Surfite Topography Pendant
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 is a statement piece, with 3 layers of sterling silver sheet, hand-sawn to imitate a topographical map. These curves are reflected in the amazing cabochon, with its little paprika red island floating in a sea of turquoise and ocean blue. The cabochon measures 1x1/2" wide and 1" tall. The entire piece is constructed by hand from sterling silver sheet and wire, and the nail is adorned with a hand-cast sterling silver sea shell. The entire piece measures 1 3/4" wide and 2" tall and is oxidized with liver of sulphur to give depth and then buffed to bring out highlights.
The pendant is hung on a 19" oxidized 2.2mm sterling silver rolo chain, but you are welcome to leave a message upon checkout if you'd like a shorter length. Lobster clasp closure.
