Description

This pendant features a large triangular piece of vintage fordite which is bezel set in sterling silver with an articulated bail. The fordite is white with many coloured bands including navy, red, pale blue and yellow. The setting is open backed so you can see patterns, there is a wide stripe of red which is actually the outside layer of paint from where this material formed on the rails. The setting has been burnished rather than polished so has a subtle shine rather than mirror finish.
Don't know what fordite is? Well its the build up of cured paint from the old spray booths at car plants. The car panels would be rested on rails during painting so that they could be slid into the curing ovens and paint would land on the rails as well as the cars, as more panels were painted additional layers of paint would be added to the rails and it is this build up that became fordite. This material is from the 70's, it was part of a parcel of rough material which I have dated to Dodge 1970/71 but that material was all white on the outside and this was red so it might have come from a different factory. The method for painting cars has changed and only small amounts of fordite is formed and vintage material is becoming harder to source.
Fordite measures 37 by 25mm, total drop is 57mm, comes in a gift box with a silver chain.
