Description

This pendant features a rounded freeform drop of fordite which has been smoothly bezel set in sterling silver. The pendant has a low dome and open back setting meaning it can be worn either way round to show off the very different patterns on the two sides. The 'front' has distorted concentric rings in sparkly blue, black, yellow white and others, the 'back' has a broad stripe of sparkly blue with stripes of black, white and grey on either side. The shape and colour palette are unisex so it could be worn by anyone who likes the unusual (or trucks).
Fordite is layers of cured paint that built up in the old spray booths at vehicle plants, the panels would be placed on rails to be sprayed and paint would build up on the rails getting cured after each coat. The guy I bought the rough material from worked at the Kenworth plant in Chillicothe USA. Kenworth make cabs for big 18 wheel trucks often with custom paint colours hence the range in this piece. Changes in how vehicles are painted mean that fordite is only formed in small quantites now and it is becoming increasingly difficult to source. You can see the rough in some of the photos - its the white thing and isn't included in the sale - if you like the colour palette but would prefer something else drop me a message.
Measures 50mm top to bottom (inc bail) and 21mm wide. Comes with an 18 in silver chain in a gift box (you could easily put it on a different chain or thong).
