I found some of these cameos on ebay. I instantly fell in love with them and had to have them. The cameo alone didn't quite standout and I wanted to showcase the cameo. So I found some teardrop light gray faux pearls (12 mm) and used a wire wrapping technique to turn them into drops. I picked this color because it seemed to go with the faded cameo and make the necklace look more vintage than it was. :-) I centered the cameo on necklace to center link and hooked it with a jump ring. Then counted out spaces evenly to connect pearl drops centered on each side of cameo. A little bit of work but I love this necklace. I wear it when I dress up or even just to dress up a black tshirt :-)
The only tool I used for this project was a pair of round nose pliers.
