Custom Cameos for Men

I have made custom Cameos for men to wear. These include Western-style Bolo Ties, Cameo Rings, Cameo Cufflinks and Desktop Cameos. When designing for a man I have found that strong colors work very well.  I would suggest white on wedgewood – blue, white on brown and white on black.

A non traditional shape like a rectangular panel, a rectangle with rounded corners or a trapezoid can look very good on a man.

For an organic look the cameo pendant can be worn with a single brown or black leather cord, a braided leather cord, black or brown rubber.

An exciting modern option is to select a chain made from Titanium, stainless steel or Black Tungsten. Or more traditionally Silver, white or yellow Gold or Platinum.

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 W. USA.

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.

Western Bolo Tie Portrait Cameo

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.
