Description

These silver stud earrings showcase round slices of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver and finished with a post and scroll fitting (also sterling silver). The fordite has a broad wavey pattern in white, orange, yellow and grey with a little bit of mint green, there are a few dimples on the surface from air bubbles in the material. The studs measure approx 12mm round and the post is mounted approx in the middle. They are lightweight and have a thin profile - they aren't quite of even thickness ranging from 1 1/2mm to 2 1/2mm thick. Comes gift boxed.
Fordite is the name given to many layers of cured paint that builds up in old style spray booths at vehicle factories, the paint gets baked hard in between each layer leading to a durable material that can be cut to show off the many colours. This particular material was sold to me as coming from a tractor factory (possibly a Ford plant in Dearborn, USA) in the 1930's but I've not been able to track down any colour charts for tractors of that era to know it that is accurate. I cut this material myself from the slabettes I bought, you can see the rough in some of the photos - its not included but if you want me to make you something else drop me a message. Fordite is becoming increasingly hard to source and thanks to more efficient painting processes less is being made so if you love your cars get some of the unique material whilst you can.
