Dangling Cat Necklace in Sterling Silver

Members: $41.40 / Non-Members: $46.00

Product Description:

This whimsical cat has been adapted from Edward Gorey’s cover illustrations for Amphigorey: Fifteen Books, in which the drawing showed the cat hanging from the crossbar of the letter H.

Created using the lost wax casting process where a carved or cast wax original is encased in clay or other investment, the wax is melted under temperature and the resulting voids are filled with molten metal. This method has been used since early Egyptian times for casting fine metals where the highest level of detail is required.

Sterling silver pendant: 0.75” x 0.25”
Sterling silver chain: 17”
