~Cameo Come Back!~

It's like Candy
I can feel it when you walk
Even when you talk, it takes over me.

Every time I hear the word 'Cameo', it makes me think of the 70s/80s funk group 'Cameo', you know....the cod piece worn by the lead singer and the song 'Candy'.   

Yep, Word up.

However, today is to show you the gift my Mother gave me recently. This cameo belonged to my Grandmother, and I have loved it since I was a child. Beautifully carved out of shell and encased in twisted 14k gold, this brooch/pendant reminds me of why I love things with history so much!
Just like the group, Cameo....ow! 

Yep, history just collided!

Seriously now! In 2004, a few months before my Grandmother passed away, she gave me a gorgeous Wedgewood blue brooch from Germany, I always wear it with a simple white v-neck t-shirt, off to the side, near my left shoulder or with a navy ribbon worn around my neck. Nothing complicated, just a splash of blue with white, a constant reminder of my Grandmother's elegance and a tribute to the passing on of rich history.

How do I plan to wear this newly gifted piece?  As a pendant on a gold chain, pearls and maybe an occasional slip of an ivory silk ribbon. Or all three.

Doesn't that sound so pretty?  

Take a look at the jewelry that you have. Is it different & beautiful? Does it make you smile  & remember someone dear to you? All vintage jewelry holds history you know!
Dust it off, mix with chain, pearls and ribbon to give it a new modern life, then wear proudly. 

 It's like {eye} Candy! Ow! Click here for a view of the past.....
