Hand carved Cameo locket
|Artisan crafted Polish intaglio carving of a portrait in this beautiful locket. Cameo is positive or relief carving image-making in gemstone jewelry.|
There are very few artisans working in cameo as this is one of the hardest challenges for any gemstone carver.
The combination of a highly developed artistic ability, craft skill and many years of experience are needed to be able to create such elaborate cameo portraits.
Classically the designs carved onto cameo stones were either scenes of Greek or Roman mythology or Portraits of Rulers or important dignitaries. Modern cameos of are young ladies in the victorian age, as represented in this lovely natural Baltic Amber silver pendant.
