From Our Gift Cottage: Raphael Angel Cameo

This is a weekly feature exhibiting different handmade jewelry items available for sale at my mom’s Etsy shop: Diane and Emma’s Gift Cottage. (She’s Diane and I’m Emma. We make jewelry–together!)

This week I have a cameo featuring the contemplative angel made famous by Raphael:

This resin cameo is an interpretation of the painting of a Cherub Angel by the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael, considered one of the greatest artists of all time (not to mention the most popular). (You can see the inspiration for this angel cameo at the bottom of Raphael’s oil painting The Sistine Madonna at artchive.com.)

The beautiful angel in the cameo is ecru on a brown background. The cameo is set in an antique gold plated setting with a bale and a bar pin on the back so it can be worn as a pin or a pendant.

This cameo could be yours for fourteen dollars.

This cameo is available for sale on Etsy.

We also have a variety of other cameos for sale.
