Anyway let's get back to the topic..
What is a Cammeo?
Cameo is a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised (positive) relief image; contrast with intaglio, which has a negative image. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background.
Sometimes dyes are used to enhance these colours.
The most used colors are white on black, white on blue and white on pink/red, but you can also find white on green cammeos..but actually you can make them in any color now! These are just the most common.
Today for gothic fashion you can even find corsets with big kind of cammeo on!! *-*
Some modern revisitation of cammeos:
Lovely aren't they? and you can find them at normal jewel /accessories shops like Bijou Brigitte or Accessorize at very low price!
