This beautiful detailed cameo is a wonderful gift for a cat lover (especially black cat lovers!). The sweetest black kitten sleeps in a bed of beautiful red roses!

These gorgeous silver cameo necklaces are another exclusive design from Melissa Dawn, purrfect for cat lovers. These cameo settings measure approximately 1.5 inches in length and feature a beautiful lace-like border and a solid back. They are perfect for collectors who'd like something smaller than our large charmed cameos but bigger than our small lockets; the entire cameo is approximately the size of the 40x30mm cabochon in our Charmed Cameos.

** A silver chain is the default necklace, just let us know if you'd prefer a black cord instead!**

These silver-plated cameo settings feature an ornate, elegant design and a 25x18mm cab, and measure approximately 1.5" in length. An archival print of my original painting "Sweet Daydreams" is set beneath a clear 25x 18mm acrylic cabochon bubble. Each cameo comes on a 16" silver chain with appoximately a 1.5" extender chain, and is accented by a genuine Swarovski crystal drop. The watermark you see across the image is for online protection only and will not appear on your necklace.

Your crystal cameo will arrive in a beautiful sheer organza bag, perfect for gift-giving or storing your cameo in.

Thanks for looking!

~~~***~~~Behind the making of the cameo~~~***~~~

Each cameo goes through a multiple-step, multiple-day process; during each step I inspect my work carefully to make sure it meets the highest quality standards. First, I have to print each image and choose a cab for it. I first glue the cabochon over then image; when that's dry, I carefully cut it out and prepare it for the second step, which is securing the cab to the cameo itself.

I use one of the strongest (and finicky!) glues available to do so; while that dries, I take a crystal, insert a headpin, and wrap it so I can hang it on the charm. When the cameo is dry I string it on a chain, add the charm & crystal, and place it in an organza bag. It's now ready to go home to you!

I have done my best to preserve the image and protect it from the elements; it should be perfectly all right to wear if you're dashing from the car to the house in the rain. However, I would attempt to keep it safe from water and other possibly destructive elements, which may also affect the plating on the cameo and chain.

Most of our jewelry is either sterling silver plated brass, silver plated brass, or pewter. We don't carry solid gold or silver jewelry because the prices would be prohibitive for both us and our customers (think $50-$200), and because most of the ornate cameo designs and lockets aren't available in precious metals. If you would like to purchase Melissa's jewelry but can usually only wear precious metals, there are several solutions. The most basic option is painting the part of the jewelry that touches your skin with clear nail polish. Melissa has used that with jean buttons & jewelry over the years and it works wonderfully (just reapply the nail polish at some point). Another solution is Renaissance Wax, which protects and preserves the jewelry. Please note that you should use extreme care not to get either substance on the actual cab with the image itself!
