay beneath. The pendant measures approximately 24 x 17 x 12 mm (1" x 3/4" x 1/2"), and hangs from an 18" silver cable neckwire (unlike the copper-colored wire shown).



If you do happen to be Dutch:

Hup Holland Hup! ;-)
