Candy Apple Red Fordite Necklace, Set in Sterling Silver
A beautiful candy apple red Fordite necklace, fabricated by me in my northern California studio. It comes on a 22" oxidized sterling silver chain, but if you'd prefer a different length (anything up to 30") you can leave me a note at checkout and I'll change it for you.
Pendant dimensions: approximately 1 3/4" tall including the bail, or 43mm. 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 in a gift box made of recycled materials, tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for gift giving. This is ready to ship!
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.
