Kenworth fordite drop earrings (sterling silver)

Kenworth fordite drop earrings (sterling silver)
Love this


These colourful fordite earrings have been cut and polished from a slab of fordite collected from the Kenworth truck factory in Chillicothe, Ohio. The drops of fordite have been bezel set in sterling silver and the earrings finished with sterling silver safety hooks (also known as kidney wires) to keep them safe in your ears. The fordite is a sister pair, closely matched but not exactly, with a swirly pattern in red, white, black with hints of sparkly blue, green and yellow. The drops are 28mm by 15mm, large enough to grab attention but not heavy (total drop is 42mm from top of hook).
Fordite is the name given to layers of automotive paint that builds up in the spray booths at vehicle factories. The panels are rested on rails so that the paint can be sprayed on and the the panel slid into the curing ovens. Paint builds up on the rails layer by layer being cured hard so that it can be cut and polished to reveal the many colours. You can see some of the rough material in the first photo and I have more so if you would like something else making then drop me a message.
Measures approx 42mm top to bottom and 15mm across, comes in a sleek gift box.
