You must have heard about cameo. If you have not, you just did :)

It is a method of carving an object on a ellipse shaped base. The object is usually white and the background black ( or blue, red-brown). And around it is decorated with details (as you can see on the picture). The main motive is an ancient Greek woman (or a flower like on the left one).

They have first emerged in Ancient Greece. But you probably first thought of Renaissance or the 18th and 19th centuries when they appeared again. 

I love vintage things. I know these earrings are plastic, but they have cameos looks :) I got them in C&A for less than 10€. I really like them :)

What do you think of cameos? :)
