Colourful fordite and sterling silver drop earrings

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


These smaller earrings pack a real eye catching punch thanks to the bright pattern on the fordite drops. The fordite is bezel set in sterling silver and the earrings are finished with sterling silver safety hooks (sometimes known as kidney wires). The fordite has a swirly pattern in vibrant reds, yellows and white with a few details in sparkly silver and navy blue, the patterns don't match but the colour palette is the same so they make a cohesive pair. The earrings measure 36mm from the top of the hook and are lightweight so they can be worn all day.
Fordite is the name given to over spray paint that builds up in car factories. The panels are rested on rails for painting and the over spray builds up on these rails getting cured after each layer to give a hard build up which can be cut and polished to show off the colours. This pair of cabochons were cut by SuzyBones an American fordite lapidarist who collects her fordite from estate sales in the Detroit area but the exact factory and date of this material is unknown.
Earrings measure approx 36mm from top of hook by 11mm wide (fordite measures 20 by 10mm). Comes in a sleek black gift box.
