DESIGN element ~ the cameo.

Cameo images originally appeared crafted in shell and glass as decorative objects enjoyed by both Greek and Roman civilizations. These delicate carvings were coveted, collected and commissioned by the wealthy and powerful. Emperors, presidents and beautiful women graced and inspired the production of these objects during it's many fashionable revivals. Today, the essence of the cameo is available in plastic, paper and even deliciously decorated food. Above are some of the coolest cameos around.
