This cameo represents Penelope, the Queen of Ithaca being lead in secret by her lady in waiting to her husband Odysseus who came back from the Trojan War anonymously. This is a great story of love, fidelity and loyalty.
Handmade solid yellow bronze medallion. Reproduction of a 17th c. cameo.
The came is 17 mm with light pink fresh water pearl.
I make my own molds and do not use the technique of casting so each piece is individually made. Each piece is signed in the back. Bronze bail soldered in the back.
14k gold filled 1.4mm length thin chain options. Gold filled has 100 times more gold than plated thus does not rub or peel off.
