Madison developed a love of cameos at a young age when her grandmother began passing her collection down to Madison. She told Madison to cherish them because there is an unknown story behind each one. That filled Madison with wonder as a child, and is now the philosophy imprinted in the creation of the pieces. The romantic pendants are symbols of antiquity stretching across Ancient Roman rule, the Renaissance, and the American Civil War. To wear a cameo around your neck is to wear someone’s story from the past.
