Surfite Heart Pendant in Sterling Silver
If you thought the fordite car paint was cool, here's something even cooler - Surfite or surfboard paint! Google it - it's pretty fascinating. Stripes of different colors are layers of paint, including the clear coat used to finish the surfboards. I love that this "stone" is actually a waste by-product and I incorporate many repurposed materials in my work.
Set in a smooth sterling bezel on 2 layers of 22 gauge hand-stamped sterling silver sheet. Above the heart is a clear quartz marble. The reverse sude of the pendant is textured with a scribbled heart pattern. Oxidized in liver of sulphur and sanded and polished to bring out the highlights of the silver. Pendant measures 2 3/8" long & 1 3/8" wide.
22.5" sterling silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure.
