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.

    I can’t begin to thank Gareth enough for the cameo he made for my mother on her 80th birthday. When she opened the box, her face expressed so much joy and love in seeing her beloved mother and my Nonna. I am forever grateful to Gareth, his work is a beautiful gift that is shared with humanity in bringing joy and happiness to so many.
