I have made custom Cameos for men to wear. These include Western-style Bolo Ties, Cameo Rings, Cameo Cufflinks and Desktop Cameos.
Custom Cameo for a Man with a Portrait of his Wife
The cameo arrived this morning. Oh My God….it is absolutely incredible!!!! You captured her image in such detail. I cannot thank enough for this unbelievable piece of art. This means the world to me. Again that you for all your hard work and incredible talent. Gratefully…Marq Wheeler
This is one of my favourite stories. Designing cameo jewelry for men to wear is a rare and interesting challenge.
I was contacted by Marq to make a cameo with the image of his wife. His wife had sadly passed a few years ago. He wore a necklace that contained a compartment filled with some of his wife’s ashes. He loved wearing this every day.
Marq needed a cameo necklace that was strong enough to wear every day. They had two Harley Davidson motorbikes and rode them on month-long tours of the United States. The necklace had to be strong enough top stay on in all conditions.
I researched the design and realized that the Bolo tie was designed for cowboys to wear all day long in the saddle. I made a sliding mechanism that was pinned to the back of the cameo pendant. The necklace cord was solid leather with the ends capped by Bolo tips.
Marq’s wife loved dragonflies. I engraved an inscription ( kept secret by request ), accented by engraved dragonflies. This was such a success and I smile whenever I remember this project.
Your portrait cameos is set inside a frame. This can be displayed on a desktop, in a showcase or shown as a picture on a wall.
Your family deserves the very best for their ‘gift of a lifetime’.
