Description

This marquise shape pendant features Dodge fordite which is set in a reversible sterling silver mount. One side of the pendant has a pattern of circles in turquoise, yellow and red, the other side has a similar ring pattern but in beige, red, cream with the odd hint of green and white. This particular piece of fordite came from the dribbly edge of the rough which gives it the amazing patterns however it had to be stabilised before I could cut it and you can see the odd pocket of clear resin from this process if you look closely. This does not detract from the piece in anyway I just feel I should mention it for completeness.
So what's fordite? It is layers of cured paint that built up in the old spray booths at car factories, this piece I've dated to 1970 from the Dodge factory - there are some unique colours in the rough (you can see it in the last photo and it is not included in the sale) which allow me to date it so specifically (if you are geeky about cars google MOPAR hi-impact paint colors, it contains sublime and go mango). The way that cars are painted has now changed and very little fordite is formed so it is becoming harder to source especially vintage material like this. Love your muscle cars but want something else? Drop me a message as I might have some of the rough left.
Measures about 60mm top to bottom (inc bail) by 20mm across and comes with a 18in sterling silver snake chain in a gift box. The bail is generous (8mm) in case you want to put it on a thong.
