2020 has been a tough year.  We have had to shelter in place and for the fortunate amongst us, those places are our homes. Home, sweet home.

Here are 8 wonderful architectural jewelry celebrating houses!

Shown above is a lovely polymer clay house entitled Neighbor's House necklace. The creator is Minnesota based Chris Baird of BairdPlayWorks. Her house brooches are also beautiful!

These tiny yet adorable stained glass house brooches are by Russian artisans, Eugene Koksharov and Anna Dobrunova of ArtBrothersGlass .

Although I haven't been there for many years, New Orleans is one of my favorite cities to visit.  There is so much history, sometimes dark, there. It was there that I first saw shotgun houses, These are small and narrow, with the rooms built one behind the other. Doors are at each end of the house. This predominantly 19th century architectural style can be seen in various places in southern states in the US and was popular in New Orleans. Today, steps have made to preserve some of these houses.

On the other side of the "pond", old Dutch canal houses were also slim but tall.  These small, delicate Amsterdam canal row houses in a unique silver necklace design was created by Lorena of gemagenta. Lorena, an industrial designer by training,  is actually Mexican but she currently lives in Amsterdam.

Canadian artist, Carrie Paquette of Artbycarriepaquette, hand painted a miniature house on a stone for this unique pendant necklace. 

Not into muted and minimalist styles?  Go bold with this bright and colorful houses chunky bib necklace design by Canadian polymer clay artist, Sacha Pilgrim of SassySachaJewelry.

Mid-century modern houses and furniture are all the rage.  This miniature mid-century modern laser cut acrylic necklace certainly celebrates renewed interest in that style.   The husband and wife British designers, Jo and Andrew Strange of TinyScenic, aim to create "a whole 'town' of miniature accessories - with houses, roadstop diners, motels, forest cabins, mini cable cars - basically all the stuff we love, but in tiny, wearable form." They said they were "inspired by road trips in the USA, mid century modern, novelty roadside architecture and naff British model villages."

This beaded Amsterdam canal houses necklace is so pretty! The Turkish designer is N. Koroglu of NermoshHandmade.
