A .925 sterling silver and Fordite necklace, fabricated by me in my northern California studio. It comes on a 24" oxidized sterling silver chain, but if you'd like a different length (anything up to 30") just send me a message and I'll change it for you.

Pendant dimensions: approximately 2" tall, 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 in a gift box made of recycled materials, tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for giving. This is ready to ship!

I have quite a bit of unset Fordite on hand and can make something for you! Send me a message and I can show you what I have available.

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 and 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.
