Order Information



This is one of my favorite stories. Designing cameo jewelry for men to wear is a rare and interesting challenge.

A husband asked me 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.

My customer needed a cameo necklace that was strong enough to wear every day. He rode a Harley Davidson and went on month-long tours of the United States. The necklace had to be strong enough to 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.

The 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.
