This antique, handcarved, shell cameo has been given a new lease on life with a wire wrapped setting and four freshwater pearls (three on the bottom and one on the top). The cameo has delicate carving, but is also very slightly worn which gives it a softer, timeless feel.
I used solid sterling silver wire for a unique wire wrapped pendant. This is long and dangly and very feminine with a modern flair. I love cameos. They are so feminine and the scale is amazing to me. How do they carve something so small?? :)
I used a prefabricated solid sterling silver bail.

pendant ---- 3.40" / 86mm long (with pearl dangles); .66" / 16mm wide
