Shop Announcement:

Christmas last order dates:- for deliveries within the UK my last order date is currently 21st Dec, I am monitoring Royal Mail's performance so this may change slightly if I start noticing delays. For international orders sorry but I can't guarantee delivery by Christmas the delays have just proven too unpredictable. However I'm happy to prepare a blurb about your item and email it to you, the recipient can then open this instead to hopefully get them excited for the real thing arriving.
I cut and polish my own fordite, surfite and bowlerite, I'm happy to take commissions. If you wish to return an item please inform me within 14 days of receiving it, you pay the postage for sending it back but I refund the initial postage.

Swirly fordite and silver earrings

Swirly fordite and silver earrings
£115.00 1 Available
Love this


These simple drop earrings feature super swirly sparkly pieces of fordite as a counterpoint to the classic shape. The fordite is white with sparkly silver, pale gold, red, black and just a hint of royal blue, the open back sterling silver setting allows you to see the different pattern on the reverse. The earrings have been finished with safety hooks (also known as kidney wires) to keep them secure in your ears.
Fordite is the name given to the cured build up of paint that forms in spray booths at car factories. I believe this material has come from GM's Orion Assembly plant near Detroit within the last 10 years but haven't managed to pin point a specific car model or year, the sparkly paints and limited range of colours are consistent with recently formed fordite. I cut and polish this material myself (you can see the rough in some of the photos, its not included in the sale) so if you would prefer something else then drop me a message - I have quite a stash of different types of fordite from 1958 Cadillac to recent Ford Cmax.
Measures approx 40mm top to bottom inc hook by 16mm wide (fordite is 25 x 16mm) and comes in a gift box.
