Hazelwood fordite and sterling silver drop earrings

Hazelwood fordite and sterling silver drop earrings
£135.00 1 Available
Love this


These colourful drop earrings feature fordite bezel set in sterling silver hanging beneath sterling silver safety hooks (if you've not come across safety hooks before they have an extra piece at the back which the hook tucks into so they can't be knocked out of your ears if they get tangled in a scarf or your hair). The fordite has a white base with rings of bright red, burgandy, deep grey, silver and yellow, some of the layers sparkle in the light. Fordite is lightweight so even though these earrings are of a larger size they are not heavy and would be comfortable to wear all day.
Not come across fordite before? It is layers of paint that built up in old spray booths at automotive factories in this case (probably) Ford's Hazelwood plant from at the beginning of the 2000's. The paint would build up on rails the vehicle panels were rested on during the painting process and it would get baked in between each coat turning it into a hard material that can be cut and polished to reveal the different colours of paint. The method of painting has changed over the years and now only small quantities of fordite are formed. I cut and polish alot of the fordite I use and have a collection from different factories and years so if you like the style of these earrings but would prefer a different colour then drop me a message as I may have suitable material.

Measures 46mm top to bottom and 12mm across (fordite is 30mm long) and comes in a gift box.
