Strategies / Priorities
Cameo has been carving a 2000-year-old tradition in Georgia. The museums of Georgia house a wealth of unique jewelry.
The originality of the gallery “Cameo” is a making of a Portrait cameo (hand-made cameo) according to a persons photograph, which is made by artist-craftsman Besarion Darjania using a seashell with different color layers and mammoth ivory (legal material). Every cameo portrait carving is one of a kind.
Also, artist accepts orders on decorative cameos according to a customer's design. Commissions of any design are accepted: the company logos, Family-Arms, modern, historic and antique theme, significant events, decorative portraits, landscape, flowers, animals.
Gallery "Cameo" is interested in popularization of Georgian art, the promotion of young talents as well as the Georgian cultural heritage.
