Cat On A Unicycle

This improbable Cat on a Unicycle has been adapted from a drawing in the book Category, also known as Cat E Gory, a collection of fifty drawings of cats in invariably funny poses and/or involved in rather unusual activities for a cat. The charm of this particular cat with his arms crossed in bravado, scarf flying and balanced on a unicycle is enormous.

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 a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.

A truly unique figure in American art and illustration, Edward Gorey's [1925-2000] carefully executed drawings depict a mythical world in a style that is instantly recognizable.  Laurel Elliott has been working with the Gorey estate since 1999 creating jewelry from Gorey's inimitable drawings of cats, bats, ballerinas and whimsical creatures, most in improbable positions, turning two dimensional drawings into jewelry in low relief. Whether you know Edward Gorey or not, his wonderful creatures are irresistible.
