Cameos aren’t exactly an art form indigenous to Central America, which makes the Stone Castle Cameo Factory’s story all the more interesting: An artisan went to Italy to learn the craft from a master; he then returned to Honduras and taught others, thereby launching a cottage industry. Created from Honduran conch shells, the cameo art here ranges in size and type from traditional brooches to lamps. Customers paying in cash will be able to bargain for discounts.
