Pet Portrait Cameo Pendant of a Dog in 14kt White Gold with Diamond
Pet Portrait of a beloved 'Sheltie'. My customer wanted me to make a cameo that showed the coloring of the dog. To do this I had to create a complex inlay. I actually carved a cameo in the brown. I then cut away the central area to inlay the white onyx.
A blue background was desired. The only way to do this was to grind away the natural white layer. I was then left with a 2mm thin cameo. I bonded this onto a blue gemstone. The last detail was to inlay black agate eyes and nose. This project took twice the time of a regular cameo carving and was a great success.
The necklace setting is in Gold and can be worn as a pendant. Customize with a portrait of your pet. Delivery in 8 weeks.
