Beautiful, unique, glass Intaglio "cameo" brooch pendant with hand selected and strung salvaged beads.

The word cameo specifically describes a relief image raised higher than its background and carved from one material. In contrast, if the artist carves down into the stone to hollow out a recessed image, the resulting work is called an "intaglio" (pronounced with a silent "g"). Originally, intaglios had a practical as well as decorative purpose. When brushed with ink or wax, the intaglio can be used as a seal or identifying stamp to mark a letter or document.
