Seashell Preparation

In order to appreciate each finesse of a cameo, you would need to follow the whole creative process.

The artisan, who must possess significant experience, after previously selecting the most suitable shell for the work he intends to make, cuts the most precious part of the shell: the cup.

In order for a seashell to become a small masterpiece, the path is complex and delicate, starting with the “aggarbatura”: on the cup of the shell, the master draws the shape of the piece he intends to work on and finishes the edges to match the prefixed design.
