Your daily dose of pretty: Flower Cameo necklace

I love cameos, they always make me think of my Great Aunty Thelma, a wonderfully old fashioned Catholic spinster who played a huge part in my upbringing until she died when I was ten. Aunty Thelma taught me many things that still stay with me, including how to properly  'flick' open a fan. Somewhere I still have one of her old fans that she gave to me and I love to imagine what she would have looked like, and what sort of dresses she would have worn, all those decades ago when she was flicking her fan.

The cameo on this gorgeous necklace is particularly pretty:

I love the delicate detailing of the flower. US$20.00 from Adorntonia on Etsy.
