Rhomboid vintage Dodge fordite and silver pendant

Description

This freeform rhomboid ish shape pendant features a brightly coloured piece of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver. The pendant is fully reversible so show off the differing patterns and colours, the 'front' has a streak of blue then stripes of white, red, yellow and sparkly emerald. The 'back' has the same white ground with bands of gold, red and blue, one corner is the outer crust of the rough and the pattern distorts which adds to its interest. Fordite is lightweight so even though this pendant is chunky it is not heavy and could comfortably be worn all day.
So what is fordite? Its is layers of paint that built up on the surrounds of paint booths at car factories, as each car was painted a new colour would be added leading to the wacky palette. The material was repeatedly passed through the curing ovens and eventually had to be removed - some of this then left the factories and ended up in the hands of jewellers. Yellow and purple are unusual colours to find in fordite so I have compared this material with old colour charts and I'm fairly certain that it came from a Chrysler (Dodge) production line in 1970/71 (they are in no way associated with it though). I cut this material myself and you can see some of the rough and other pieces in the final photo - these aren't included.
Measures 36 by 34mm excluding bail and comes with a silver chain in a gift box (you could easily put it on a leather cord or torque as the bail is a generous 6mm internal diameter).
