Fordite Heart Pendant in Sterling Silver

Regular price $ 175 Unit price  per 

This is an amazing asymmetrical heart made from fordite (see below). I've prong-set it so that the layers of paint are visible on the sides. Hand-fabricated entirely in sterling silver. 18" oxidized sterling silver rolo chain.

Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor City agate,[1] is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished.[2] It was formed from the buildup of layers of enamel paint slag on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray-painted (a now automated process), which have been baked numerous times.[3] In recent times the material has been recycled into jewelry.[4]
