Capturing His Gaze
Her lady's maid closes the clasp on Miss Annie's necklace letting her favorite pendant fall elegantly into place then finishes buttoning the jade waterfall silk dress Annie is wearing. Tonight is the night. She has been invited to the exclusive gala to be held at the London home of Mr. Anthony Crawford. Arriving fashionably late, she squares her shoulders and intrepidly walks into the room as she is announced. Slyly looking through her eyelashes, she is euphoric seeing she has captured the gaze of the highly sought-after Mr. Crawford.
Historical Fiction by Amanda Ashmore
The “ANNIE” monogram was designed by the great heraldic artist J. Gordon Smith, and is found in his book, Monograms in Three and Four Letters, published in London, England in 1903. Recreated in .999 Fine Silver, the smooth edges on this one-of-a-kind pendant move the viewer’s attention not only to the central monogram, but also to the ivy detailing along the top. Adorned with a rope design, the detachable sterling silver bail opens inwardly and can accommodate most small to mid-sized chains or beaded necklaces.
