Cameos can be found in art dating to 3 BC in Greece and Rome, and have enjoyed many resurgences in popularity as objects of art and jewelry throughout history. Having appeared as pendants, brooches, signet rings, and even in the crowns of royalty, these delicate relief designs offer a bit of romantic elegance.
This classic motif is prominent in philosophy, theology and mythology, appearing in art throughout the ages from around the world. The enduring design symbolizes a connection with all life.
Create unique jewelry with an updated twist on the cameo - make your own cast glass Tree of Life cameo cabochons with this detailed relief mold. The 2" x 2-1/2" mold produces a single 1-1/2" x 2" oval cabochon. Coat molds with ZYP or casting mold primer before use. See size perspective of mold with quarter images shown.
Mold uses 30 grams of frit or scrap glass.
