Custom Cameo Necklace for a Mother’s 80th Birthday

Nonna-Cameo-portrait-photo-300

This is one of my favorite custom cameo necklaces. The portrait is of a much loved Mother and was a gift from her son to celebrate her 80th birthday. The cameo portrait is carved onto a white on pink-red layered Agate gemstone. The setting is in 14kt Yellow Gold. On the back of the gold necklace I hand engraved a personal message from her son, ‘Nonna Siria Greco’.

Dear Gareth, I received the cameo yesterday and it’s absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much, your talent is a beautiful gift and sharing with others is truly amazing. Sincerely Joseph.

I love carving portrait cameos of older people. There is so much character on their faces. Their personality really shows in their portrait photos. I used a special technique to enhance the carving. The face and background were given a satin finish. I polished her clothing and the pearls. This creates a wonderful contrast that really brings the portrait to life.
