Oh, how I adore cameos. My sweet sister purchased one for me this past summer while touring Italy. It is from the Cellini Factory and the scene depicts a lovely young maiden being serenaded by a tiny bird. What an art form! The finite detail really makes my heart sing.
I have tried to seek out and work with antique and vintage cameos in my jewelry. They are a bit difficult to find, let alone to afford. The few I have listed here are sweet and pretty and it is a delight to showcase them with pearls. Buy the cameo, first and foremost, for its beauty, but secondly because it makes a beautiful piece of everyday, wearable art. Don't see one you like? Thirty more cameo creations coming in the next 30 days!
Many of my regular customers have been encouraged to pull out family heirloom cameos to be recreated into a necklace. If you have one you would like for me to work with, I'd be delighted to hear from you!
