Fordite Heart Pendant with Rosarita in Sterling Silver
You probably already know what fordite is, but if you don't - it's car paint! Google it - it's pretty fascinating. Speaking of pretty - this specimen is a stunner and is special for the whorls of glittery blue in the center. Most of the fordite you'll see contains the same popular car colors of the 60's - white, black & red. Occasionally there will be yellow green or blue, which makes those stones more special! This specimen has blue, yellow AND turquoise! I love that this "stone" is actually a waste by-product and I incorporate many repurposed materials in my work.
Set in a serrated sterling bezel on 20 gauge stamped sterling silver sheet. Above the fordite is a tiny red rosarita cab (another production by-product; google it!). Two solid sterling silver detailed leaves are on either side of the rosarita. These were made by hand by pressing recycled silver in a hydraulic press against a steel die, then sawed out & sanded.
