The Cameo is Back

April 5, 2012

20120405-073104.jpg We carry intaglio and cameo. The difference is, an intaglio is carved into the surface of a medium. A cameo is a raised image above the surface. The variety we carry are created by a small group of artisans in Western Europe. Glass, fossilized ivory, jet and shell are used to create the spectacular pieces we carry at Watson Kennedy.
