My love for Cameos<< All Articles
I’m not sure when or why I became fascinated with cameos. It could be because they are carved from sea shells and I’ve always loved being close to the ocean. I purchased my first cameo while in Italy, as a gift for my editor. Sometime later I saw several at an antique show and was struck by the workmanship and the understated beauty. I discovered I liked the larger ones and wore them as necklaces. Over the years I’ve managed to collect about fifty cameos, some antique, some new. They are my most treasured pieces of jewelry.
