From Tucson to Vegas: Cameo & Beyond
Cameo & Beyond is new to the industry, but their roots run deep. Established in 2016, the company picked up where tradition left off—with the family business, which produced cameos during the 1990s. Cameo & Beyond joined us this year at JCK Tucson 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited that they’ve decided to join us again for JCK Las Vegas!
We spoke with Francesco Paolillo, who—along with his wife, Soraya, and sister, Margherita—creates Cameo & Beyond’s incredible selection of finely detailed cameo jewelry. If you missed them in Tucson, don’t worry, you’re in luck—get to know Cameo & Beyond before checking them out in person at JCK Las Vegas this year!
First, tell us about Cameo & Beyond’s background.
Wanting to repurpose our family tradition of porcelain cameo-making, we started Cameo & Beyond three years ago, resuming the family tradition that stopped in the late ’90s. The company is headquartered in London, with its productions entirely in the Treviso province of Italy.
What inspires your new, refreshed take on the ancient cameo design?
We ventured to reinterpret the inspirational success of the family heritage from Italy and are committed to creating elegant jewels that are unmistakably original, and contemporary works of art.
Do you find that there is a resurgence in the demand for cameo jewelry?
The cameo is appealing to all ages and generations. It is a timeless symbol of elegance.
