Melancholy Cameo | Melancholia Collection
The Melancholy Cameo brooch is a for those wanting a discreet reference to mental illness, or those looking for a classic style cameo brooch.
This cameo brooch features a raised white glimmer marble relief of a woman's profile (or 'cameo'), framed by John Keats' poem 'Ode to Melancholy', painted white in light blue marble acrylic. The outer frame of the cameo is white glimmer - both frame and woman's profile shimmer pale gold in the light.
The text reads (public domain, no copyright):
"But when the melancholy fit shall fall
Sudden from heaven like a weeping cloud,
That fosters the droop-headed flowers all,
And hides the green hill in an April shroud"
Handmade and lasercut in Brisbane, Australia
