Cameos are in!

Cameos have survived the ages since they've been first created. Almost in every style you can find cameos. Here you can find a collection of cameos across Etsy in various styles. "Love Me a Cameo" Treasury displays a few of many crafty and imaginative Etsians using cameos in their artwork. A few of these great artisits you will find below. If you like their work, check out the Treasury and their Shops for more great designs.

Cameos represent the Victorian Era, so it is no surprise that it can be found in the ever growing trend of Steampunk, such as MizzDraconia's "The Scientist Choker".

Cameos often signify romance in their presentation of beuatiful and elegant women. There has always been a touch of romance (however tragic) in the gothic style and therefore cameos are very popular among goths, especially those depicting skulls and skeletons, such as FaerieDustDesigns's "Danse Macabre Vintage Escutcheon Cuff".

As macabre and grim as these can be, cameos also represent femininity. Not all cameos are presented in such a dark fashion. The above pieces are dynamic and beautiful but it reaches out only to those who enjoy Steampunk and Gothic Fashion or lifestyle. What about us more lady like women? We haven't been left out. AmazingDesign has created a very feminine, vintage style piece. This "Gold Victorian Lady Cameo" would easily suit a woman who likes to express her feminine side.

Cameos don't need to be about women however. A cameo can depict just about anything. LovedtoDeath has taken the idea of a cameo and ran away with it. In her piece, she has used preserved Prairie Dog Paw and sealed it in resin on a cameo. This "Prairie Dog Paw Silver Cameo Necklace" is not for everyone, but for the sake of wearing original jewelry, you will certainly get some attention.

Infinitales has gone ahead and used modern cartoon characters in her "Ephemeral Dancer" in a vintage style cameo in the shape of a butterfly.

Check out "Love Me a Cameo" for more great Cameos in various styles and methods of design.
