Cameo love

Cameos are another item I always try and keep an eye out for in op shops. Not just any cameo will do though, they can't be too lightweight or plastic looking and they have to be relatively nice looking (some can be a wea bit challenged in that area!). This is another of my Mum's little collections that I borrow from time to time.

I love these necklaces. Originally they were just pendants that we found chains for. My favourite is the one on the right. I found the stand in an op shop too; it's a cute little mini hat stand that I use to hang dainty necklaces on.

You may have seen these already from the brooch collection, although the blue cameo is a new addition. I think they look so nice with the filigree borders.

Lastly are these little cameo earrings. This is the best photo I could get on my point-and-shoot but you get the idea. It would be great to find a little cameo ring next :)


  1. What a lovely collection of cameos! I came across a really nice cameo ring the other day, but it was a bit exxy for my liking.

  2. cameos are super timeless. love your collection


  3. I am really into cameos too right now. I just bought a really cool skull one on Etsy which is a bit different but really awesome. I am yet to find a nice cameo item in an opshop though!


  4. I like the blue one, it's a bit different from most cameos I've seen about :)

  5. the blue one is beautiful and I used to have one of those stands as well but didn't know it was a hat stand. Great blog, enjoying your posts and learning new stuff as I go along :)
