A friend gave me this cameo brooch that was special to her and wanted me to convert it into a necklace for a Christmas gift. Hmmmm. How was I going to do this? My initial idea fell through (adhering the cameo to a bezel) due to size and frankly, time was running out. So I just caged the piece using filigree. I had her write her favorite word to describe her sister (“love”). I then used her word (using her writing) and made a bezel clasp. There it is—a finished very personalized piece. I’ll whip up a little custom bag and give it to her tomorrow.
Sparkles and love,
