Description

These slightly chubby dangle earrings have eye catching drops of fordite bezel set in sterling silver and finished with minimalist hooks. The fordite has a white background with intricate patterns in red, black, silver, blue and very dark green, several of the colours are sparkly. The pattern on the two earrings doesn't match butt hey were cut from the same bit of rough (visible in some of the photos - not included) so the pairing is makes sense. These are a wider drop making them look a bit chubby but fordite is lightweight so they are not heavy in the ears, they measure approx 46mm top to bottom by 19mm across. The earrings have been finished with simple hooks (if you'd prefer kidney wires then let me know and I'll swap them over). Comes gift boxed.
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 recent 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 Jeep Wrangler.
