Cameo Necklace


Hi guys! I just love this Steampunk Debutante line from Graphic 45! I saw this image and immediately thought of a cameo so I put this little necklace together!




Here is what you need for this project:

  • 40×30 Cabachon setting ( I got mine here )
  • 40×30 Clear plastic charm cover (From here)
  • Rosary chain or other chain of your choice with clasp
  • Jump ring
  • Small pliers for jewelry
  • Scissors
  • Small paintbrush for glue
  • White glue that dries clear
  • Hot glue
  • May Arts Ribbon SX10 3/8 Black Grosgrain
  • Image in bottom lower left of Steampunk Debutante Frames page



  • Take the clear charm cover and place it over the image you want to use for the charm.
  • Using scissors carefully use the cover as a guide and cut out your image.
  • Use the small paintbrush to put a thin coat of glue onto the front of the image.
  • Immediately place the clear cover onto the image and smooth out any air bubbles.
  • Let dry.
  • While that is drying take your ribbon and tie a small bow.
  • After image is dry it is now time to glue it to your setting, be sure that it is centered.
  • Attach jump ring to setting and then to chain center.
  • Glue bow to the top of the setting and let dry.



 Enjoy your necklace! The possibilities are endless with these and they can be customized to fit any outfit!
