A translucent German glass intaglio, featuring the profiled head of the goddess Demeter, is set in a round silver plate earring with an intricate backside.
Carved images used for personal adornment have cast a romantic spell over people's imaginations for thousands of years. Folklore relates cameos' mystic capacity to attract health and good fortune. When the artist carves into the stone to hollow out a recessed image, the piece is called an intaglio. Originally, intaglios had a practical as well as decorative purpose. When brushed with ink or wax, they could be used as a seal or identifying stamp to mark a letter or document.
Earring measures ½ inch in diameter. French hook.
Extasia designs jewelry that combines classic beauty and old world craftsmanship with current fashion trends. Their glass cameos and intaglios are meticulously detailed, handmade in Europe by a small number of artisans using 100-year-old techniques.
