“Look at that sea, girls—all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
—Lucy Maud Montgomery,
Anne of Green Gables
About This Listing
This listing is for a hand-painted clay pendant featuring an intricate gouache seascape inspired by lines from Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. The pendants are finished with two coats of UV-resistant gloss varnish on the front, and left unvarnished on the back so as to highlight the gritty earthen texture of the fired clay. They are signed and dated by the artist on the back. Each pendant measures approximately 1.5 inches in diameter and comes with a 21-inch silver-plated figaro chain. It will be packaged in a decorative Kraft jewelry box with velvety black backing, and accompanied by a printed and signed label detailing the specifications of the piece and including the quotation that inspired it.
Because these pendants are handmade and hand-painted, no two are identical, although all share the same colors and general design. Thus, the pendant you receive may not be exactly the same as the ones highlighted in the photos, but will be its own unique and original work of art.
To ensure a long life for your hand-painted pendant, keep it dry and take care not to drop it or scratch the surface. Dust as needed with a clean microfiber cloth.
"Wouldn't you just love to be rich, girls?" Jane Andrews asks on the drive home from an evening of lavish entertainment at the White Sands Hotel.
Anne says, "We are rich. Why, we have sixteen years to our credit, and we’re happy as queens, and we’ve all got imaginations, more or less." And then, looking out over the Gulf of St. Lawrence: "Look at that sea, girls."
I hope these pendants will be for their wearers like a gentle reminder to relinquish the false security of wealth and to let beauty flow through our lives with perfect freedom.
