Blackwood Cameo Necklace

Blackwood Cameo Necklace

I don’t think it’s a secret that I’m addicted to Anne Rice. I’ve been reading her books voraciously, and just finished the final Vampire Chronicle. In the second to last book of the series, Blackwood Farm, fledgling vampire Tarquin Blackwood tells Lestat the story of his family’s gothic past and how he came to be a vampire. Throughout the story of Quinn and his family, cameos play a significant role. Anne’s descriptions of ornately carved shell cameos made me covetous — I wanted Aunt Queen’s antique collection and Lestat’s cameo buttoned frock coat. The cameo I’ve created here is only acrylic, but it’s certainly inspired by her storytelling.
