A .925 sterling silver and Fordite necklace, fabricated by me in my northern California studio. It's a beautiful aqua/turquoise color with lots of subtle sparkle.

Pendant dimensions: approximately 2" tall including the bail, or 50mm. Please see all photos for different views as the Fordite looks different in different lighting, and note that colors may appear differently on your monitor. It comes on a 22" oxidized sterling silver chain, though I can make it any length between 16" and 30",. If you'd like a different length please leave a note in the special instructions box at checkout with the length you'd like.

It comes in a gift box made of recycled materials, tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for giving. This is ready to ship!

What is Fordite? Fordite, also called Detroit Agate, is a modern recycled fossil. It's layers and layers of automotive paint overspray from US auto factories that has been cut an polished the same way gemstones are. Cars used to be spray painted by hand and the overspray and drips collected on the racks that held the cars. As it built up it would periodically get chipped off in big chunks, and someone figured out that it looked really cool when cut and polished! Modern day auto painting is a different process with little overspray, so the rough material is no longer created.
