About

"Spa" sardonyx Cameo brooch or necklace is set in light pink gold with white, pink and gray pearls is part of a larger collection of artist-designed Cameo jewelry by LIZWORKS founder Liz Swig. Here, she takes on one of the oldest forms of portraiture, dating back to ancient Greece when the profiles of the Gods of Olympus were first carved in agate, and completely reimagines it through the vision of two of the most important contemporary artists working today. “The exploration of the cameo as a contemporary canvas brought me immediately to the work of Catherine Opie and Cindy Sherman,” Swig says. “To see their work three dimensionally carved and seductively sculpted in the tradition of the cameo is a complete thrill.” Opie’s intimate, highly-personal imagery explores universal themes of family and identity, while Sherman, who ignited an exuberant new body of work when she took her Instagram feed from private to public, invites us to consider the cameo as the original selfie. The formality of the cameo is both revered and turned on its head. The cameos are hand carved in Italy in small editions under the vision a third-generation cameo maker in Torre del Greco, where shell cameos have been produced for centuries. Set in gold and ornately adorned, each individual cameo conjures up an entire world unto itself—mesmerizing, discrete, and complete. Cindy Sherman is an American photographer and film director, whose transformative self-portraits are largely concerned with problematics of femininity, addressing stereotypes of women in film, magazines, television and the culture at large. “I like cameos, especially the idea of dark, strange ones. I also like the idea of tiny objects being art. It seemed like a good project for using my Instagram images since the files aren’t large enough files to blow up into photographs, and they also concentrate on being mainly portraits. It’ll make it more fun to wear it as a piece of art.”.
