Skating Cat Sterling Silver Earrings
Adapted from Edward Gorey's back cover illustrations for AMPHIGOREY.
- 3/4" wide x 7/8" long
The designer earrings of this fun animated skating cat, a part of the whimsical jewelry collection, has been adapted from Edward Gorey's back cover illustrations for AMPHIGOREY - Fifteen Books: a compilation of books published between 1953 and 1965. The drawing shows a cat skating with the letter P in the word Gryphoemia, a Goreyism meaning either the heroine of a forgotten 19th century novel or a morbid affliction of the toes. Gorey loved absurdity.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
