Oblong 70's fordite and sterling silver pendant

Description

This dog tag style pendant features an oblong of swirly fordite bezel set in sterling silver. The open backed setting allows for it to be worn either way round showcasing the differently coloured patterns, the 'front' is white with swirls in red, maroon, royal blue and emerald, the 'back' is white with sparkly silver, emerald, burnt orange and blue, the fordite has a sheen to it rather than a glossy polish. I think this piece could easily be worn by a car loving gent or lady.
Fordite is layers of cured paint that built up in the old spray booths at car plants. The dealer I bought the rough material from knew that it came from Ford's plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky at some point in the 1970's, given the amount of white it might have come from the truck production line. Changes in how vehicles are painted mean that fordite is no longer formed and it is becoming increasingly difficult to source vintage material like this. You can see the rough in some of the photos - this isn't included in the sale - if you like the colour palette but would prefer something else drop me a message.
Measures 1 3/4 in by 1 in (including bail) and comes with an 18 in sterling silver chain (if you are buying for a gent or would prefer leather thong drop me a message). Comes gift boxed.
