Winged Ballerina

This wonderful winged ballerina, on point, has been adapted from a larger drawing for a drop curtain used between acts in Amphigorey, the musical written and designed by Gorey and produced in 1992. The drawing was published in the The World of Edward Gorey and is currently in a private collection. Gorey loved the ballet and went almost every night. He has perfectly captured the fluttering pose of a ballerina poised to take flight.

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.
