Sterling silver and monochrome detroit fordite pendant

Sterling silver and monochrome detroit fordite pendant
Love this


This striking pendant features a stunning piece of stripy drop fordite from Detroit which is bezel set in sterling silver. Fordite is layer upon layer of over spray paint that built up in the booths when they manually sprayed cars, when this material was 'laid down' they were evidently making lots of black, white, sparkly silver and gun metal grey cars, there are also two stripes of scarlet red for a little colour. I cut and polished this pear drop cab myself and it has a wonderful sheen. The way in which cars were painted changed in the mid 80's and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of the material so if you love your cars (or just the unusual) get hold of some fordite before it runs out!
The pendant is open backed so you could wear it the wrong way round if you wanted to, the back is more grey in tone but has a single band of sparkly cherry red running across it. Pendant measures 40mm (just over 1 1/2 inches) from the top of the bail to the bottom of the setting and 20mm (3/4 inch) across at the widest point. Comes complete with a 16 inch sterling silver chain but you could easily change it to a thin leather cord for a more unisex look.
Comes gift boxed.
