I have always loved cameos. When it came time to do a logo for Elegantly Untamed, I actually considered putting a cameo image into design. It wasn't until then that I started doing research on the history of these beautiful pieces. They have been around for hundreds and hundreds years. Cameos used to depict mythological gods and goddesses, used as a status symbols by both genders, cherished as souvenirs by Victorian women, and were even commissioned portraits of the wealthy.
I find cameos really enrich my work with elegance, sophistication, and a touch of opulence. Most of my designs include cameos. And customers really love them as well. All of the recent custom designs had to include cameos per customer requests.
