As we arrived to Torre del Greco, on the bay of Naples, we had the chance to see the production of one of the hand-made art object typical to this part of Italy, The cameo. The beautiful cameos, jewels carved from seashells, and very prized little treasures.
Cameos are gems form the sea, since they are made of shells. The shells that are most prized for cameos are conch for they are a suited kind for carving work. The carving of a cameo is not easy job, and only an artist of the kind is able to produce the beautiful figures with the most intriguing details that are so specific to the cameos.
