Cameo Appearance

It is no surprise that Miu Miu, better known as Prada's quirky little sister, would take an Edwardian classic like the cameo and reinvigorate the age-old staple with a modern spin. The Cammeo Cristal Collection features silhouettes vaguely reminiscent of the 1920s. Women in cloche hats and flapper headpieces are set against oval backdrops of cherry red, cerulean blue, and hot pink. Add a pair of head-turning earrings to denim cut-offs or a bejeweled necklace to a cotton shift for an Art Deco vibe. You can bet if Daisy Buchanan were on the summer party circuit this is exactly what she'd choose!


What You'll Need:
Miu Miu printout
Pendant necklace
Scissors
Mod Podge
Brush
Hot glue gun

 

First, print out the image of the cameo. You will have to play with the size of the image to get the silhouette to fit on your existing pendant. Cut out the oval around the cameo. Next, paint the Mod Podge on the surface of your old pendant and apply the oval cut out on top while taking care to smooth any creases.



 After the paper applique has dried (usually about 5 minutes), paint a layer of Mod Podge over the paper to give the cameo a glossy finish. Once dry, use a hot glue gun to reassemble your pendant. My outdated "Juicy" pendant had a cloth backing and rhinestone setting that I ripped apart, but you can make earrings, bracelets, or rings using this method!
