The new jewels with cameo by Amedeo Scognamiglio, carved in Torre del Greco (Naples) and that are so apreciate in the States ♦
We’ve already talked about Amedeo Scognamiglio here. Just remember that he has cameos in his blood: at 16 he learned the art of carving from his father. A family specialty that has its roots in the nineteenth century, from Torre del Greco (Naples) to international jewelry. At 29, Amedeo, together with his childhood friend Roberto, launched Faraone Mennella, Rfmas, one of the most famous luxury brands in the world today.
In 2006 he opened Amedeo, a boutique in the chic Upper East Side in New York, dedicated to cameos, which he continues to produce in Torre del Greco, but revisited in contemporary style. It was a success. To the collections that by now have mostly monkeys and skulls, other icons are now added, such as the Hindu divinity Ganesh, a robot, a turtle. In short, the cameo technique, but far from the neoclassical figures that usually populate this type of jewelry.
A work, that of Amedeo, that is also likes celebrities like Spike Lee, who wore the jewels of the Neapolitan jeweler on the occasion of the Oscar ceremony. Lavinia Andorno
