1970 vintage MOPAR fordite and sterling silver triangular necklace

1970 vintage MOPAR fordite and sterling silver triangular necklace
£150.00

Description

This eyecatching necklace features a triangular piece of stripy fordite which is bezel set in sterling silver and completed with an integral sterling silver chain and extender. The fordite has a pattern of diagonal stripes in mostly soft shades of blue, grey, beige, sage green but has splashed across the middle an attention grabbing pairing of orange and lime green. The setting is open backed so it doesn't matter if you accidentally put it on backwards - the back is just as interesting. Fordite measures 1 1/2 inches across with a drop of 1 inch, the necklace is 17 inches with a 2 inch extender.
So what's fordite? Its layers of cured car paint that built up in the old manual spray booths, changes to painting methods mean it is no longer formed and supplies are running out especially of the vintage material like this. Careful comparison to old paint chip cards has allowed me to identify this as having come from a Dodge factory in 1970 as it features some of the MOPAR hi impact colors which cost extra and were only available for very limited periods of time so this would be an excellent present for someone who loves their old muscle cars (or whom you would like to love old muscle cars). I cut and polish this material myself - you can see the rough in the second photo, this is not included - so if you want something different making or matching items for the necklace then drop me a message.
Comes gift boxed and I'll email you a blurb with the history of fordite.
