    Cameo Jewellery
    I've created a model of a cameo and I want to produce it in glass.
    It would be great if the manufacture could produce the cameo- gold plated frame-and packaging. Thanks, Bronze77 email.

    Is your question something along the lines of "Is there anyone out there that can make my cameo?"

    I'm just a little confused; that's all.

    Yes,a manufacturer who can make all of the parts from my master.

    Hmm I'll look around, but you may have to visit local jewelry stores and see if anyone is willing to do it (or if anyone can). Also find and scour local arts and crafts fairs. You might stumble upon someone who is a cameo artist and that can (and is willing) or you may have to ask. Bring your master, be very polite and patient, and be willing to shell out a lot for this one. Custom work is already expensive, and I'm not sure of many artists that do it. Some yes, absolutely.

    Another possibility is find the person to make the cameo and then find someone else to make the framing.

    Amazing! I open up the New York Times Style section and what's there? Cameos!

    Here's the site they advertised:
    Welcome to Amedeo Scognamiglio

    Very cool!

    Thanks for your interest in my project.
    To clarify, I'm interested in finding a manufacturer who can do the whole project - glass, frame and packaging, for a startup run of at least 1,000 peaces.
    So far, it seems that I'll have to find manufacturers in Taiwan or China.

    Thanks, B.77

    But will a manufacturer in Taiwan or China do "real" cameos? Or a cheap knock-off?
