This delightful bat sterling silver necklace has been adapted from Edward Gorey's illustrations for The Broken Spoke, published in 1976. The Broken Spoke addresses a number of subjects, all tongue in cheek, from the Pedaling Palladini's to a 19th century Japanese stencil: "Bats and Bicycles", from which our bats are taken. Gorey was very interested in bats and drew a number of them. These are exceptional with their delicate tracery captured beautifully in metal. Perfect whimsical jewelry for Halloween and beyond.
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.
