Corvette fordite and silver 'hoop' earrings

Description

These 'hoop' earrings feature semi circles of fordite bezel set in sterling silver in a hoop type design. The fordite is semi circular and silver wire describes the rest of the circle (its more of an oval really) and this wire goes through the loop on sterling silver safety hooks to keep them secure in your ears. They have lots of wonderful wobbly movement. The fordite has diagonal stripes in predominately dark red, yellow and white. They measure 47mm (from top of hook) by 22mm across, fordite is lightweight so comfortable to wear all day.
Not come across fordite before? It is layers of cured paint that builds up in spray booths at vehicle factories where the paint misses the car panel it is meant for. This over spray builds up getting baked in between each layer giving a hard material which can be cut and polished to show the colours. As painting technology improves and becomes more accurate less fordite is formed so it is becoming harder to source fordite, this material is from the Corvette factory in Bowling Green. Kentucky (I bought it from a guy who works there) and you can see the rough in one of the photos (not included). Love the idea of fordite but want something else - drop me a message, I have more of the rough and since I cut and polish it myself I should be able to make what you want.
Measures 47mm (from top of hook) by 22mm across and comes in a gift box.
