Like haiku poetry, cameos are miniature works of art…but you can wear these.
“And full on the bauble-crest alway–
A cameo image keen and fine…”*

- Velvet ribbon is the period-perfect stringing material for showing off a cameo pendant.
- With the availability of ring blanks, you can set a cameo in one to wear on a finger.
- These cameos make a delightful centerpiece when attached to a leather cuff bracelet.
“A pleasant picture, purely set,
Its mood all fair, though grave.
The virtue of an amulet
To my remembrance gave.”**
