Description

These smaller round stud earrings feature pastel hued slices of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver. The fordite has a pattern of gently wavey lines in white, beige, yellow with a bit of teal. The studs measure 8mm round and the sterling silver post and scroll is mounted approx in the middle. They are lightweight and are approx 2mm thick - I was aiming for something that could be worn with headphones during zoom meetings and this is probably the smallest and thinnest I can cut fordite. Comes gift boxed.
Fordite is the name given to many layers of baked car paint that builds up in old style spray booths in car factories. Because fashions in car colours have changed over the years it is possible to match up fordite to the old paint charts to work out which factory and when a sample was made - I believe that this material is 1958 Cadillac, it is certainly an early vintage (I can tell by the smell when I'm polishing it, don't worry the pendant doesn't smell when its finished). Vintage material like this is hard to find. I cut and polish this material myself so if you love the pastel hues but want something else drop me a message as I have a little of the rough left.
