I am happy to take commissions and have a large stash of stones and fordite for you to choose from. Since I cut and polish the fordite myself I can cut and set a piece for you to make an extra special item. I ship using Royal Mails first class signed for service or special delivery depending on the value of the item, it should arrive the day after shipping. Im happy to post to a work address if there will be no one at home to sign for your package. Should you wish to return an item just let me know within 14 days of receiving it and send it back but you will have to pay the postage for sending it back (I refund the initial postage).
This necklace has 3 eye catching bullseye patterned pieces of fordite (probably from Fords plant in Wayne) which are bezel set in sterling silver and finished with sterling silver chain, clasp and extender. The bulls eyes have a grey base with concentric rings in blue, silver, red and black, a lot of the rings are sparkly and the 3 pieces are well matched. The fordite is set in open back settings so the necklace could be reversed to show the very different pattern on the other side but because of the doming it wont sit as well the wrong way round.
So whats fordite? Its many layers of cured paint that built up in the old spray booths at car plants (hence the earlier reference to Fords Wayne plant). As the panels were sprayed excess paint would build up on the rails that were used to slide the panels into the curing ovens and it is this material that became fordite, most was scraped but some was taken out of the factories to be used in jewellery and curios. Due to changes in how cars are painted very little of this material is formed now (if any, Ive heard the booths being referred to as zero waste) so if you are a fan of cars or just like the unusual then this is perfect for you. I have a stash of fordite from other factories so drop me a message if you would like something different.
Measure 16 in with 2 in extender, central fordite piece is bit over 1 in across by 3/4 in drop. Comes gift boxed.
