Cameos have been on jewelry for a long time, but today, thanks to jewelry designer Tom Binns now we can found the cameos in bright and neon colors, he transformed the classic cameo in to a modern version for his spring 2012 collection, those cameos inspired this DIY.
You can find the collection Here.
For this project, you will need: Sculpey (I used grey, but you can use any color you like), knife, some cheap cameos (I found $1 cameo earrings at jewelry box), rhinestone crystals, strong glue, flower pendant (mine was from a broken clip earring), chain in desired length, embroidery thread and nail polishes in the colors you want ( I used white, green, mint and fuchsia).
First I detach the cameo from the earring, then I used white nail polish to paint the silhouette (I did this because that way the green needed less coats of polish). I also used mint polish to paint around the silhouette.
Shape a flat circle with the sculpey, then cut the edges to make a flower-like shape, using a knife, don't forget to puncture a hole with a toothpick on the top to insert your chain. Bake it for 30 mins at 275 F. Let it cool.
Paint your sculpey shape with your desired color, I used fuchsia, you can also use colored sculpey and skip this step. Add the cameo to the sculpey using the strong glue, add the rhinestones too.
Use a jump ring to attach the pendant, then add another jump ring to attach your chain, I used embroidery thread to add some color to the chain, I just make a knot when wearing it, but you can use only chain and add a clasp to the ends.
