The Summer 2018 collection is here, featuring the bold, bright pops of color found in one of a kind surfite cabochons like the one in this pendant. Surfite is layered resin built up from the process of glassing surfboards. Google "surfite stone", and then for extra fun, google fordite, which is similar, but is made of layers of paint that has built up during the process of painting cars. The stones are sunny and happy, and have hues of royal blue, turquoise blue, juicy orange, bright yellow, etc.
This particular pendant contains a long oval surfite cabochon with hues of blue, black, turquoise and brick red.

The pendant is oxidized (darkened) in liver of sulphur and buffed and polished to bring out highlights. A tiny oval turquoise cab is soldered beneath.
