Tabby Cat

This shy cat has been adapted from a drawing in the 1982 edition of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, which was illustrated by Edward Gorey. This drawing appears at the close of the chapter titled "The Ad-dressing of Cats" which contains the inimitable lines beloved by cat lovers everywhere "A CAT IS NOT A DOG".

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.
