- These earrings are handcrafted from:
Peacock blue hand-mounted, vintage-style cameos,
Sterling silver plated settings,
Sterling silver-plated French hook ear-wires
- Approx. 1 1/2 inch/3.81 cm drop.
Cameos have always fascinated me, with their silhouette of a mysterious beautiful lady. Genuine hand-carved abalone cameos are not easy to come by these days. So when I stumbled across these lovely ladies, although they aren’t abalone, I thought they were a stunning faux. They are a matte resin of peacock blue and milky white and are surprisingly lightweight.
“The Brightness of her cheek would shame those stars as daylight doth a lamp;
her eyes in heaven would through the airy region stream so bright that birds would sing,
and think it were not night.”
-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
