All types of cameos...

girlio cameo red flower necklace
I recently made a small collection of cameo jewelry. I paired the lacquered cameos with antiqued gold plated filigrees. I have been reading about the history of cameos and it's interesting to find out that they date back to 300 years before the birth of Christ. They were first believed to have hailed from Egypt and all sorts of people wore them, including women from the Hellenistic era to Napoleon.

Speaking of cameos, this Cameo dates back to the 1980's and his red thong always makes laugh.
