2012 is the year of the cameo, they are no longer reserved for your grandmothers jewelry box. Cameos have been popping up in designer collections all year and seen on the streets as demonstrated by Miroslava Duma, editor at Harper’s Bazaar Russia (above). Jewelry design extraordinaire, Tom Binns came out with a quirky collection of cameo jewelry infused with a punky neon color palette (below).
Lanvin featured oversize Cameo pendants in their Pre Autumn/Fall 2012 collection. (as seen below)
And Miu Miu showed quirky wooden based cameos with bright colors in their Spring/Summer 2012 campaign photos in the form of earrings, necklaces and cuff bracelets. (pictured below)
Here are some of my favorite cameo pieces from around the web including a couple from Tom Binns (below).
Stay tuned because tomorrow I am going to give you a peek into one of the drawers of jewelry parts in my studio…it’s my stash of cameos and intaglios. I’m going to take the inspiration from this trend and make a few things utilizing the pieces i’ve collected.
