I've been in a cameo kinda mood this week, although if truth be known, I'm always partial to cameos.
They are so classic, come in so many varieties, yet always remain in good taste. And my customers seem to like them too! ;)
This simple necklace is elegant by itself, or would be fun to layer with a rosary or long pearls.
While not exactly cameos, I thought these Virgin Mary medals qualify for this week's collection.
Another of my signature cameo cuff bracelets, this one features a trio of shell cameos (all formerly clip-on earrings). The aqua blue amazonite stones remind me of the clear blue waters of the French Riviera.
Dainty black and white cameos in a goldtone scalloped setting from the 1940s are enhanced by vintage rhinestones and garnets.
Finally, this softly stunning necklace features two fleur de lis pendants and is accented by old shell cameos on each side. A vintage French mother of pearl rosary and light blue 'satin' rosary make for a perfect springtime treat.
All of these pieces are currently available at The French Circus. And please stay tuned for more cameo confections coming soon... :)
