Vintage cameo pendant. This Cancerian pendant measures 1.16 inches wide by 1.77 inches long, including the bail.
Hand-carved conch shell cameo cabochons were a very popular art form for jewelry in the 60's. Many artists sought new materials for carving and started using the new resins that had become available in order to imitate the conch shell cameos. Suddenly, those became the fashion. This vintage cameo pendant is of the resin variety and hand carved so that each piece is unique! The bail has been glued onto the back of the zodiac pendant. All part of the charm of the 60's I guess. The chain is not included.
