The cameo arrived today. My wife was overjoyed. Thank you for creating the best gift that she could ever imagine. I had involved my 3 year old daughter in the process along the way: showing her your website, proposal and stream of e-mailed photographs.
She was quite excited to see the finished piece, but managed to keep the surprise. Even better, she was delighted to see her mothers response when she opened the gift. Thanks again for creating such a lovely work of art.

This cameo is shown in the book Cameos Old & New
One of the cameos that carver Gareth David Eckley is most proud of is the result of a commission he received from a Chicago couple. Using a photograph as a guide, he hand-carved a likeness in blue agate of their young daughter.
Highly personalised cameos like this one accurately and lovingly, capture a moment in time of a beloved family member…
