This Gift for the grandma of the bride caused a sensation at the wedding

Hi Gareth! I just got home and opened the package and it is so beautiful. I can’t wait to give the cameo jewel to her. Thank you, Kate

I am 24 years old and getting married in August of this year. My grandmother, who is my namesake, is one of the strongest influences in my life, and I would like to make a cameo of my grandfather for her.

My grandma came from Italy when she was just 16, after having lost both her parents and living in a convent for most of her childhood. My grandma was adopted by an aunt and uncle, and was essentially used as a worker for their farm.

My grandfather was the first person who treated my grandma with the love and respect she deserved, and I  would like to give her something of him that she can keep forever, on the day when I marry my loving and respecting man…Kate

A gift for the grandmother of the Bride. Presented at her wedding. The grandmother was delighted with her special gift, which was pinned onto the corsage.

I created this cameo from a wedding photo that dated from 1940. The cameo is carved into a white on red layered Agate Gemstone. I left a thin white layer to create a subtle pink background.

Their names Carmine and Anna are hand engraved on the sides. The setting is Silver and is made dual purpose so it can be worn as a pendant and as a brooch pin.
