Cameo jewelry can be traced as far back as the 3rd century BC! These were used not only for jewelry, but also as signet rings. Cameos were very popular during the Roman era, resurfaced during the Renaissance and then was once again popular in the 19th century. Most ancient cameos came from Greece and Rome. Even now, Italy remains the hot spot for cameo engraving.
I took a plain white resin Victorian lady cameo and stated to play with Patina paints mixing different colors, then started to paint. I used two different shades of gold and a blue color of Patina paste. Painting the cameo and seeing it being transformed is one of my greatest pleasures. I love and enjoy this process because I can design something new all the time. The Victorian lady pendant is different, you will not find another one like this. After the paint on the pendant dries (usually a day). I added Mod Podge gloss to seal the paints. I added Swarovski Denim blue rhinestones to the setting, then I glued the pendant to to setting. For an extra touch, I added Swarovski denim blue crystal bead and Czech denim blue bell flower bead to the bottom of the setting.
